Man City win FA Cup 2023 (Sports News) – In what could possibly be the biggest Manchester derby ever, Manchester City defeated Manchester United to lift their 7th FA Cup and first since 2019.

Man City win FA Cup – Match Recap

The game was opened by the fastest goal ever scored in the competition, coming in on 11 seconds by Gundogan. City keeper Stefan Ortega‘s long kick went toward Erling Haaland, who then flicked it towards Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian then found the German midfielder who struck it towards the back of the net before Man Utd’s defence could assemble.

On 33 minutes, the Red Devils got an opportunity when Jack Grealish was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty are. Bruno Fernandes then levelled from the spot to make it 1-1 at the half.

However, City would not be kept down as Gundogan fired them ahead with another volley. He almost had a hat-trick, but his third goal was ruled offside The score held till the end, thwarting Erik ten Hag‘s attempt at a domestic double, while the Cityzens completed one of their own.

Man City win FA Cup – Managers’ Statements

Despite the heartbreaking loss, Ten Hag still praised his men, including keeper David De Gea, for a turnaround season after the last miserable one under former manager Ralf Rangnick.

“At this moment, I don’t want to talk about such issues of criticism because we all played a great season – including David de Gea, he played a fantastic season,” said the Man Utd boss. “If you consider that City [and United], before today, both had 42 wins and now they have one more win. So the difference was made today and you can tell we played a fantastic season and that is more than we could have expected than before.”

“We were third in the league, we qualified for the Champions League, we won a trophy and we were in another final, so I am really happy with the performance of my team all over,” continued the Dutchman.

Man City win FA Cup – One Win Away from Historic Treble

Guardiola, meanwhile, could not hide his excitement with the win, which brings them closer to equalling the feat their arch rivals accomplished in 1998/99. This weekend, Man City face Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League final, wherein they will try to win Europe’s biggest club prize after falling short to Chelsea in the 2020/21 final.

“One more to go – they feel we are in a position that we will probably never be in again,” the City boss said of his players. “We will have two days off and then after we have three or four training sessions, prepare for [Inter] Milan, then go there to try.”

“Now is the first time I can talk about [the treble] because it is one game away,” the Spaniard continued. “But it is not about the treble, it is about winning the Champions League. Everything will not be complete if we don’t win the Champions League so we have to do it. I said to the players you have to put the pressure on yourself to be recognised as something good – so you have to win Europe. We are one game away.”
