What time is the FA Cup final? Man United vs. Man City live stream, TV channel, kickoff schedule | Sporting News United Kingdom

Manchester United will lock horns with the recently crowned English champions Manchester City at Wembley this weekend in the FA Cup final. 

Manchester City are aiming for an unprecedented back-to-back double. Pep Guardiola’s dominant squad shows no signs of slowing down, with Phil Foden emerging as the Premier League’s best player this season.

For Manchester United, victory is crucial to secure European qualification following their disappointing eighth-place finish in the Premier League.

Manager Erik ten Hag faces mounting pressure, with his job on the line amid potential summer changes led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe. Winning the FA Cup would provide a significant morale boost for the team and its supporters at Old Trafford.

The Sporting News looks at the time of the match and how to watch the FA Cup final unfold.
