Manchester City face a tough test in their next push for the treble when they face rivals Manchester United in the 2023 FA Cup final.

Erik ten Hag is looking for his second piece of silverware in his debut season at Manchester United after sealing the Carabao Cup earlier this year before coming third in the Premier League.

On Saturday they will be tasked with stopping Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City as they target the next step in a potential treble alongside their title triumph before the UEFA Champions League final against Inter.

Man Utd team news

Red Devils boss Ten Hag will give an update on winger Antony on Friday, with the Brazilian at risk of missing out on the final after going off on a stretcher in the first half of the 4-1 win over Chelsea.

If the Brazilian is out, there will likely be a start for one of Alejandro Garnacho or Wout Weghorst due to the absences in attack.

The perennially injured Anthony Martial has been ruled out of the contest with a hamstring problem, while Marcel Sabitzer looks to have played his last game for United due to a knee complaint. The likes of Lisandro Martinez and Donny van de Beek are also absent.

Man City team news

Pep Guardiola unsurprisingly rang the changes for City‘s final league game of the season at Brentford, which they lost 1-0 due to a late Ethan Pinnock strike.

Expect players like Erling Haaland, Ruben Dias, Ilkay Gundogan and Jack Grealish among others to come back into the side having missed that defeat last time out.

Man Utd predicted lineup vs Man City (4-2-3-1):

De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Sancho, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford.

Man City predicted lineup vs Man Utd (3-2-4-1):
