  • Manchester United upset Manchester City 2-1 in the final of the FA Cup, held at Wembley Stadium, London, England on Saturday
  • André Onana’s United are now 13-time winners of the FA Cup, just one behind Arsenal with the most FA Cup titles by a single club
  • United’s victory denies City’s hopes of becoming the first team in history to repeat as Premier League and the FA Cup winners in consecutive years


United scored two first-half goals in quick succession – the first from Alejandro Garnacho, the second from Kobbie Mainoo – to rattle the Premier League champion and make this the first men’s FA Cup final, according to statisticians Opta, with two teenage goalscorers.

United who took the early lead, capitalizing on a rare City mistake when a miscommunication between Josko Gvardiol and Stefan Ortega caused Gvardiol to head the ball over his goalkeeper, leaving Garnacho a clear path to tap the ball into the net.

Seven minutes later, United thought it had doubled its lead through Marcus Rashford though he was offside and the goal was disallowed, but they were back again after just two minutes to make sure it was 2-0.

Though City enjoyed a better second-half, creating several opportunities, a combination of brilliant goalkeeping from André Onana and the woodwork kept out the citizens most often than not.

Jeremy Doku scored in the 87th minute, halving United’s lead and setting up a frantic seven minutes of stoppage time.

Erling Haaland had an opportunity but struck the woodwork and Julián Álvarez pulled a shot wide of the goal before Doku scored.

However, United clung on to its hard-fought lead and its bench emptied onto the pitch after the final whistle to celebrate winning a trophy after an often miserable season for the historic club.

André Onana who lost the UEFA Champions League final against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City finally got the better of the manager who trained him at Barcelona’s La Masia.
