Manchester City vs Manchester United: as it happened

City beat United to lift the FA Cup

Double done, treble next?

City do the double

Manchester City lift the FA Cup trophy!

Captain Gundogan raises the trophy as City win the first ever all-Manchester FA Cup final.

What a team!

Pep Guardiola and the City players climb the 107 Wembley steps to collect the FA Cup trophy.

Treble talk

Yes, the treble talk is more alive than ever before. They have a full week to prepare for the Champions League final in Istanbul and they will be massive favourites against Inter.

The United players make their way up the Wembley steps to collect their runner-up medals.

Seventh heaven

It's the seventh FA Cup in Manchester City's history.

City win the 100th FA Cup final at Wembley!

Can they do the treble?

They've done it! City have beaten their cross-city rivals United and have clinched the double.

It's heartbreak for United.


United clear the corner.

Haaland takes it into the corner and wins a corner.

OFF Walker

ON Laporte

City are holding on!

Garnacho overhits the cross and it goes out for a throw-in.

The United corner comes in. It's cleared!

McTominay's header goes just over!

So, so close...

Haaland heads the ball away as City defend an United attack.

There will be FOUR minutes added on!

City change

Bruno beats Akanji once, he beats him twice, and his clipped ball to the back stick has too much on it. Ortega takes his time with the goal-kick...

Rodri defends brilliantly to keep United out and Ortega has a goal-kick.

Ten Hag is looking frustrated on the touchline. He knows time is running out.

Half of Manchester is in the capital and one half of them will be celebrating very shortly. But who will it be?

We're into the final 10 minutes of normal time in London.

Bernardo Silva drives the ball across goal. Akanji just misses it at the back post...

Fred is booked for fouling Grealish from behind. City lead 2-1 at Wembley.

Weghorst comes on

Sancho is off.

City change

Foden comes on!

Garnacho cuts in from the left and curls it with his right. It's inches wide of the far post. 

This is far from over!


Sooooo close!

The German creator taps in from close range but he's just off.

Gundogan has his hat-trick, but he's offside!


It's a Rashford rocket. He gets it out of his feet quickly, and cuts across it but there's too much on it and he misses the target as it flies into the fans behind the goal.

He does have 30 goals this season. Ten Hag has been key.

Haaland cam: The big man has been pretty quiet this afternoon.

With the Garnacho change, Bruno has moved centrally and the Argentine forward will play wide.

If this ends in a draw, it will indeed go to extra time.


He's in acres of space about 25 yards out and pings an effort. To De Gea's relief, it's high, and sails over.

United change

Garnacho is warming up for United. Eriksen could be the player to make way.

Casemiro reads the danger well in his defensive midfield role and stops the oncoming Akanji. It remains 2-1 to City at Wembley.

Gundogan releases Grealish on the left. The England international turns back inside to recycle it. City are happy to keep the ball. 

How good has Gundogan been over the last two to three months though? Big game player

De Bruyne has 27 assists for City this season!

City will want to keep him, but he could be on his way to Barcelona!

De Gea should do better. City took the lead early in the first half and they have taken the lead early in the second half.

Gundogan gets his second, volleying De Bruyne's free home from 20 yards out. 

City have the lead again!



De Bruyne is on his way past Fred, who kicks the Belgian. City have a free out near the touchline.

Ten Hag has denied that United's motivation is stopping City from winning the treble, but that will be definitely in the back of their minds!

Gundogan gave City the lead with a super strike in the opening 13 seconds. Bruno Fernandes then scored from the spot to equalise for United, who have won this trophy 12 times.

Well, if you are just joining us, it's 1-1 between City and United at Wembley.

Sancho wriggles his way into the box, but the ball is eventually cleared.

I have no changes to report!

We're underway for the second half!

Gundogan's smashing volley came after just 13 seconds - the quickest goal in FA Cup history.

United are back in the game after that Bruno penalty, so it's going to be intriguing.

Big second half coming up!

What a second half we have in store!

1-1 at Wembley

Level at the interval!

De Bruyne's set-piece from the left is caught by De Gea. And there is the whistle for half-time!

Wan-Bissaka is booked for clipping Grealish.

Lindelof goes long to Rashford through the middle but City defend the danger. With Martial out, Rashford is occupying the central role this afternoon.

There will be four additional minutes!

Today is indeed the first time City and United have met in the FA Cup in 12 years. 

Last time out, City won 1-0 in the semi-final in 2011.

VARANE! What a great chance that is, but his effort goes well wide from six yards.

We're into the final few minutes of the first half and United have a corner on the right.

Ten Hag's side have done well to get back into this one but there will, as always, be question marks over the penalty that was awarded. Grealish raises his hand but he is very close to Wan-Bissaka when the ball touches the former Villa man's hand.

So United are back in it at Wembley. We have a game on our hands!

Man City 1-1 Man United

Bruno Fernandes goal.

The Portuguese playmaker scores the huge pressure penalty, going low to the left. Ortega goes the other way.

Bruno puts Ortega the wrong way to score from the spot.



It's 1-1

United can equalise from the spot...

It comes off Grealish's hand and UNITED HAVE A PENALTY!

There is a possible penalty here!

De Bruyne!

The Belgian goes so close. His low left-footed drives goes just past De Gea's left-hand post.

Gundogan's goal came after 13 seconds - the quickest goal in FA Cup history!

De Gea is down getting treatment. The other 21 players are having some water.


That's his first chance. Bruno sends in a low cross from the right. Rashford, in space, heads just wide.

The United fans are making plenty of noise.

Manchester United are featuring in the FA Cup Final for the 21st time, the joint-most of any side in the competition's history.


He tries to whip it into the top corner from the edge of the box. It flies just over the bar after he rolls Varane like he's not even there.

Haaland comes deep for it again, and wins a free, again. City have the lead and are happy to dictate the tempo of this one.

Sancho is played in but Walker shows his speed to win the ball. The full-back clocked over 37km/h this season - an absolute rocket.

Fred fouls Haaland near the halfway line and City have a free.

City have not conceded a single goal in the FA Cup this season.

They're the first club to reach the final without conceding since Everton in the 1965-66 campaign.

That's a nasty one from Casemiro on Akanji. The Brazilian goes in studs up. City have a free.

Can Haaland add to his 52-goal tally for Manchester City today?

City lead 1-0 if you're only joining.

After a crazy opening six minutes, the game has slightly settled. Stones is taking up the more advanced role he has played of late, slipping into City's midfield to give them an extra man going forward.

City have started like a house on fire. Remember, earlier this season, they scored six against United, with Foden and Haaland both scoring hat-tricks.


He heads De Bruyne's cross just wide!

What a start from City.

It's a remarkable start for City. The City fans can't quite believe it. Or the United fans!

City have the lead inside 16 seconds!

Gundogan volleys into the top corner from 20 yards.



City kick us off, they're playing from left to right.

We're underway at Wembley!

It's time for the national anthem.

The atmosphere inside Wembley is something else. The sun is out and the teams are out!

The teams are in the tunnel!

Wembley is absolutely rocking! One half in blue; one half in red.

United XI

City XI

The Wembley pitch is soaked in sunshine here with only one flank sitting in the shade.

The fans are arriving at Wembley.

They've come south for this one, with silverware on the line against big rivals.

We've spotted Liam Gallagher in the crowd. And Oasis is blasting in the background.

Warm-ups underway

The teams are out ahead of kick-off!

Haaland's first season

Haaland this season:

50 games, 52 goals

Absolutely phenomenal.

Bruno talks

Bruno Fernandes has spoken ahead of today's clash at Wembley.

"It's a big game, as every FA Cup final is," the Portuguese playmaker told BBC.

"Obviously we want to win the game, it doesn't matter who the opponent is.

"It's a trophy for us and we know the derby means a lot to the fans, and to us too because we play for them. We are here to give everything to win the game."

Ortega starts for City

Stefan Ortega starts between the sticks for City in what is an otherwise expected XI.

Fred starts for United

Manchester United XI vs Man City

It looks like like a 4-2-3-1 for United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Fernandes, Fred, Sancho; Rashford

Serious confidence shown!

Man United XI

Erik ten Hag has selected the following XI for today's final at Wembley.

Man City starting XI

Here's your City XI!

No FA Cup goals conceded

What about this for a stat?

Manchester City have not conceded a single goal in the FA Cup this season.

They're the first club to reach the final without conceding since Everton in the 1965-66 campaign.

FA Cup history

Manchester United have won the FA Cup 12 times and today sees them equal Arsenal's record for the most FA Cup finals played (21).

It's a glorious day in the capital.

Erik ten Hag: “They want to win a Cup and they have an opportunity”

United boss Erik ten Hag spoke ahead of today's final. 

“Yes I know (what the treble means to United fans). I know what is the thinking from the fans. 

“But what we want is to restore Manchester United by winning trophies so on Saturday we have an opportunity to win a trophy and we don’t want to be distracted by anything. If it is important for the fans it is important for us so we will give everything to win the Cup.

“It (being motivated by stopping City from winning the treble) is not necessary. It will not give more motivation for the team because for their motivation is already enough – it can’t be more. 

“They want to win a Cup and they have an opportunity.”

The Manchester derby in London

Kick-off is just over an hour away!

Treble-winning sides

This City team have already been compared to the United team of 1999. That United team won the treble under legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

City are, of course, on course to win a treble this season, but defeat today would end those hopes. 

Guardiola's men recently lifted their third consecutive Premier League title and they face Erik ten Hag's side today and Inter in the Champions League final next Saturday. 

It surely is the business end of the season.

Manchester sides meet again

Today is indeed the first time City and United have met in the FA Cup in 12 years. 

Last time out, City won 1-0 in the semi-final in 2011.

Who will start for City?

Manchester City duo Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne are fit for today's FA Cup final, according to the words of City boss Pep Guardiola.

Grealish and De Bruyne missed City’s final two Premier League games, with the Catalan tactician admitting several players were carrying “niggles”.

Defenders Manuel Akanji and Ruben Dias also missed 1-0 defeat to Brentford on the final day of the season.

Asked about De Bruyne and Grealish ahead of the final, Guardiola said: "They trained well in the last two training sessions".

We'll have the City XI for you very soon.

Today's venue: Wembley

Thousands of blues and reds will be making this walk today.

They've all travelled south to the capital with one eye on the famous old trophy.

FA Cup final time

It's time for the first-ever Manchester derby cup final!

What an occasion this will be today in London. We can't wait!
