Manchester City will take on Manchester United in the FA Cup 2023 final on Saturday, June 3. The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
The stakes will be high when the two Manchester clubs meet in the FA Cup 2023 final at Wembley Stadium in London.
City has already won the Premier League this season and will be hoping to get the better of United in the FA Cup final in their bid to complete to treble.
United, on the other hand, will be desperate to stop City from completing the treble and get their hands on the FA Cup trophy in the process as they look to add to the Carabao Cup which they’ve already won in the 2022-23 campaign.
These two sides have squared off twice in the league in the past season with both teams winning their respective home fixture.
City battered United 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium last year, while the Red Devils came from behind to beat their local rivals 2-1 at Old Trafford earlier this year.
Both teams will fancy their chances of a win come Saturday and will pin their hopes on their stars to stand up and deliver.
City will hope Erling Haaland, who won the Premier League Golden Boot, can batter United’s defence as he did while scoring a hat-trick against the Red Devils in the 6-3 win.
The Premier League champions also have stars like Keven De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, Jack Grealish, and Riyad Mahrez to turn to.
United, meanwhile, will need the likes of their top-scorer this season with 30 goals, Marcus Rashford to deliver on the big stage.
Rashford along with skipper Bruno Fernandes as well as the likes of Jadon Sancho and Antony will need to be on top of their game if they hope to win.
As far as the head-to-head in this fixture is concerned, United leads City with 78 wins from 189 games. City has won 58 times while 53 matches have ended in draws.
The two local rivals have met nine times in the FA Cup in the past with United winning six of those encounters while City has three triumphs.
