2023/24 FA Cup
Manchester City v Manchester United
Wembley Stadium
London, England
Sunday, 25 May 2024
Kick-off is at 16h00 
Neighbours Manchester City and Manchester United will battle it out for the coveted FA Cup trophy for the second time in two years at Wembley on Sunday, May 25.
The Citizens are bidding to complete a domestic double after they won a fourth consecutive Premier League title this season, having pipped Arsenal to top spot by two points on the final day.
Pep Guardiola's side beat the Red Devils 2-1 in last season's final to lift the famous piece of silverware for the seventh time in their history, although they're some way off of the 12 final wins achieved by their city rivals.
City made short work of Huddersfield (5-0) in the third round and they overcame fellow top-flight clubs Tottenham (1-0), Luton (6-2), Newcastle (2-0) and Chelsea (1-0) to set up a re-match with United.

Guardiola is looking to make more history as the first team to defend both the Premier League and FA Cup crowns in a single season.
"We have won four [Premier League titles] in a row. What next? The FA Cup," the Spaniard declared. "No team has won back-to-back FA Cup and Premier League doubles.
"Next season I don't know what the motivation will be to do it because it's difficult to find sometimes. Once we're there, why should we not win today? I know we are going to do it."
United are hoping to give their fans some cheer following a disappointing campaign which saw them record their worst-ever finish of eighth in the Premier League era.
Erik ten Hag had to deal with a horrendous injury crisis throughout the season that robbed him of his first-choice back-four for much of the time.
In fact, he had different combinations in defence for each FA Cup outing against Wigan, Newport County, Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and Coventry.

However, Ten Hag could have most of his first team available for the 193rd Manchester derby in the capital and has welcomed the selection poser.
"It is not a dilemma, it is a luxury problem," the Dutchman said after his side ran out 2-0 victors over Brighton at the Amex on the final day.
"I think both formations can be a success because, as you know, we can play like the set-up at the Etihad [with Bruno Fernandes as a 'false nine'], where we were a threat with the movement in behind.
"With Rasmus Hojlund in behind and his form, it is absolutely a consideration what we have to consider and have to take. Let's have a thought but let's not say we only need 11 players. In a tough final, you need a bench as well."
