It would now seem MAD to sack Erik ten Hag: OLIVER HOLT explains why this FA Cup final is different to Louis van Gaal's Wembley last hurrah

Manchester United upset the odds to stun rivals Manchester City and win the FA Cup for the 13th time with a performance of teenage kicks at Wembley.

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo scored in the first-half to thwart City's bid to win another league and cup Double.

Jeremy Doku's low strike four minutes from time set up a tense finale but United clung on.

Whether the win is enough to spare Erik ten Hag from the sack remains to be seen but the Dutch coach has delivered a second trophy in two seasons and ensured United made the Europa League.

Garnacho was left with a tap-in after 30 minutes after a mix-up between Josko Gvardiol and his keeper Stefan Ortega saw the ball drop perfectly for him just a few yards out.

Mainoo then swept home nine minutes later to culminate a neat move involving Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes.

City laid siege to United's goal after the break with Erling Haaland rattling the crossbar and Andre Onana pulling off a flying save to keep out Kyle Walker's rocket.

Onana might have done better, however, when Doku's effort crept in at his near post on 87 minutes.
