The stage is set for a thrilling FA Cup final encounter between Manchester City and Manchester United on May 25th at Wembley. This will be the second consecutive year that the two Manchester giants face off in the final, following City’s 2-1 win last season.

United had a narrow escape in the semi-finals, as Coventry City came back from 3-0 down to level at 3-3 in added time. However, Coventry’s winning goal was ruled out by a marginal VAR offside decision, and United went on to win 4-2 on penalties.

City, on the other hand, booked their place in the final with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Chelsea, thanks to Bernardo Silva’s 84th-minute goal. This will be City’s eighth FA Cup final, as they seek to add to their previous wins in 1904, 1934, 1956, 1969, 2011, 2019, and 2023.

City have had a convincing run to the final, with wins over Huddersfield Town, Tottenham Hotspur, Luton Town, and Newcastle United. United, however, will be looking to avenge their defeat from last year and claim their first FA Cup title since 2016.

The two teams have a rich history in the competition, and this encounter promises to be a thrilling one. With City’s strong form and United’s determination to win, it’s set to be a closely contested match. The start time is yet to be confirmed, but one thing is certain – this is a final that you won’t want to miss!
