Erik ten Hag is determined to secure a victory in the FA Cup final and continue his Manchester United project, despite facing speculation about his position as manager. The under-fire boss is set to lead his team against Manchester City this Saturday.

Ten Hag aims to overturn a challenging season that saw United finish eighth in the Premier League and get eliminated from the Champions League group stage. He led the team to their first trophy in six years by winning the League Cup last season.

Meanwhile, Manchester City is striving to make history by becoming the first men's team to achieve back-to-back doubles after clinching their fourth consecutive Premier League title. They are determined to build on their impressive record from last season, where they secured major trophies including the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.

The upcoming final marks a historic moment as it will be the first time two English teams have met in consecutive FA Cup finals. The last time a similar feat occurred was all the way back in 1885.

Erik ten Hag remains optimistic about United's chances and is focused on securing their first FA Cup triumph since 2016, potentially avenging their previous loss to City in the same stage of the competition.

Despite the challenges faced, Ten Hag is determined to lead United to victory, emphasizing the significance of winning trophies and acknowledging the tough competition posed by City. He expressed confidence in his team's ability to rise to the occasion and highlighted the importance of believing in their prospects.

As the final approaches, Ten Hag has received a boost with the return of key players from injury. With the stage set for the highly anticipated clash, both teams are gearing up for a thrilling encounter at Wembley Stadium.
