Manchester City is a strong favorite to win the FA Cup title, and it is easy to understand why. The club has scored 20 goals in just five FA Cup games this season, while only allowing three goals against. Man City held three opponents scoreless, including Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi finals match. Additionally, Manchester City just won their second consecutive Premier League title, and already holds the Caraboa Cup. A victory in the FA Cup final would earn them a domestic treble with three major English soccer titles. This may be as far as this elite team can go, as the UEFA is considering banning Man City from Champions League play as reported by The New York Times. Controversy aside, Manchester City will be difficult to defeat with a title on the line.
Watford is the underdog in this FA Cup match, but the team is far from a long shot. They won five games through the FA Cup rounds, including a thrilling come from behind win in extra time against another Premier League team, the Wolverhampton Wanderers. The team is fortunate to have key defender Jose Holebas eligible for the FA Cup Finals, because his red card from the semi finals game was rescinded, as reported by BBC Sport. Watford will need every option available if they are going to win the day and this championship.
