Manchester City have moved an inch closer towards their dream of winning a treble after defeating Manchester United in a high-voltage FA final at Wembley.
It was a tense evening at Wembley in which they beat their arch-rivals 2-1 thanks to a brace from İlkay Gündoğan.
The match started in a flash as İlkay Gündoğan opened the scoring in the first minute of the match. After it looked like it would be a one-sided game in the first half, Manchester United fought their way back with a penalty goal by Bruno Fernandes.
However, the German midfielder proved once again to be the difference between the two sides with the 2nd goal of the match via an absolute cracker volley from outside the penalty area that sealed Cityzens' victory.
İlkay Gündoğan's future has been under scrutiny lately and he is tipped to leave the Etihad Stadium in July after his contract expires.
After helping his team in the final, the German midfielder hinted he is likely to leave the club after the Champions League final.
Speaking at the post-match interview İlkay Gündoğan spoke to BBC Sport and said:
"To win a final is always special. Every trophy is special. This group deserves it. We played really well, second half was amazing and we deserved to lift another trophy.
"Obviously we know how we want to play the kick off and we aim to do that, to go long for Erling and try to get a second ball. It just placed amazingly for me and I just had to hit it. Obviously it was a quite good strike."
After being asked about his future on BBC Sport, Gündoğan hinted at exit saying:
"I don't need these kind of days to feel appreciated and feel special in this club. I know that and that is why I have been here seven years. Nothing is decided yet, we will see what will happen."
Inter Milan stands in the way of Manchester City's dream treble
There is only one game left for Manchester City to get their historic first treble and Champions League title. They have been close before, but this looks like Pep Guardiola's best chance to cement his name in history.
Guardiola's team is more lethal than ever and with wins like the FA Cup final on their back, they will be in full spirits against Inter Milan in the final.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, maybe underdogs, but they are fully capable of crushing City's dream. Their match will be a treat for all football fans.
