Manchester City team news
Pep Guardiola rotated for Man City’s final game of the Premier League season, knowing the title was done and not wanting to take any risks ahead of their upcoming finals. However, some of the changes were forced as Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Manuel Akanji all sat out due to injuries. Guardiola was coy about their chances of making the FA Cup final, as he usually is, but there is optimism that the quartet will be okay.
Manchester United team news
Man Utd had some good news recently with Antony having a chance to return in time for the FA Cup final. The Brazilian had to be taken off on a stretcher in Man Utd’s 4-1 win over Chelsea last week and obvious fears were high over the severity, but Ten Hag appears optimistic. However, Marcel Sabitzer, Lisandro Martinez and Donny van de Beek are all still out for the remainder of the campaign.
