Training Gallery: Man City put together final preparations ahead of Manchester United FA Cup Final showdown



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have put together their final preparations for Saturday’s huge Emirates FA Cup Final clash against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s side have the opportunity to become the first club to win the Premier League and Emirates FA Cup back-to-back, after clinching a record-breaking fourth consecutive title with a win over West Ham at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

An all-Manchester FA Cup Final will take place for the second successive season, with Manchester City having beaten Manchester United at Wembley Stadium last year, after Ilkay Gundogan’s historic brace during a 2-1 win.

The Sky Blues have beaten Erik ten Hag’s side in both Premier League meetings this season, with Phil Foden and Erling Haaland scoring during a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium in March and a 0-3 win at Old Trafford in October.

Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in their past 35 matches across all competitions, and returned to training at the City Football Academy on Wednesday, following a weekend of Premier League title celebrations.

Ederson is City’s only absentee for the clash against Manchester United, although Saturday’s FA Cup Final could be the last match of some players’ careers, with several first-team squad members linked with potential summer exits from the Etihad Stadium.

Saturday’s fixture will be the Blues’ 59th and final match of the 2023/24 campaign, with Manchester City having also lifted the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup alongside a sixth Premier League title in seven years.
