Manchester City v Wigan Athletic
 
Kick-off 5.15pm
 
Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of the FA Cup final from Wembley Stadium. It has the makings of a classic David and Goliath contest. Manchester City are one of the richest clubs in football while Wigan are playing in the club's first-ever FA Cup final.
 
Manchester CIty's FA Cup triumph in 2011 was the springboard for their Premier League title success last year. This season has been a relative disappointment for City, but another Wembley triumph would be further proof of the strides the club are making.
 
Under the astute management of Roberto Martinez, Wigan have defied the predictions of many in recent years by retaining their Premier League status. Once more the team is fighting to avoid relegation. But they will relish the opportunity to cause a big upset in the big Wembley showpiece occasion today.
 
Studio guests - Roy Keane, Lee Dixon and Gareth Southgate. Commentary Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
