Pep Guardiola explains selection conundrum in FA Cup

Man City will face neighbours Man United tonight at Wembley.

Pep Guardiola has his full team at his disposal as they take on arch-rivals Man United in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

The treble-chasing side had some fitness concerns in the last two weeks.

Players like Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji all missed last weekend’s final Premier League game against Brentford.

But the manager reveals that the whole squad is now looking fit and healthy.

He said: ‘They’ve trained well in the last two training sessions. They are all of them, more or less, fine.’

But first-team goalkeeper Ederson will be out of this fixture and backup keeper Ortega will start the FA Cup final.

Ortega has played all of City’s previous matches in the tournament.

‘Stefan is going to play,” said Guardiola of the German.

‘I have always been like that in the FA Cup. The keeper who has played in the FA Cup is going to play in the FA Cup (final).’
