On April 22, 2023, Manchester City secured a place in the FA Cup final with a 3-0 win over Sheffield United. Riyad Mahrez was the hero for City, scoring a hat-trick to lead his team to victory at Wembley Stadium.
Mahrez opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the first half after City were awarded a spot-kick for a handball in the box. He then doubled City’s lead with a brilliant solo effort, weaving past several defenders before slotting the ball past the goalkeeper.
In the second half, Mahrez completed his hat-trick with a tap-in from Jack Grealish’s cross, sealing a comfortable win for the Premier League champions.
City will now await the winner of the other semi-final tie between Manchester United and Brighton, which will take place on Sunday. The FA Cup final is scheduled for May 27, 2023, at Wembley Stadium.
