Mings: Anything can happen at Wembley

Tyrone Mings is relishing Sunday’s Carabao Cup Final and the opportunity to make more happy memories with Aston Villa at Wembley.

Mings helped guide Villa to Play-Off Final glory at the national stadium less than 12 months ago, sealing promotion to the Premier League.

The club’s supporters are preparing for their third Wembley outing in as many seasons as Dean Smith’s side face Manchester City in the showpiece occasion.

And Mings, while insisting focus remains on securing top-flight survival, is determined to try and enjoy more success on a day to remember.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” he told VillaTV.

“Obviously it’s going to be a tough game but the occasion of a cup final for the club and for the fans will be great.

“As players, we’re going there and we want to come away with happy memories.

“There’s nothing worse than going to Wembley and losing.

“Everybody here is looking forward to it.

“We don’t want it to detract away from our focus in the league but, at the same time, it’s going to be a good day out for everybody.”

Manchester City are the reigning League Cup holders and will be targeting a third successive triumph in what is their fourth Final in the competition in five years.

Centre-back Mings, 26, believes Villa can play without pressure against Pep Guardiola’s side and insists they will go into the game believing anything is possible.

“As players, you always want to win things and cup finals don’t come around very often so to get to the final is obviously a massive achievement,” he said.

“But when you get there – regardless of who you play on the day – you want to go there and give a good account of yourselves.

“And obviously, on the day, anything can happen.

“So we’re going into it full of confidence, there’s no pressure on us, really.

“But we know what capabilities we have.”

He added: “We’re just full of excitement. We know how big the task will be but it would be great to deliver some silverware for the players and for the club.”
