Aguero can be the star performer; CAPITAL ONE CUP FINAL.

Byline: Mark Langdon

STRIKERS don't have a great recent record in the Alan Hardaker Trophy for the League Cup final man of the match, but City sharp-shooter Sergio Aguero can change all of that at Wembley this afternoon.

Didier Drogba was the last forward to claim the award in 2007, while goalkeeper Ben Foster has taken the honour twice since then.

However, Aguero is in sensational form. The Argentina international striker has scored eight goals in his last seven matches for City.

If Liverpool are to lift the trophy they will have to defend well to stop Aguero and a saver on robust centre-back Mamadou Sakho is advised.

Last ten League Cup man of the match winners: 2015 J Terry, 2014 S Nasri, 2013 N Dyer, 2012 S Downing, 2011 B Foster, 2010 A Valencia, 2009 B Foster, 2008 J Woodgate, 2007 D Drogba, 2006 W Rooney.
