The stakes are huge for both teams at Wembley Stadium as Manchester City take on Manchester United in the first-ever all-Manchester FA Cup Final, with more than just bragging rights and a famous trophy up for grabs, and we are all square at the break.
City are looking to win to move one step closer to winning the Treble, and got off to the perfect start after Ilkay Gundogan scored with just 13 seconds on the clock – making it the fastest in FA Cup Final history. United were shellshocked, and understandably so, but did hit back in controversy.
Jack Grealish was penalised, via a VAR intervention, for handball in the area after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s header flicked off his fingers. Bruno Fernandes duly slotted home from the spot and it was City’s turn to be stunned. Follow all the FA Cup Final action below with our dedicated match blog.
Micah Richards predicts scoreline of Man City vs Man Utd
Former England defender, Micah Richards has predicted this Saturday’s FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United.
Both teams are looking to lift their second domestic cup of this season, after City retained the Premier League and United won the Carabao Cup.
Speaking with SportsMail, Richards said it would be a tight game but City will win 2-1 at Wembley.
“City will dominate possession but I don’t think it will be a stroll in terms of getting the result.
“I’ve watched the game between the sides in January again and the damage Marcus Rashford inflicted came when he ran through the middle from deep.
“It will be interesting to see if Ten Hag occupies Kyle Walker with Alejandro Garnacho. City, though, has so many options and will see the job through,” Richards said.
