Man Utd stun Man City to win the FA Cup

2024/05/25 17:06

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo were the heroes as Manchester United edged past local rivals Manchester City with a 2-1 victory at Wembley, clinching the 2024 FA Cup title.

The game's dynamic was quickly established with Man City controlling possession while Man Utd maintained a compact defensive shape. 

Despite City's dominance, it was the Red Devils who took a surprising lead in the 30th minute. 

A defensive error from the Citizens saw Josko Gvardiol inadvertently nod the ball over Stefan Ortega from a long clearance, allowing Garnacho to calmly slot the ball into an empty net with Ortega stranded.

Within less than ten minutes, the Red Devils doubled their lead, stunning an disorganised Man City. 

Garnacho deliveed a pinpoint pass to Bruno Fernandes in the box, whose precise delivery found Mainoo unmarked, curling the ball home from close range.

Pep Guardiola's men came close to pulling one back early in the second half, with Haaland striking the crossbar after connecting with Jeremy Doku's pass.

Kyle Walker then tested Andre Onana with a powerful long-range effort, but the Man Utd goalkeeper was equal to the challenge, deflecting the shot away with a strong save.

Just when it seemed the hopes of Man City fans were fading, Doku reignited them in the 87th minute. 

The winger cut inside and unleashed a shot towards Onana's near post, with the Cameroonian unable to prevent what should have been a relatively routine save.

However, despite the late resurgence, it wasn't enough for the Premier League champions, as United held firm to avenge their defeat in last year's final.

Big Picture: After missing out on a European spot through the league, this victory secured United's place in next season's Europa League.

As a result, Chelsea will play in the Europa Conference League, and Newcastle United have been denied any form of continental football.

Man Utd's win also confirms their place in next season's Community Shield, where they will face their city rivals Manchester City again at Wembley on August 10.

As a die-hard Manchester United fan, I cannot express my gratitude enough to Garnacho and Mainoo for their heroic performance in bringing home the 2024 FA Cup title against our local rivals Manchester City. The game was intense, with City dominating possession, but our team's compact defensive shape proved to be the key to victory. And that first goal - what a defensive error from City, and what a brilliant finish from Garnacho! And let's not forget about Mainoo's goal, perfectly
