The 2018/19 FA Cup final takes place this Saturday as Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City take on Javi Gracia’s Watford for the famous trophy.

The match, which takes place at Wembley Stadium, will be shown live on BBC One and BT Sport.

City are looking for their sixth triumph in this competition and first since 2011, when they overcame Stoke City 1-0 thanks to Yaya Toure’s late strike.

They last played in the final in 2013, but were defeated by Wigan Athletic in one of the biggest shocks in the history of the tournament.

Watford will be looking to pull off something similar here, in what is only their second appearance in the showpiece match and first since a 2-0 defeat to Everton in 1984.

The BBC’s main coverage starts at 3.55pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, where Gary Lineker is joined in the studio by Alan Shearer and Ian Wright. Dan Walker and Eilidh Barbour will provide reports.

BT’s coverage gets underway at 4pm on BT Sport 2, where Rio Ferdinand, Steve McManaman and Glenn Hoddle join Jake Humphrey. Match commentary comes from Ian Darke and Robbie Savage, while pitchside reports come from Des Kelly.

Kick-off 5.00pm

The match will also be streamed live via the BBC iPlayer, and via the BT Sport App.
