Manchester City beat United to win FA Cup

FA Cup: Manchester City beat United

Manchester City beat city rivals, Manchester United 2-1 at Wembley Stadium to win the FA Cup on Saturday.

Ilkay Gundogan was City’s hero as he scored both goals. Bruno Fernandes scored from the penalty spot to level the scores in the first half before Gundogan scored the winner in the 51st minute.

Gundogan also set a record after scoring the fastest FA Cup final goal in the 13th second, beating Luois Saha’s 25th-second strike for Everton against Chelsea in 2009.

Manchester United equalised after 33 minutes when the video assistant referee ruled that Jack Grealish had handled, Bruno Fernandes coolly sending Stefan Ortega the wrong way from the spot.

Manchester City remain on course for the Treble after their victory. They will complete the feat if they beat Inter Milan in the final of the UEFA Champions League in Istanbul next Saturday.
