    Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United will play city rivals Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday, 3 June 2023.

    Marchs’ blazed penalty over the crossbar after goalless 120 minutes decided the fate of the game.

    Both sides could not be split and United won a penalty shootout for the first time since 2019.

    Both teams played exceptional penalties and Victor Lindelof was the hero at the end.

    Lindelof scored the last penalty that sent Manchester United to their 21st FA Cup final to be played at Wembley.

    The first 12 spot-kicks of the penalty shootout had been scored before Solly March stepped up and missed.

    Despite great form under manager Roberto De Zerbi, March ballooned his penalty high into the stands.

    That miss gave Lindelof the opportunity to break the hearts of Brighton’s fans furthermore.

    Manchester United’s leading goalscorer Marcus Rashford endured a frustrating afternoon and couldn’t finish from outside the box.

    He made a nice swerving efforts and it was given an extra kick by a deflection but Sanchez managed to stretch out a paw to meet the ball in the 105th minute.
