Guardiola will have a full squad at his disposal for the upcoming final at Wembley.

Manchester City have all their players available ahead of their FA Cup showdown with Manchester United.

Having already won the Premier League, the Citizens are chasing a historic treble. Pep Guardiola’s men will first take on their city rivals at Wembley for the FA Cup before meeting Inter in the Champions League final.

Last weekend, Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji were absent from City’s squad for their last league game of the season against Brentford.

However, it seems Guardiola coached a full squad in his side’s training on Friday.

“They’ve trained well in the last two training sessions. They are all of them, more or less, fine,” the Spaniard said ahead of the final.

Despite the high stakes, Guardiola will stick to his plan of using backup goalkeeper Stefan Ortega in the domestic cup matches.

“Stefan is going to play,” Guardiola said of the German keeper.

“I have always been like that in the FA Cup. The keeper who has played in the FA Cup is going to play in the FA Cup (final).”

City will take a week off after the FA Cup final, preparing for the UCL final against Inter.
