Manchester United have won the FA Cup after beating rivals Manchester City 2-1 in the final at Wembley

Alejandro Garnacho put the Red Devils ahead with a close-range effort in the 30th minute after a mix-up between City defender Josko Gvardiol and goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

Kobbie Mainoo then doubled United’s lead nine minutes later with a clinical finish.

United had a goal disallowed just before that when Marcus Rashford slotted home but Garnacho was judged to be offside.

Jeremy Doku pulled a goal back for City late in the second half but United clung on to secure victory and avenge their defeat in last season’s FA Cup final.

The win means that the team, which finished eighth in the Premier League this season and 31 points behind champions City, have secured a place in the Europa League.

And the win comes amid speculation that United manager Erik ten Hag is set to be sacked after a disappointing domestic league campaign.

If United had lost the final, they would not have been in Europe at all next season.

After the victory, some United players dropped to their knees in celebration on the pitch, while others sprinted towards them from the technical area.

And a beaming Ten Hag got a congratulatory hug from City manager Pep Guardiola.
