FA Youth Cup Final: Sheffield United vs Manchester United

Larnell Cole scored for Manchester United when the teams met in the league earlier this season

Manchester United are seeking to win the FA Youth Cup for a record tenth time as they travel to Bramall Lane for the first leg of the encounter on Tuesday night.

Sheffield United stand in their way, who reach the final for the first time in their history.

21,000 Blades fans have already brought tickets for tomorrow’s clash that kicks-off at 7.30pm.

Blades manager John Pemberton has said “I know the club is making a big, big effort to encourage the fans down here which will make the evening very special for the boys, and they will have to handle the pressure,”

Sheffield United have defeated Cheltenham, Millwall, Blackpool, Leicester City and Aston Villa to reach the final of the competition whilst Manchester United have celebrated wins against Portsmouth, Liverpool, Newcastle and Chelsea.

In the league the teams drew 1-1. Larnell Cole scored a stunning free-kick before Joe Ironside got the Blades level.

The second leg will be held at Old Trafford next Monday in both side’s penultimate matches of the season.

  1. Predictions anyone?

    I’m going for a draw in the first leg and a Manchester United win in the second

  2. Will be an entertaining game methinks! Heading down there tomorrow morning

    At least one of the Sheffield lads have first team experience so will be tough but unexpectedly I’m backing United, hope Cole plays at least some part in the whole tie after the brilliant season he’s had so far.
