Manchester United are set to take on Nottingham Forest in today’s FA Youth Cup Final to decide who will be crowned winners for 2022.
A record crowd of over 70,000 is expected to flock to Old Trafford to watch the youngsters compete, with the Red Devils holding the home advantage after being drawn out first in February’s draw.
The clash will be Forest’s first team in the final, while United are the Youth Cup’s most successful club and will be aiming to add an eleventh title to their collection.
However, it will be the first time they have featured in the final since 2011 when a team consisting of Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison beat Sheffield United.
The Blades’ former boss Travis Binnion is the one that will now lead United out at Old Trafford this evening and he will come up against Forest’s Warren Joyce - the former United reserve team and academy coach.
Here is all you need to know ahead of tonight’s monumental match.
