Man Utd stun Man City to win FA Cup final

Manchester United pulled off a stunning 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

United opened the scoring after Alejandro Garnacho capitalised on a mix-up between Stefan Ortega and Josko Gvardiol and fired into an empty net.

Kobbie Mainoo doubled their lead, finishing touch to a superb team move. Meanwhile, André Onana was forced into just a single save.

City fought back in the second half and ensured a nervy ending when Onana’s weak attempt at a save on 87 minutes could not keep out Jérémy Doku’s shot at the goalkeeper’s near post. However, United held on and sealed a memorable victory.

This year’s FA Cup title is the second trophy of Erik ten Hag’s two-year tenure in charge at United, but it comes amid intense speculation over his future, with potential replacements already sounded out by the club.

It is United’s 13th FA Cup title, one behind Arsenal’s record of 14. The result also secures United a place in the Europa League next season.
