Where And When Is The FA Cup Final?
Date: Saturday, Jun 3, 2023
Time: 3pm (GMT)
Location: Wembley Stadium, London, England
Man City v Man United
Wembley will be a furious clash of blue and red as Manchester descend into north-west London for the climax of the domestic season. United were duly beaten 6-3 in the first meeting of the two sides at the Etihad, yet City were on the receiving end of revenge at Old Trafford as the Red Devils came back from one down to win 2-1 in January.
Despite trailing Arsenal for the vast majority of the season, Pep Guardiola’s men gathered steam at devastating pace at the right time of the season to clinch the first part of what could be an historic treble. The Spaniard has won just one FA Cup during his trophy-laden spell in M11, a 6-0 drubbing of Watford in 2019, which was the sixth in the club’s illustrious history.
With the Champions League final against Inter Milan set for June 10th, City are just two victories away from matching the incredible 1999 team built by Sir Alex Ferguson in winning three major titles.
As if winning a first FA Cup trophy since 2016 wasn’t enough of an incentive, the desire to halt the relentless winning machine across the A57 from will surely motivate Erik ten Hag’s men even further. The former Ajax manager ended United’s six-year drought for a trophy by beating Newcastle to win the Carabao Cup back in February, whilst also taking the club back to the Champions League.
The Red Devils have a real love affair with the FA Cup, having lifted it 12 times in their history which is just second in history behind Arsenal (14).

Managers Have Spoken
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City: "I start to think about the Treble if we are able to go to Istanbul [host city of the Champions League final] with two titles in the pocket, then I will concede if we win one more title we do it.
"Look at United, it was once in a lifetime in the UK and the way they won the Camp Nou against Bayern Munich, I was there.
"It is so difficult to do it, the last two finals we have will be terribly complicated.
"I know United want to avoid it and Inter Milan is Inter Milan, so step by step."
Erik ten Hag, Manchester United: “We will give everything and when I say everything, that is everything, more than 100 percent you can’t do, the fans can rely on that. We want to give that against City, we want to give the fans that.
“I understand, of course, the feelings from the fans about it.
"We will do everything to give them the second trophy – everything what I have, everything the team has, the staff have, we will give everything to get it done.
"We can do it, because we prove it. It’s not easy though, it’s a great team, but we also have a great team.”
