FA Cup

Starting XI: Man City v Watford

Manchester City are one game away from creating history as they take on Watford in the FA Cup final this evening - Here's how the two sides will line up.

FA Cup Final

Teams: Manchester City v Watford

Date: 18 May 2018

Venue: Etihad

Having already secured the League Cup and Premier League title this season, Pep Guardiola's can become the first English side to win the domestic treble.

The Citizens have enjoyed a relatively easy passage to the final as they avoided any of the top six Premier League sides, and faced lower league opposition on three occasions.

Watford, meanwhile, only face lower league opposition in their first round encounter and last 16 before they came back from two goals down to defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 in the last round.

While Guardiola will be without his first choice full-back, Benjamin Mendy, Watford will have Jose Holebas available after the defender's red card against West Ham United was rescinded.

City will be looking to end an eight-year drought without the FA Cup crown, while the Hornets are still searching for the first title.

Here's how they line up:

Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Kompany (C), Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Silva, Mahrez, Bernardo, Sterling, Jesus.

Watford: Gomes; Femenia, Cathcart, Mariappa, Holebas; Deulofeu, Capoue, Doucoure, Hughes, Pereyra; Deeney.
