Josep Guardiola is becoming a Manchester City legend. The Spanish manager has a winning history, and it is time for him to prove it in the upcoming FA Cup, when they face Manchester United at Wembley Stadium, one of the cathedrals of world football and the home of all English football.

The Citizens would have a chance to strengthen their hegemony within England, after they have been able to overtake Arsenal on points and win the Premier League, even though at the halfway point of the season it seemed impossible. But nothing seems to be with 'Pep' and his magical moves. Plus they have signed the elements that most highlight the tactical moves the manager makes.

One of the most important purchases is Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker has broken all challenges and wants to add one more to his magical history at City. Especially when he has stolen the limelight from the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez.

Even the young Argentine striker, who has just won the World Cup with Argentina at Qatar 2022, remains a regular change for Haaland, who has not let go of the starting berth despite a few injuries that have popped up at times during the season. But such is the striker's effectiveness that Guardiola has to give him his place.

How will United ruin Guardiola?

If United, managed by Erik ten Hag, manage to win the FA Cup; they could also put the brakes on the so-called 'treble' that Guardiola and his players so desperately want. It should be remembered that he has only managed it once before and that was with FC Barcelona and that magical season in 2009, when he won it with Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta as the main protagonists.
