Man City vs Man United Team FA Cup Final News

Manchester City come into this final with almost a full squad available. Although first-choice goalkeeper Ederson is out, cup specialist Stefan Ortega is likely to start. Mateo Kovacic and Nathan Ake, who were rested for the West Ham match, are expected to feature, boosting City’s defensive options.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have been grappling with several injuries. Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, who returned for the final league game, are expected to start at the heart of the defense. 

However, Anthony Martial remains a doubt due to a groin injury, and the fitness of key players like Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Mason Mount, and Luke Shaw remains a concern.

Probable Line-Up

Man City XI: Ortega (GK), Gvardiol, Akanji, Dias, Walker, Rodri, Foden, De Bruyne, Silva, Doku, Haaland

Man United XI: Onana (GK), Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Martinez, Dalot, Mainoo, Amrabat, Diallo, Garnacho, McTominay, Fernandes


Considering Manchester City’s formidable form and recent dominance over Manchester United, they are strong favorites to win the FA Cup final. City’s attacking prowess and United’s defensive vulnerabilities suggest a high-scoring affair with City likely emerging victorious.

Correct Score: Manchester City 3-1 Manchester United

Reason: Reflecting on City’s attacking strength and United’s defensive frailties, a repeat of their March 3-1 scoreline seems plausible.
