It’s been a disastrous season for Manchester United, but the players have the chance to finish on a high when they step onto the hallowed turf of Wembley for the FA Cup final on Saturday.

The Red Devils will play Manchester City in a repeat of last season’s top-flight clash, with fans and manager Erik ten Haag hoping for a different outcome this time around.

One thing that is guaranteed to be different is the outfit the 20-time Premier League champions will wear against Pep Guardiola’s side. The Old Trafford outfit usually wear their famous red shirt with white shorts and white socks.

However, as he reports Samuel Luckhurst, Ten Hag’s team will take to the field in black shorts and black socks. Andre Onana will be dressed in yellow as usual.

A change of clothes for United

“The FA confirms that #mufc will wear a red shirt, black shorts and black socks tomorrow, as in last year’s final, with the goalkeeper in a yellow shirt,” he wrote X (earlier Twitter).

This decision was upheld by the FA in an attempt to avoid any kind of shirt clash as City also wear white shorts. He will do the same on Saturday.

A similar scene was seen in the Manchester derby in the final of last season. The citizens came out as winners with a score of 2-1, after a terrible mistake by the then goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Dutch boss will be praying his team can pull off the unthinkable in the capital, especially with news of an impending transfer.

The future of EtH is in jeopardy

His team proved disastrous, mainly due to his decision to play in a high transition style that did not suit the players at his disposal.

Injuries were fairly common and despite a number of absences, the Dutchman never let up and his stubbornness saw the three-time European winners finish eighth in the league, their lowest ever finish.

There have been reports of the club looking for potential alternatives, with Mauricio Pochettino and Kieran McKenna’s names frequently doing the rounds of late.

The club have vehemently denied the reports and are said to be meeting after the FA Cup final in an attempt to resolve the managerial situation.
