Willy Caballero proved an unlikely hero with three penalty saves as Manchester City beat Liverpool 3-1 in a Wembley Stadium shootout Sunday to win the English League Cup.The game finished 1-1 following extra time, Philippe Coutinho equalizing for Liverpool in the 83rd minute after Fernandinho had put City ahead early in the second half, and Caballero took center stage in the shootout.The 34-year-old Argentine, who deputizes for Joe Hart in cup competitions, saved penalties from Lucas Leiva, Coutinho and substitute Adam Lallana and although Fernandinho hit the post with his spot kick, Yaya Toure stroked home the decisive penalty to give City victory.Klopp elected to pick midfielder Lucas and Sakho at center-back, but Sakho hurt himself in an early clash of heads with teammate Emre Can and looked wobbly as Sergio Aguero slipped past him to curl in a shot that Simon Mignolet brilliantly touched onto the left-hand past.Can settled Liverpool's nerves with a classy Panenka penalty before Fernandinho hit the post, but with Caballero thwarting Lucas, Coutinho and Lallana, penalties from Jesus Navas, Aguero and Yaya Toure saw City home.
