Ilkay Gundogan has scored the fastest FA Cup final goal ever after his stunning strike against Manchester United inside 13 seconds.

City started on the front foot with a long ball forward which bounced perfectly for the German midfielder, who unleashed a stunning right-footed volley to leave David de Gea stranded.

The goal sparked jubilant scenes in the Manchester City end as Pep Guardiola’s side look to add a second trophy in their quest of the Treble, ahead of next weekend’s Champions League final.

The goal was officially clocked at 13 seconds and breaks the previous record set by Everton striker Louis Saha, who scored after 25 seconds against Chelsea in 2009.

The match could be Gundogan’s last in England as City captain, with his contract expiring this summer amid speculation linking him with Barcelona and AC Milan.

The City skipper played a key role in his sides Premier League title win and scored two stunning goals in a crucial win at Everton in the run-in.

Speaking last month, Guardiola admitted Gundogan is among the best players he has had the pleasure of working with.
