City's only final defeat in the League Cup came on a day when they missed plenty of chances to have the game wrapped up.
Manchester City stars do not need to be afforded the extra protection called for by manager Pep Guardiola, according to Arsene Wenger.
City are 16 points clear in the Premier League and all but through to the Champions League quarter-finals after playing some outstanding football, but Guardiola recognises trophies provide a more tangible measure of success.
Arsenal team news:Arsene Wenger confirmed to Sky Sports that David Ospina will start in goal against City at Wembley.
Had they punched their weight when they had the opportunity, though, Arsenal could have been contenders for Guardiola and the landscape would nearly certainly look different.
Claudio Bravo has played all of City's Carabao Cup matches and he will start on Sunday, with Ederson on the bench. Arsenal had already finished outside the top four (and behind Tottenham) for the first time in Wenger's tenure, fan protests were more embittered than ever and there was a genuine feeling, after a litany of lows, that this could be the end of the Wenger era.
Aaron Ramsey is a major doubt because of a groin injury, but fellow midfielder Mesut Ozil "should be OK" after suffering from illness.
Had Arsenal's powerbrokers been ambitious and ruthless two or even six years ago when he left Barcelona, they could have mounted a compelling case for Guardiola to move to succeed Wenger. Oleksandr Zinchenko or Danilo could feature with Benjamin Mendy (knee) out long term. Ozil seems likely to play, however, probably on the right flank where he can drift inside and attempt to find Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, making his League Cup final debut in the final itself.
And his run of nine wins out of nine in various semi-finals, finals and Community Shields since then is enough to buoy his spirits after a disappointing defeat against Ostersunds in the Europa League on Thursday.
Guardiola leads his Manchester City team out in his first final since taking charge of the club last season and he is also eager to land his first piece of silverware.
Aston Villa's first of two League Cup wins in three years was an impressively comprehensive victory against Alex Ferguson's Manchester United.
