Two quick fire goals in the first half by teenagers Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Manno helped Manchester United exert perfect revenge of their FA Cup final defeat last season with the exact 2-1 scoreline after Manchester City pulled one back late through substitute Jérémy Doku. United's manager Erik ten Hag won back-to-back cup final in his potentially last game in charge with the club. 


The Red Devils took the lead in the match from Joško Gvardiol error in heading back to his committed goalkeeper Stefan Ortega which flew over him and giving Garnacho an open net to score on the hour mark. Only minutes later, before City could recover from the blow, United doubled the lead with Manno resting the ball in the net from a fine pass by Bruno Fernandes. 


Guardiola's side tried to stage a comeback in the second half with Doku providing energy to the side. Five minutes after restart, the winger's pass found Erling Haaland whose shot cannoned off the crossbar. City got two more chances to score with Kyle Walker testing Andre Onana from range and Phil Foden dragging it wide of the post in one-v-one situation. Eventually, the side got a goal back but it amounted to nothing.
