Repeat of the 1990 FA Cup final as Man United to wear white kit for Crystal Palace showdown

Louis van Gaal’s side will be the away team at Wembley next month.

MANCHESTER UNITED WILL wear their away kit in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on 21 May, it has been confirmed.

A coin toss was made, due to the club’s kits clashing, and United lost, meaning they will wear white, in a repeat of the 1990 final between the two clubs.

United drew with Palace 3-3 on that occasion at Wembley, with the Red Devils going on to win the replay 1-0.

That trophy proved to be the first of Sir Alex Ferguson’s incredible 26-year reign and Louis van Gaal will hope to stage a repeat next month.

The Dutchman has come in for criticism for his management thus far this term, with Jose Mourinho heavily tipped to replace him this summer, but may well secure the FA Cup for the first time since 2004.
