bet365 Football Betting Show: Manchester derby takes centre stage in FA Cup final

bet365's Sam Matterface and Steve Freeth look ahead to the second successive all-Manchester FA Cup final at Wembley.

Ten Hag's last throw of the dice?

After a dismal eighth-placed finish in the Premier League, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is under intense pressure ahead of the FA Cup final against rivals Manchester City.

With a new regime led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe responsible for sporting decisions at Old Trafford from now onwards, Ten Hag's job security is firmly on the line ahead of this weekend's Wembley showpiece.

United enter the final in indifferent form having won just three of their final 10 Premier League matches, with Pep Guardiola's City the hardest possible opponents in London.

Ten Hag's side are priced at 9/2 to Lift the Trophy.

City strive for Double

Just a week after securing a record fourth consecutive Premier League title after a 3-1 victory at home to West Ham on the final day, Man City will aim to become the first English side ever to win the Double in back-to-back seasons when they take on Man Utd in the FA Cup final.

In a repeat of last year's FA Cup final, which City won 2-1, Pep Guardiola's side will fancy their chances of similar success having last lost a domestic match back in December in a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

The Citizens are not always faultless when it comes to facing their neighbours, however, losing on five occasions in their last 14 meetings with United in all competitions.

City are given odds of 1/7 to Lift the Trophy at Wembley this weekend.
