Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has revealed that he is “looking forward” to taking on Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

Palace will enter Saturday’s clash as the underdogs against a Man United team that are seeking their first FA Cup since 2004.

Pardew expects the Red Devils to “dominate possession” at Wembley and has also paid tribute to the strength of Man United, claiming that the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini will all provide threats to his team.

“I’m up against the biggest club in the world. I’m looking forward to it, my players are looking forward to it,” Pardew told reporters.

“They’ll dominate possession and we’ll be very, very dangerous when they over commit. Martial, Rooney, Mata, Fellaini… These are top players. In the height of their careers and that’s why they play at Man United.”

This weekend’s clash will be a repeat of the 1990 FA Cup final, when Man United triumphed following a replay.
