Man City vs Manchester United: FA Cup final live stream

Manchester City will face Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley this weekend.

A Manchester derby takes centre stage in the showpiece fixture of club football’s oldest competition for the second year in succession, with Man City looking to secure an unprecedented back-to-back double having lifted the Premier League trophy on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s imperious side have shown little sign of letting up, despite hints of the manager soon calling it a day, and Phil Foden has stepped up this season to truly become one of the world’s best attacking midfielders.

Man Utd simply must win the FA Cup if they are to qualify for Europe after a lowly eighth-placed finished was confirmed on the final weekend of the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag is fighting for his job ahead of a potential summer overhaul by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, so the delivery of a trophy will provide a much-needed morale boost for all at Old Trafford.

Date, kick-off time and venue

This year’s FA Cup final will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday May 25, 2024.

The game will kick-off at 3pm BST, the same time as last year’s final between the same two clubs, following discussions with police, local authorities and broadcasters.

Man City vs Man Utd team news

City are practically free of injuries heading to Wembley.

Ederson is ruled out but Guardiola may have swapped out his first-choice goalkeeper for cup specialist Stefan Ortega anyway.

Mateo Kovacic and Nathan Ake will look to make their case in training having been benched for the win over West Ham.

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez returned for United on the final weekend of the league season so could be reintroduced as the starting defensive partnership at Wembley.

Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw are all racing back to fitness while it is unlikely that Anthony Martial will be involved even if he does finally recover from groin surgery in time.

Ten Hag has deployed 4-2-2-2 system in the past two matches with Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay the advanced midfielders around wingers Amad Diallo and Alejandro Garnacho, leaving Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford on the bench. It appears likely he’ll stick with that setup for the final.
