This season’s FA Cup final will be a hotly-contested battle between eternal rivals Manchester City and Manchester United.

Man City were already crowned English Premier League champions and are keen to secure a double at least by Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side still have the Champions League final against Inter Milan to look forward to on June 10.

City have not lifted the FA Cup since they destroyed Watford 6-0 in the 2019 final.

Man United on the other hand have not been crowned FA Cup champions since 2016, where they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the final.

A piece of silverware for Erik Ten Hag would surely mean more to the Man United faithful but this City team has proved relentless.

The 142nd FA Cup Final will, for the first time, be a derby between Manchester City and Manchester United.

Inspiring City’s success this season has been Erling Haaland, scoring a remarkable 52 goals in 51 games so far, including a record-breaking 36 in the league.

Will City remain on course for a record-breaking treble or can United stop them in their tracks and get a win?
