Gary Lineker hosts live coverage of the 138th FA Cup final at Wembley, where Watford will try to upset the odds against Manchester City and lift the trophy for the first time.

The FA Cup is the one domestic trophy that City manager Pep Guardiola has yet to win in English football, and his team will be determined to end an impressive season on a high. City have won the FA Cup five times before, although only one of those has come in the last 50 years, with Yaya Toure earning them victory against Stoke in 2011.

Watford’s only previous FA Cup final appearance came in 1984, when they were beaten 2-0 by Everton. The Hornets will begin as underdogs against City’s superstars but will believe anything is possible, having come from 2-0 down to beat Wolves 3-2 in the semi-finals.

Alan Shearer and Ian Wright provide expert analysis.
