The FA Cup final is here again and we have a repeat set of finalists as Man City take on Man United for the second successive year.

Last year’s Manchester derby FA Cup final looked to be a once-in-a-lifetime event, being the first time the two sides had met in the final of the competition, however, we are here once again just one year later.

It took just 13 seconds for the scoring to be opened last year, and Man City will be hoping for a similarly explosive start as they look to become the first side to complete a league and FA Cup double in successive seasons in English football history, just days after becoming the first side to win four consecutive league titles.

United meanwhile will be hoping to spoil the party of their neighbours, to secure qualification for the Europa League and bag the second trophy of Erik ten Hag’s campaign after what was a largely disappointing season that saw them finish eighth in the Premier League.

It should be a fantastic occasion, and a great game for a smart bet builder, so those of you joining us for a Man City vs Man United bet builder can rest assured that we have a selection of the best value betting tips from a range of markets ahead of this one.

Man City vs Man United Predicted Lineups

No need to fix what isn’t broken for Pep Guardiola

Guardiola is unlikely to shift away from the starting 11 that comfortably saw off West Ham on the final day of the Premier League campaign, especially seeing as there is nothing for him to rest or rotate in preparation for. This means Jeremy Doku continues down the left and Bernardo Silva is onthe right side, to make space for Phil Foden to continue to play a more central role, which he has excelled in.

Ten Hag to continue with his 4-2-2-2

Ten Hag looks set to continue with the experimental 4-2-2-2 that he deployed at Brighton last time out. That did not go especially well for the Red Devils, with the goals only coming once they abandoned the shape, but with the personnel available it may make the most sense here. This means Casemiro will again be deployed at centre-back, with a rare start for Sofyan Amrabat alongside Kobbie Mainoo, while Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes combine up front to form a fluid strike partnership that can also drop into midfield as required. Amad Diallo is also likely to start once again, keeping Marcus Rashford out of the side as Alejandro Garnacho is preferred on the left.

Man City vs Man United Team Stats

City likely to dominate the corners

Only Liverpool took more corners in the Premier League than Man City this season, the Reds notching 287 to City’s 286. That works out to an average of 7.53 corners per game for Pep Guardiola’s side, whilst United’s 7.34 corners conceded per game was the worst in the division, conceding 10 more corners than even basement boys Sheffield United. United have conceded nine or more corners in six of their last seven games against sides in the top seven of the Premier League, whilst City have had 15 and 12 corners in their two games against United so far this season. Therefore, backing City to have over 7.5 corners at 1.80 looks a very attractive prospect.

Expect another busy afternoon for Onana

In the two meetings between these sides this season, Andre Onana has faced 18 shots on target, and made 12 saves, seven at Old Trafford and five at the Etihad. United’s goalkeeper has now made at least four saves in 11 of their last 15 games in all competitions, averaging 3.84 saves per game in the Premier League. Goalkeepers facing Man City in the league have averaged 4.71 saves per game, and the Cityzens have forced four or more saves from the opposing keeper in 10 of their last 14 league games. It seems highly likely that Onana will make at least four saves here, and he can be backed to do so at 1.36.

Man City vs Man United Shots and shots on target stats

Kevin De Bruyne offers nice value here

De Bruyne had five shots in the clash at the Etihad earlier this season and looks a good bet to have a shot on target here, which he can be backed to do at 1.50. The Belgium international had the third-most shots on target per 90 of any Man City player, at 1.25, and he has now had at least one shot on target in eight of his last 10 starts for the club. With City expected to dominate and De Bruyne getting off three or more shots in seven of his last 10 starts, there’s every chance this will land here.

24 05 2024 MANCHESTER CITY betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Alejandro Garnacho a good option for shots

No United player took more shots or shots per 90 than Alejandro Garnacho, the only United player to crack 100 shots, and taking 3.51 shots per 90, nearly a full shot ahead of Bruno Fernandes in second (2.60). Garnacho has now had two or more shots in 10 of his last 13 starts for the club, including six and three shots in two games against Liverpool and seven against Arsenal. He will not be afraid to shoot should he get the chance, so backing him to hit two or more shots at 1.62 looks great value here.

24 05 2024 MANCHESTER UNITED betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Man City vs Man United Goals and Assists Stats

Phil Foden offers the best value for City

Across his last six Premier League starts, Phil Foden has scored eight goals, and also contributed one assist. He already has three goals against United this season and has scored six goals in his last four games against the Red Devils. With 39 goal contributions in all competitions, only Erling Haaland has been directly involved in more goals for City this season. Foden can be backed at a very appealing 1.80 to score or assist here, whilst his tendency towards goals over assists in recent weeks suggests that backing him to score anytime at 2.40 is also a worthwhile choice.

24 05 2024 MANCHESTER CITY betbuilder stats pack GOALSCORING

Bruno Fernandes the only worthwhile option

With United’s attackers not having been particularly prolific, the only option worth taking in the goal or assist markets here is Bruno Fernandes. Across his last eight starts in all competitions, United’s captain has racked up seven goals and three assists, bagging a goal or an assist in six of these eight. He scored for United in last year’s final and remains the penalty taker here which could well come into play. Available at 3.6 to score or assist here, he offers by far the best value.

Man City Cards and Fouls Stats

Bernardo Silva looks a smart option here

Across his last 14 starts in all competitions, Bernardo Silva has committed a foul in 10 of those games. The Portugal international committed 0.77 fouls per 90 in the league, the fifth-most of any Man City player. He is the more reserved of the two wing options, and never neglects his defensive duties, always getting stuck into a tackle when needed as the only City attacker in the top three for tackles per 90 at 0.87. He will be tasked with keeping the shackles on Alejandro Garnacho, who draws 1.89 fouls per 90, the most of any United player. That makes backing Bernardo Silva to commit a foul at 1.40 look like the best option amongst City players here.

24 05 2024 MANCHESTER CITY betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Worth backing Kobbie Mainoo here

United’s young star has had an exceptional debut campaign and could be a smart play in the fouls won markets. His 1.07 fouls won per 90 in the Premier League was the third-most of any Red Devils player this season. He has won a foul in 11 of his last 14 starts in all competitions, and should find himself up against Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne, who committed the most and fourth-most fouls per 90 of any Man City player in the league 1.26 and 0.81, which makes this bet look even more appealing. Mainoo also won a foul in the 3-1 defeat at the Etihad earlier this season. Mainoo can be backed to be fouled at 1.73 here.

Man United Cards and Fouls Stats

Hard to ignore Bruno Fernandes here

Fernandes committed the second-most fouls of any Man United player in the Premier League, his 45 fouls work out to an average of 1.18 per 90. The Portugal international has committed a foul in 15 of his last 18 starts for United in all competitions, and he also has solid matchups here, finding himself up against Rodri and Ruben Dias, who won 1.07 and 0.53 fouls per 90 in the league this season. Fernandes is aggressive in the tackle at the best of times but can become petulant when his side are losing, which is always a bonus when backing him to commit a foul in a game he is expected to lose. He can be backed to commit a foul at 1.29 here.

24 05 2024 MANCHESTER UNITED betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Josko Gvardiol looks a solid pick for fouls won

Gvardiol looks the best option for Man City in the fouls won markets, where he can be backed at 1.67 to win one or more fouls. He won 0.85 fouls per 90, just outside of the top five for likely City starters and has won a foul in eight of his last 13 starts for the club. He is up against Amad Diallo and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, both of whom ranked within the top five for fouls per 90 in the league for United this season, at 1.16 and 0.86 respectively, so backing Gvardiol to win a foul at 1.67 looks to be a solid choice here.
