Manchester United and Manchester City are set to lock horns in the FA Cup final on 3 June 2023 with both Mancunian sides hoping to get the better of each other at the top of the English football pyramid.
Man City have won the FA Cup six times in their history compared to Man United‘s 12 wins. However, they are yet to face off against each other in a major cup final with this match on June 3 marking their first-ever final meeting in the FA Cup which remains the oldest football cup competition in the world.
Have Manchester United Ever Faced Manchester City In A Major Cup Final?
No. Manchester United and Manchester City have never played each other in a cup final before. As mentioned earlier, the 2022-23 FA Cup final match will be their first meeting in a major cup final.
Man United and Man City have played 189 matches across all competitions thus far with the Red Devils winning 78, drawing 53 and losing 58 of those games. The two Manchester clubs have won a combined total of 96 major honours in history.
Man United have won 67 trophies to Man City’s 29 (via transfermarkt). However, the Red Devils have seen their local rivals dominate English football over the last decade.
Erik ten Hag managed to lead Man United to a Carabao Cup win in the 2022-23 campaign after the Mancunian club went seven years without winning a major trophy.
Thus, we can expect a lot to ride in this upcoming FA Cup final clash when the two Manchester clubs clash heads for the first time in a major competitive cup final. May the best team win!
