Manchester City edged past Wolves in a closely contested affair which saw The Citizens winning the game on penalties. City won the penalty shootout 3-1 thanks to Claudio Bravo's heroics after both teams failed to score in normal time.
In the post-match interview, Guardiola had this to say,
"It is not acceptable, the ball was unacceptable for a high-level competition. It is too light, it moves all over the place, it is not a good ball.
It is impossible to score with a ball like that and I can say that because we won, I’m not making excuses.
I’m sorry Carabao Cup is not a serious ball for a serious competition. It’s marketing, money, OK but it’s not acceptable but it has no weight, nothing.”
