Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction & Betting Tips - FA Cup

 by Steve Ashfield | in FA Cup Prediction

There are differing emotions at present for the two Manchester clubs in the FA Cup final. For Manchester City, they are attempting to complete a Premier League and FA Cup double for the second season in a row. Meanwhile at Old Trafford, Manchester United know they have to win this match at Wembley if they want European football next season. This is a repeat of the 2022/23 FA Cup final that was won 2-1 by Manchester City. It's the first time since the 19th century that the same two clubs face each other in consecutive FA Cup finals and many expect another win for Pep Guardiola's side.

Manchester City - Manchester United: Form Analysis

Manchester City won their fourth consecutive Premier League title last Sunday. Now the Citizens bid to ensure the FA Cup remains in their trophy cabinet. It's been another hugely successful season for City with the European Super Cup and World Club Cup also having been won. City finished 31 points ahead of United in this season's Premier League and they are in outstanding form at present. Each of their last seven games has been won ith 21 goals scored and only two conceded. Over 90 minutes, the Blues have gone 35 games without a defeat and only a penalty shootout knocked them out of the Champions League. In this season's FA Cup, City have beaten four Premier League clubs (Tottenham, Luton, Newcastle and Chelsea) and only one of those games was played at the Etihad. 

Could this be the last match in charge of Manchester United for Erik ten Hag? It's looking likely and not even winning the FA Cup might save him. The Red Devils could only finish eighth in the Premier League this season and only winning the FA Cup will see them in European competition next term. They have won their last two matches with victories over Newcastle and Brighton but before that they'd gone three games without a win. Signing some new defenders in the summer will be important for the Red Devils. They've gone 12 games without keeping a clean sheet. It's been a tough route to Wembley at times for United. They had to go to extra time to beat Liverpool and so nearly lost to Coventry in the last four. We tip Manchester City to win this final in 90 minutes.

Manchester City & Manchester United Squad Analysis

Ederson is still out for Manchester City but was unlikely to play in this FA Cup final anyway. Stefan Ortega has been Pep Guardiola's goalkeeper throughout this run to the final. Nathan Ake and Mateo Kovacic were both subs against West Ham United last weekend and may again fill those spaces. Manchester United have injury doubts over Mason Mount and Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire definitely won't be playing. Anthony Martial is still recovering from his recent groin surgery.

Our Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction

Manchester United have reached this FA Cup final despite conceding three goals in both the quarter and semi-finals. Their defending leaves a lot to be desired and two games against City this season have both seen them concede three goals. City are on one of those long runs that always end with silverware heading in their direction. Over 90 minutes they are yet to lose a match this year and another league and cup double is on its way. Our main prediction for Manchester City v Manchester United is a win for Manchester City in 90 minutes.

Manchester City wins the match
