Manchester United book a date with Man City in FA Cup final

Manchester United win against Brighton in the FA Cup

Manchester United knocked out Brighton to book a date with arch rival Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup final.

The 12-time winners of the prestigious cup needed post-match penalties to eliminate Brighton & Hove Albion at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.


The two sides battled it to a goalless draw in normal time with the David de Gea and Robert Sanchez between the sticks for Brighton shining brightest for either side before the spot kicks that saw Swedish defender Victor Lindelof hold United’s fate with the final kick of the evening.

A minute earlier Solly March had fired his opportunity wildly over the bar before Lindelof converted to guarantee Erik ten Hag’s return to Wembley Stadium on June 3rd when the final will be played.

This will be Ten Hag’s second domestic cup final in his debut season having already guided the Red Devils to a Carabao Cup victory when they beat Newcastle at the same venue by 2-0.


Meanwhile, on Saturday, Manchester City thumped Sheffield United by 3-0 to book their spot in the final.

Riyad Mahrez scored a hattrick to send Pep Guardiola’s side into the final on their course to win a treble this season. City are into the semi finals of the UEFA Champions League and will face Real Madrid while remaining on Arsenal’s heels in the pursuit of their third consecutive Premier League title.
