How to watch the FA Cup Final for free: Man City vs Man United live stream

How to watch Man City vs Man United in the FA Cup Final: A Manchester derby will decide the FA Cup Final for the first time with a lot more at stake for both clubs.

Sure, the FA Cup is great, but local pride is perhaps greater. Manchester United have extra motivation on top of getting their hands on the famous old trophy for a 13th time in 21 final appearances.

Firstly, denying City a 7th FA Cup triumph. Secondly, denying the ‘noisy neighbours’ a shot at matching United’s famous 1999 treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. Of course, United did it without the spectre of 115 pending charges of breaking the Premier League’s financial rules, but potatoes, pot-ah-toes.

City will go on to face Inter Milan in the Champions League final and are heavy favourites to finally get their hands on ol’ Big Ears next Saturday night. United will be hoping for more silverware following a solid season where they finished 3rd in the Premier League to gain a spot in the Champions League next season, while also picking up the EFL Cup.

Here’s how to watch Man City vs Man United in the FA Cup Final on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
