15:00 Saturday

Manchester City head to Wembley in search of a second successive domestic double, having secured an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title.

In a repeat of last year’s FA Cup final on Saturday (and a possible farewell for Erik ten Hag as Man United manager), City come up against their neighbours. Ilkay Gundogan scored twice in last year’s final, including the fastest goal in an FA Cup final after just 12 seconds.

Man City vs Man United FA Cup Final Prediction

  • Pep Guardiola's side were 2-1 winners in this exact fixture last season, with the now departed Gundogan responsible for both goals.
  • Manchester United ended the Premier League campaign with back-to-back victories against Newcastle and Brighton, but could only finish eighth.
  • Erik ten Hag's side will secure a place in the UEFA Europa League if they are to lift the trophy here. If they lose, they won't play European football next season.
  • Including last season's final, United have lost their last three meetings with their city rivals.
  • City have won seven of their previous 12 FA Cup finals and could secure back-to-back wins for the very first time.

 

Score Prediction: Man City 3-1 Man United (10/1 William Hill)
