IMG 1853

For the first time in history, the 142nd FA Cup Final will feature a derby between Manchester City and Manchester United.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City have already secured a piece of silverware this season, with United winning the Carabao Cup and City retaining the Premier League title.


United now have their sights set on winning both domestic cups in the same season, a feat they have never accomplished before.

Manchester United not only have bragging rights at stake in the upcoming derby against Manchester City, but they must also secure a victory to put a stop to City’s seemingly unstoppable march towards a historic Treble, which would match United’s own famous success from 1999.


The FA Cup Final between Manchester City and Manchester United is set to kick off at 3pm BST on Saturday, June 3, 2023, and will be held at Wembley Stadium.

News from both teams


Manchester City is concerned about the fitness of up to five players, including Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, and Ruben Dias, ahead of the Wembley final.

Following their loss to Brentford, Guardiola confirmed that the team has a few players with minor injuries. On a more positive note, both Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte have recovered from their injuries and are fit to play.


As for Manchester United, Erik ten Hag’s squad will be without Anthony Martial up front, and there is uncertainty over Antony’s availability due to an ankle injury sustained last week.

With that in mind, Marcus Rashford is expected to lead the line, with support from Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, and possibly Alejandro Garnacho.


In defense, Raphael Varane will likely pair up with either Harry Maguire or Victor Lindelof. Despite missing the recent 2-1 victory over Fulham, Luke Shaw is anticipated to be fit for the upcoming game.

The manager will have to choose between Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot for the right-back position.


As for the midfield pairing, Casemiro and Fred are expected to partner up, with Cristian Eriken, the most attack-minded player, being left out against City.
