It all goes down at Wembley stadium. For one team, it’s an opportunity to create history by winning the domestic treble, for the other, its a rare opportunity to end the season on a high by winning football’s oldest club trophy, THE FA CUP.
Premier League champions Manchester City come up against Watford in the 138th #EmiratesFACupfinal on Saturday.
Its a classic heavyweight vs under dog battle.
City are five time winners of the FA Cup, but have not lifted the trophy since 2011, when they beat Stoke under Mancini.
They are favourites to defeat the Hornet to pick up a third piece of silverware this season, so can Watford do anything to stop them?
This is Watford’s first FA Cup final appearance since 1984, when they lost to Everton.
It is hard to pinpoint holes in Pep Guardiola’s City side, however,
City needed penalty shootout to win the Carabao cup final against Chelsea this season, had to come from 2-0 down to win at Swansea in this competition and only edged out Brighton 1-0 in the semis, and got knocked out of the #UCL by Spurs.
Teams like Crystal Palace have also gotten wins over Manchester City this season, so why not Watford?
Watford will certainly be brimming with confidence following their historic win over Wolves in the Semi Final as they came back from 2-0 down to secure a memorable 3-2 win over a side that knocked out Liverpool and Manchester United.
Without an iota of doubt, City are a class apart here and Watford’s open style looks tailor-made for them.
Man City have scored 2️0️goals in the #EmiratesFACup this season. The most by a team in a single season in the competition since Chelsea in 2011-12.
Head-to-head: Man City 3-1 Watford, Watford 1-2 Man City, Man City 3-1 Watford, Watford 0-6 Man City, Watford 0-5 Man City, Man City 2-0 Watford.
With this head-to-head, it shows that it will be difficult for Watford to beat Manchester City, but in football anything can happen.
The last time Watford and Manchester City went head-to-head in an #FACup tie was in 2014 Watford lead 2-0 into half-time.
Then up stepped Aguero as the Argentine scored a second-half hat-trick to make it Man City 4-2 WatfordFC.
Manchester City are on a run of 14 consecutive wins.
They did the double over Watford in the league this season – winning 3-1 at home and 2-1 away, can Watord get revenge in the FA Cup final?
