Manchester City Beats Manchester United To Claim 7th FA Cup

Manchester City won the FA Cup title for the seventh time, thanks to a superb Ilkay Gundogan brace in the first-ever all-Manchester final.

After winning their third league title in a row two weeks ago, Pep Guardiola’s team has now won the Premier League and FA Cup this season.

City will now face Inter in the UEFA Champions League final on June 10 in Istanbul, as they will attempt to complete an historic treble.

Manchester City’s victory over Manchester United extends the record for the longest time between a club’s first FA Cup win and most recent – 119 years – with their first success in the competition coming in 1904.

Captain Gundogan describes it as “another proud moment in the history of the Club.”

“Everyone knows the FA Cup is the most beautiful domestic club competition in the world, so to win this trophy again and complete the Double is amazing for us,” he said.

“To win the Double in England is incredibly difficult and reflects all the hard work the players and staff have put in over the course of the season.

“I am so proud to captain this side – it is an honor to be part of this squad.

“Our focus now, however, is on resting, recovering and being fully prepared for next weekend’s Champions League final.

“We have a chance to do something special and win the Treble and we do not want to let this opportunity pass us by. I can promise our fans we will do everything we can to win in Istanbul.”
