Amad and Amrabat start: Manchester United XI vs Man City prediction for the FA Cup final

Manchester United will be serious underdogs in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Manchester City in what is a repeat of last year’s grand final.

Erik ten Hag travels to Wembley without many players to add to the fight. Tyrell Malacia is still recovering from his long-term knee injury, while Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire will also miss the match.




Meanwhile, Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof and Anthony Martial face late physical tests. The trio have been struggling in recent months but were spotted again in Carrington this week. It’s unclear how close they are to reaching the final.

There is a real chance that Ten Hag will name the same United line-up that beat Brighton, in what seemed like a silly move from their tactics for the final. Andre Onana has only missed one game all season and will make his 51st appearance of the campaign this weekend.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is likely to play his last game for the club, is likely to start at right-back and Diogo Dalot, goalscorer against Brighton, is likely to start on the left with Shaw and Malacia still unavailable.

Lisandro Martínez missed last year’s final due to injury and will be eager to play this time. He is likely to start, while Casemiro’s inclusion should only be as a centre-back given his weak performances in midfield in recent weeks.
