Manchester United's Casemiro and Hojlund left out of team for FA Cup final against Man City

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag left Casemiro and Rasmus Hojlund out of his starting lineup for the FA Cup final against Manchester City on Saturday.

Both players were named on the bench, with Marcus Rashford starting up front at Wembley and on-loan Sofyan Amrabat also playing.

Casemiro has endured a difficult campaign in his second season at United and was heavily criticized for his recent performance in United's 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

City manager Pep Guardiola named Jack Grealish and Ruben Dias on the bench as he looked to complete back-to-back Premier League and FA Cup doubles.

John Stones was picked to start for the first time since City's win against Chelsea in the semi-final on April 20.

City beat United 2-1 in last year's final.

Manchester City: Ortega, Walker, Ake, Stones, Gvardiol, Rodri, Kovacic, De Bruyne, Foden, Silva, Haaland.

Manchester United: Onana, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Dalot, Mainoo, Amrabat, Garnacho, McTominay, Rashford, Fernandes.
