sport news Manchester United win the FA Cup! 'Dead man walking' manager Erik ten Hag ... trends now

Man United have won the FA Cup after beating derby rivals Man City 2-1 in the final at Wembley, as goals from academy graduates Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho ensured the iconic trophy would be heading back to the red half of Manchester.

Prince William was introduced to both sets of players by respective captains Bruno Fernandes and Kyle Walker as teams stepped out onto the hallowed turf and beamed as he shook hands with every competitor.

The Duke of Cornwall later took his place in the stands and was joined by his son and future heir to the throne Prince George, with both kitted out in matching suits as they fulfilled their FA duties.

Thousands made the trip down to England's capital from the northwest in a repeat of last year's FA Cup final that Manchester City won on that occasion on their way to completing a historic Treble.

However, pre-match brawls between both sets of supporters threatened to sour the occasion with a group clashing near a bus stop in Station Road, Harrow in the lead-up.

 One shirtless fan was seen grappling on the floor at a bus stop with traffic at a standstill before more men pile in. Kicks and punches were thrown - and bottles thrown - during the shocking scenes in the hours ahead of the eagerly-anticipated final.

Fans of the two sides were allocated certain pubs to drink in across north-west London ahead of the match but that didn't stop the clashes in the street with police concerned about possible violence.
