The FA Cup final teams

Manchester United reached the FA Cup final by beating Everton 2-1 in the semi-finals. They have won the FA Cup 11 times, with their most recent victory in 2004.

Crystal Palace beat Watford 2-1 to reach this year's final. The last time Crystal Palace and Manchester United met in the final was in 1990, when a replay was required after the initial match finished 3-3 in extra time. Manchester United took a 1-0 victory in the replay, so this year Crystal Palace will be looking to settle the score.

Fans and players alike will be hoping for a warm, dry day with a light breeze. This will make for good playing conditions and a fine final day for spectators.
