Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has switched his attention to the FA Cup final against Manchester City on Saturday, May 25.

The Cameroonian shot-stopper enjoyed a tough campaign in his first season in England but is hoping to wrap up the season with a trophy.

The former Ajax goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in the final game of the EPL season as Man United defeated Brighton and Hove Albion.

United could book a place in Europe next season if they beat their city rivals to the FA Cup.

"All together focus on Wembley," he wrote on social media this week.

Meanwhile, City are seemingly yet to get over their historic four-peat after wild celebrations throughout the week following their league triumph.

Pep Guardiola's men defeated West Ham United on the final day to be crowned champions after going neck-to-neck with Arsenal for most of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Onana won the April Save of the Month award following his point-blank stop during their game against Burnley, as posted by the Premier League's social media.

Onana's heroics sends United into FA Cup final

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Onana came to Manchester United's rescue after saving a penalty in the shootouts of the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City in April.

The Red Devils threw away a three-goal lead as the Championship side staged a strong second-half comeback to force the game to be decided on post-match penalties.

Casemiro missed the first spot kick but Onana's heroic saves ensured the Premier League side progressed to the final for the second year running despite their big scare.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Onana achieved a Manchester United landmark during his side's Premier League clash against Newcastle United on May 15.

The Cameroonian was between the sticks as the Red Devils hosted Eddie Howe's men in the last game at Old Trafford this season, claiming a crucial 3-2 victory.
