Pep Guardiola’s men defeated the Red Devils 2:1 in the 2023 English FA Cup final to show their superiority and stamp their authority with IIkay Gündogan bagging a brace.
This is Man City’s 2nd trophy of the season with the aim of making it a treble ahead of the UEFA champions league final against Inter Milan.
Man United were a shadow of themselves, even after Bruno Farnandez equalizes IIkay Gündogan’s goal from the spot. Gundogan’s goal was the fastest goal in the history of FA Cup finals, 12seconds in the first half.
As Pep side kept on pressing until they took the lead again by same IIkay Gündogan in the second half to seal the fate of their opponent. The match was just a bit above average because there were no special moments to leave the fans excited.
Man United have got some restructuring to do in the coming season if they must do well in the league and at the same time prosecute the UEFA Champions league.
