‘If Man City do this, they would beat Man United comfortably’ – Former Man United star admits

Andy Cole – who helped Manchester United win the treble in 1998-99 – has given his take on Saturday’s FA Cup final involving his former side and Premier League champions Manchester City.

“If Manchester City score early, they’ll go on to win the game comfortably,” Cole told FA Cup Odds. “If Manchester United frustrates them and nicks a goal, they can win a game.

“I have this feeling that Manchester United will win that game. No one seems to mention that the last time they played, Manchester United won, they played well and convincingly won. But anything can happen in the FA Cup, that’s the magic of it.

“However you look at it, Manchester United will go into this game knowing we’ve achieved history by winning this cup and completing the treble.

“Our neighbours have a great chance of matching the treble if they beat us. They have the club’s history and legacy on the line, it’s as simple as that.”
