Manchester City’s quest to win a treble this season received a major boost after defeating Manchester United 2-1 to lift the FA Cup at Wembley.
City are attempting to equal United’s treble-winning campaign of 1999 this season, with the Premier League title and FA Cup secured and the Champions League final to come next week.
Goals from Gundogan either side of the break were enough for the team in sky blue, with Fernandes dispatching a penalty for his team in the first-half.
Manchester City took the lead inside 12 seconds of the encounter, when goalie, Stefan Ortega sent a long ball to Erling Haaland who passed to De Bruyne who then set up Ilkay Gundogan for City’s first goal of the final.
Gundogan made history in the process as the fastest-ever goal in an FA Cup final.
Manchester United equalized in the 33rd minute, Bruno Fernandes sent Stefan Ordega the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Upon resumption of the second half of the encounter, City won a free kick over on the right wing where Kevin De Bruyne sent a cross to the edge of the box.
Ilkay Gundogan again lashes to a loose ball and volleys the ball wide of David De Gea to put the Citizens ahead once again.
The match ended 2-1 in favour of City.
The result meant Manchester City join Arsenal, Manchester United as clubs who have won the double, Premier League and the FA Cup in the same season.
