Manchester United Triumph Over Manchester City to Win FA Cup

Manchester United secured a sensational 2-1 victory over their rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium. The Red Devils, who generated 1.53 expected goals (xG) throughout the match, opened the scoring in the first half after a costly error from Josko Gvardiol. Alejandro Garnacho capitalized on a loose header, firing into an empty net.

United doubled their lead later in the half when Bruno Fernandes found Kobbie Mainoo with a clever reversed pass, and the young midfielder slotted the ball into the bottom corner from inside the penalty area.

After the break, Pep Guardiola's side dominated possession but struggled to break down United's defense. Their efforts finally paid off late in the game when Jeremy Doku, who came off the bench at halftime, drifted in from the left and fired a shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Despite City's late onslaught, producing 1.31 xG, Erik ten Hag's men held on to their lead, ending the season on a high with the FA Cup trophy. It was a fantastic performance from United, who thoroughly deserved their victory at Wembley.

Congratulations to Manchester United for their outstanding achievement!
