Manchester City beats Manchester United 2-1

Manchester City’s pursuit of a triple of significant titles persisted on Saturday, as they emerged victorious over Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup final, with Ilkay Gundogan contributing the first of his two goals within an unprecedented 13 seconds.

Having already secured the UK Premier League, the sole remaining accomplishment for Pep Guardiola’s team to attain English football immortality is claiming their inaugural Champions League trophy.

Gundogan, serving as City’s captain, achieved the swiftest goal in an FA Cup final, timing at 12.91 seconds according to the British broadcaster BBC.

Nonetheless, United’s midfielder Bruno Fernandes swiftly equalized through a penalty kick in the 33rd minute, countering the flow of the game after Jack Grealish was deemed to have committed handball.

While Gundogan’s initial goal was undoubtedly his most remarkable for City, his winning strike in the 51st minute followed closely behind in terms of excellence.
