Manchester City clinched their second Capital One Cup Final triumph in three years with a penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool, and there was plenty to shout about on social media!The City players were particularly active following the final whistle with captain Vincent Kompany, who was also voted Man of the Match, posting this tweet in the dressing room.
Fernandinho scored the opening goal of the game to put City in front, only for Philippe Coutinho to equalise eight minutes from the end to force extra-time.
Sergio Aguero, who scored a crucial penalty in the shoot-out, celebrated winning his sixth trophy since joining Manchester City in 2011.
Yaya Toure was the man to seal the Capital One Cup, slotting the deciding spot kick beyond Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool goal. He also tweeted to congratulate his team-mates.
A great day to end a good week. Proud of all my team mates!! 🏆😀👌🏾 pic.twitter.com/jtTlhEmRJj— Yaya Touré (@YayaToure) February 28, 2016

The event itself saw more than one million tweets sent, making it one of the most talked about sporting events on the social networking site across the weekend.
This was, in part, down to two special engagement tools which The Football League utilised in the lead up to, and during, the Capital One Cup Final.
Prior to the game there was also a hive of activity across the Capital One Cup website and social media platforms, including the Team of the Tournament which was announced before kick-off at Wembley Stadium.
