Swansea denied Bradford the perfect end to its fairytale run in the League Cup by thrashing the fourth-tier club 5-0 in the final, capping its centenary season with a first major trophy.

Manchester City hasn't given up on winning silverware this year, either, after reviving its faint Premier League title hopes with a 2-0 win over Chelsea. The champions stayed 12 points behind Manchester United.

While City needed second-half goals by Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez to wear down the European champions, Swansea's victory at Wembley Stadium was never really in doubt from the moment Nathan Dyer scored the 16th-minute opener.

Dyer and Jonathan de Guzman both finished with two goals and Michu grabbed the other in the largest winning margin in the final of English football's second-tier knockout competition.
