Manchester City are on the cusp of making history when they face Watford at Wembley.
Pep Guardiola’s side are aiming to win their sixth FA Cup trophy and could become the first team to win the domestic treble in England, having already won the Premier League title and League Cup this season.
They’d also be bidding to join the likes Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea to win both major domestic cup competitions in the same season.
But they need to overcome Javi Gracia’s Watford in the process.
“If we win tomorrow the season is extraordinary,” Guardiola said via Sky. “If we don’t I think it’s extraordinary. We could have lost the Premier League by a point and the effort would have been the same.
“My players get plenty of love from our fans. To win four titles in one season will be incredible.”
“It’s a final, and hopefully we can celebrate it. Not just the FA Cup, but the Carabao Cup, the Premier League and the Community Shield.
“We will celebrate those achievements anyway on Saturday, Sunday and Monday here in Manchester.”
🗣 Reporter: “You’ve got the prospect of winning the first ever domestic treble in this country. How does that excite you?”
🗣 Pep Guardiola: “The first time in Men’s Football. The Women have already done it.”

On being tipped as overwhelming favourites to lift the trophy on Saturday, Guardiola added: “It is what it is, and this started last season when nobody could beat us.
“If Liverpool had won the Premier League, it would have been seen as an incredible achievement. But when Manchester City win the league, it’s OK, it’s an achievement. It is what it is.”
