Manchester City face a stern test in their next step towards the treble as they meet rivals Manchester United in the 2023 FA Cup final.
Pep Guardiola’s side won the Premier League and are in the Champions League final, where they will face Inter Milan. The Citizens have won a domestic treble before, but they have never won Europe’s elite club competition.

Erik ten Hag could also win a domestic double after securing the Carabao Cup back in February. It has not been an easy debut season for the Dutch manager, but a return to the Champions League along with two trophies would certainly be a success, and stopping City from matching United’s treble feat of 1999 would make him even more popular among fans.

Man City vs Man United FA Cup final lineups, team news
Guardiola’s side will have one week between this fixture and their Champions League final. He is expected to put out a strong side but perhaps bench any players with small injury concerns.
Manuel Akanji missed City’s last two Premier League matches due to injury but returned to training alongside Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Jack Grealish this week. Guardiola confirmed regular domestic cup goalkeeper Stefan Ortega will start ahead of Ederson.
Man City predicted lineup (3-2-4-1): Ortega (GK) — Walker, Dias, Ake — Stones, Rodri — Silva, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish — Haaland
This is the Red Devils’ last game of the season, meaning Ten Hag is likely to risk more players who might have a slight niggle. Antony is a major doubt after missing their league game with Fulham due to an ankle injury. Anthony Martial is out with a hamstring problem.
Marcel Sabitzer, Donny van de Beek, and Lisandro Martinez remain out of action. Phil Jones will be unable to take part in what would have been his final United game before leaving the club.
Man United predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Varane, Shaw — Casemiro, Eriksen — Fernandes, Weghorst, Sancho — Rashford
Man City vs Man United FA Cup final prediction, odds
As expected, Man City are the bookmakers’ clear favourites to win the FA Cup final. Both Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored hat-tricks against Man United earlier in the season, but the Red Devils also won 2-1 at Old Trafford.
