Manchester United ended a poor season on a huge high as the team secure a shock FA Cup final win against rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United upset Manchester City 2-1 in the final of the FA Cup, held at Wembley Stadium, London, England on Saturday.

In a match which most people expected to be a foregone conclusion, United showed their mettle by beating favourites and ending City’s hopes of becoming the first team in history to repeat as Premier League and the FA Cup winners in consecutive years.

By winning the FA Cup, United have received passage into next season’s Europa League.

Alejandro Garnacho put United ahead following a mix-up between City’s Josko Gvardiol and Stefan Ortega.

Fellow teenager, Kobbie Mainoo slotted in the second following a slick team move and an exquisite pass from United captain Bruno Fernandez.

Jeremy Doku scored for Manchester City in the later stages to set up a nervy ending to the match.

City looked the more threatening side in the manner in which they commanded possession and dominated the United end.

However, United were clinical with the precious few chances they were afforded to finish as victors.

With this victory United are now 13-time winners of the FA Cup, just one behind Arsenal with the most FA Cup titles by a single club.

The English season officially comes to a close with City just missing out on becoming the first English side to achieve consecutive doubles.
