On Saturday, a colossal clash between fierce cross-city rivals Manchester United and Manchester City will commence beneath the iconic Wembley arch, with the oldest prize in football up for grabs. Man Utd came from behind and recorded a 2-1 home victory against Fulham in their last Premier League outing, securing a Champions League spot and concluding a solid league campaign with their fourth consecutive win after a disappointing stretch of back-to-back defeats in early May.
It is likely that Erik ten Hag will choose the reliable 4-2-3-1 formation and is anticipated to field a formidable starting XI for the upcoming FA Cup final. Marcus Rashford will lead the line up front while Alejandro Garnacho and Jadon Sancho provide support from the wide areas.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted XI Vs Manchester City
David de Gea will operate in goal for the Red Devils as he looks to keep a clean sheet at the Webley Stadium. Victor Lindelof will partner up with Raphael Varane at the centre of Man United’s backline as they try to keep the Sky Blues quiet throughout the game.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be a nailed-on starter at right-back, while Luke Shaw looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every opportunity they get.
Harry Maguire will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Christian Eriksen will anchor the midfield with Casemiro as they focus on dominating possession at the centre of the park.
The gifted trio of Alejandro Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho will operate just ahead of them as part of ten Hag’s attack. Fernandes will once again carry most of the creative workload for the Red Devils in the opponent’s half.
Scott McTominay and Fred will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Marcus Rashford will spearhead Man United’s attack on his own up top. The English forward has to find a way to threaten City’s goal if Man United want to lift the trophy this weekend.
Wout Weghorst will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter of the contest if the home team are in need of a goal by then.
