Gallery: Wembley bound

There were smiles aplenty as Manchester City departed for the FA Cup final.

Pep Guardiola and his players have travelled down the day before the showpiece game and appeared to be in high spirits, with Oleks Zinchenko, Riyad Mahrez and Danilo all sporting grins as they left Manchester Piccadilly train station.

City head to London looking to secure a clean sweep of all four English trophies, having lifted the Premier League, Carabao Cup and Community Shield already this season.

Watford stand in our way at Wembley, where the action will get under way at 5pm (BST) and while City will be without Benjamin Mendy, who has not recovered in time, Fernandinho has trained in preparation for the game.

Check out the pictures below for an exclusive view into the travelling party…
