Erik ten Hag is expected to pick his final team at Manchester United, knowing that regardless of whether his unattractive side ruins the double hopes of neighbors City, he will deal with P45.

But the Dutchman has three permanent absences for the match at Wembley, while City manager Pep Guardiola will only be without goalkeeper Ederson, who could also be about to leave the club this summer.

Stefan Ortega will start between the posts for the Premier League champions, behind a back four of Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Manuel Akanji and Josko Gvardiol. In midfield, Rodri will play the holding role, behind a quarter of Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, player of the season Phil Foden and Jeremy Doku. Erling Haaland will, as expected, lead the line.

Meanwhile, United are without centre-half Harry Maguire, full-back Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia. But André Onana will surely start in goal with a four-man defense consisting of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the outgoing Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martínez and Diogo Dalot.

Casemiro may have endured a torrid few weeks in central midfield, but the Brazil international will join rising star Kobbie Mainoo in the middle. And ahead of them are expected to be Alejandro Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes and Amad Diallo. Rasmus Hojlund should start at centre-forward at the end of a mixed first campaign at Old Trafford.

City are heavy favorites to retain the Cup in a repeat of last year’s final, when Guardiola’s side won 2-1, with little risk of a lingering hangover despite a huge party to celebrate their fourth successive title. of the Premier League last Sunday.

United’s journey to this point has been a nightmare. Having finished mid-table in the league, Ten Hag will almost certainly be sacked after this match.

And captain Fernandes published a blog yesterday in which he demanded the club live up to its ambitions. In an open letter to fans, he said: “I love being at Old Trafford more than anything in the world. I do not want to go. This has always been my biggest dream.
