FA CUP ‘Manchester City will not lose FA Cup final’ – Neville

The retired footballer tips the Citizens to beat his old club during the June 3 final at Wembley.

Manchester City will not lose the FA Cup final against Manchester United, Garry Neville has said.

While tipping the Etihad outfit to win the domestic competition, the former Red Devils defender has also said the Premier League title is in City’s hands.

A win over Arsenal – the current league leaders - boosted City’s chances of defending the league title.

"Talking about the treble, I think after last year when City somehow lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League when it was in their hands, I can't see anything but a City win in that," Neville said as per Sky Sports.

"I can't really see them losing the FA Cup final playing against a Manchester United team with a few defensive injuries.

"Then you look at the Premier League, it feels like everything is in their hands. I have nothing but respect for what they're doing, the way they play, the way Pep gets the best out of them."

The Citizens are on the verge of winning a treble, but they must navigate past Real Madrid in the Champions League semis to reach the final and go close to winning the coveted European club crown.

Should Pep Guardiola guide his side to a treble, he would equal an English record set by Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United in the 1998/99 season.

"The Champions League is the one Pep wants the most," Neville continued.

"What might happen - not that I think it will - is if he rests a few players and they end up losing it. That might be the only thing that could happen.

"He's got to keep everybody fresh for what's an important few months for the club, and it's where managers can come unstuck."
