Manchester United creates a sensation in the Cup final

Against all expectations, Manchester United won the FA Cup by defeating their rival Manchester United (2-1).

A real earthquake occurred this Sunday in the legendary Wembley grounds. The FA Cup final, promised to Manchester City, finally turned to the advantage of United’s rival. The Red Devils have indeed outdone themselves to deprive their sworn enemy of a second consecration in a row in this competition.

United took City by the throat

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Defeated last year by Guardiola’s gang at the same stage of the event, United’s men took the tastiest revenge. And there will be no one to cry foul since their success is well deserved. The first period they delivered was even close to perfection.

By overshadowing the hyper negative context that existed before the match, United put themselves in the best predisposition to create an exploit. He put in the right ingredients and was also entitled to a boost from the opposition since it was an error from the City defense which allowed them to open the scoring. A disagreement between Gvardiol and Ortega which was profitable for Alejandro Garnacho (30e).

At 1-0, Mu didn’t just defend. Playing without complexes, he continued to put pressure on a beleaguered Citizen defense. And it is logical that Erik Ten Hag’s men managed to take shelter at the 39e minute. Young Kobbie Mainoo found himself at the conclusion of a marvel of collective action, with a quick ball recovery and a sublime assist from Bruno Fernandes.

MU closes in on Arsenal record

Groggy by this break goal, City was only able to react after returning from the locker room. A predictable start which led to a multitude of alerts on the goals kept by André Onana. However, this was without result. The Cameroon goalkeeper diverted an attempt from Walker (60e), as for Haaland (60e) and Alvarez (65e) they missed the mark in very advantageous situations. It’s only at 87e minute that Doku ended up reducing the score for City with a heavy strike but it was almost too late to hope to snatch extra time.

City saved the honor but let the trophy slip away when they had the chance to win it for 8e times. Which would have put him on par with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham. Instead, it is rather MU which enriches its list of achievements. He now has 13 Cups to his name, one shy of Arsenal’s record.
