In the final match against Manchester United, City’s Ilkay Gündogan scored the fastest goal in FA Cup final history, finding the back of the net just 12 seconds into the game. This record surpasses the previous record held by Louis Saha, who scored in 25 seconds during the 2009 final.

Thirty-two minutes later, Bruno Fernandes equalized for United from the penalty spot after Grealish was penalized for a handball. In the second half, Gundogan scored again, restoring City’s lead when he converted De Bruyne’s free-kick. The match ultimately ended with a score of 2-1 in favour of Manchester City.
