Erik ten Hag has more injury concerns heading into the final than Pep Guardiola.
The Red Devils have already collected silverware at the home of football this season when they beat Newcastle United 2-0 in February’s Carabao Cup final, while City wrapped up the Premier League with relative comfort last month.
Pep Guardiola’s men are also aiming to win the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League for just the second time in the history of English football. The only side to previously achieve that feat, of course, were Alex Ferguson’s United in 1999, meaning Ten Hag’s men are playing for the chance to preserve a unique piece of history this weekend.
In the build-up to the game, both managers have held press conferences this week and were asked for the latest team news. For Ten Hag, he gave an update on Antony and Anthony Martial, while there are three other players who have been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.
City don’t quite have the same headaches as they hunt down the elusive treble, although several players sat out last weekend’s loss to Brentford with minor knocks. Speaking on Friday, Guardiola confirmed that all four players who were absent at the Gtech Community Stadium will be back in time for this weekend’s trip to the capital.
