FA Cup: Guardiola reveals who to blame for defeat to Man Utd in final

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he is to blame for their FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United.

Guardiola admits he got his game-plan wrong against United.

United won 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday thanks to goals from teenagers Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo.

City missed a number of chances in the second half before Jérémy Doku pulled a late goal back, but Guardiola insisted afterwards the defeat was his fault.

“For my decisions, we were not in the right positions to attack them,” Guardiola told a news conference.

“My mistake. My game plan was not good. Tactically, it was not good. I was not good, today.”

After going 2-0 down in the first-half, Guardiola made changes at half-time by bringing on Doku and Manuel Akanji. Julián Álvarez was also introduced early in the second half at the expense of Kevin De Bruyne.
