On Saturday, Manchester City will take on Stoke City at Wembley in the FA Cup Final. Both sides have had a 30-plus year wait for a trophy (City 35, Stoke 40), and are itching to end the drought. City go in as favourites, but anything can happen once the whistle blows.

City overcame their arch-rivals Manchester United to reach their first FA Cup Final since 1981, in what was a fiercely contested game. It finished 1-0 with a finish from a Yaya Toure.

The Ginger Maestro (Paul Scholes) saw red not long after the goal went it.

It was a great game and many people have said they think that that was the moment City stepped out of United’s shadow, became their own entity and started to properly challenge Manchester United’s domestic dominance.

Here are the highlights, enjoy!
