FA Cup final: Date and kick-off time as Man City take on Man United at Wembley
Manchester United will look to put a halt to rivals Man City’s charge to replicate their iconic treble in the FA Cup Final next month.
The Red Devils are looking to secure their second piece of silverware in Erik ten Hag’s first season but an additional priority will be preventing their neighbours having the chance to equal their 1999 triumph.
Pep Guardiola’s City have already lifted the Premier League title and remain in contention for both the Champions League and FA Cup as well.
The current FA Cup holders are Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool but the Reds were knocked out by Brighton in round four.
And we are now left with Man City and Man United.
City easily dispatched Sheffield United 3-0 in the last four, while the Red Devils overcame Brighton 7-6 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in the other semi-final.

Man City vs Man United: What has been said?
City boss Guardiola: “I start to think about the Treble if we are able to go to Istanbul [host city of the Champions League final] with two titles in the pocket, then I will concede if we win one more title we do it.
“Look at United, it was once in a lifetime in the UK and the way they won the Camp Nou against Bayern Munich, I was there.
“It is so difficult to do it, the last two finals we have will be terribly complicated.
“I know United want to avoid it and Inter Milan is Inter Milan, so step by step.”
United manager Ten Hag on the prospect of beating City: “We will give everything and when I say everything, that is everything, more than 100 percent you can’t do, the fans can rely on that. We want to give that against City, we want to give the fans that.
“I understand, of course, the feelings from the fans about it.
“We will do everything to give them the second trophy – everything what I have, everything the team has, the staff have, we will give everything to get it done.
“We can do it, because we prove it. It’s not easy though, it’s a great team, but we also have a great team.”
