FA Youth Cup final between Man Utd and Nottingham Forest set for sellout

Tonight's FA Youth Cup final between Manchester United and Nottingham Forest is set for a sellout at Old Trafford.

A crowd of more than 70,000 is expected at the Theatre of Dreams.

The United group is looking to emulate the famous Class of 92 that included David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and the Nevilles and the less-fabled 2011 winners that included Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.

Coach Travis Binnion says it is their example and the pathway of many more academy graduates that will show the way for the class of 2022.

Binnion said: “When you get to this stage in the competition those previous successes are mentioned and you are compared to those groups, which is nice for the lads.

“They can see what sort of careers they have had, the household names they've become.

“You can't put a price on that. You can have everything up on a wall, you can you say this, that and the other. But to actually see it and feel it on a consistent basis is a huge internal carrot."
