Crystal Palace had quite average season, finishing 15th in the EPL standings with 42 points and 39-51 goal difference after 38 matches played. However, the Eagles showed impressive results in the oldest competition in the league, beating such solid teams like Southampton (2-1), Stoke City (1-0), impressive Tottenham (1-0).

Another London side, Watford, were defeated in the semifinal at Wembley (2-1) and now Crystal Palace are step away from the title.

Manchester United have failed to reach their season objective to qualify for the Champions League next season. The Red Devils have gained 66 points in 38 matches and finished fifth only due to goal difference. The rivals City had the same number of points but much better goal difference (+30 against +14). On the way to the final Manchester United have defeated Sheffield United (1-0), Derby County (3-1), Shrewsbury (3-0), West Ham (1-1, 2-1 in the second leg). The semifinal at Wembley ended with 2-1 over another disappointing side, Everton. FA Cup triumph would slightly improve things for the United after bitter ending of the season.
Manchester United haven’t lost a single match to Crystal Palace after full time and beat the opponents quite often. Two league matches ended with a scoreless draw and 2-0 win of the Red Devils at the end of April. The United are still more skilled side with a lot of talent and potential to fulfill and it should be decisive factor in the final.
Prediction for the match: Manchester United to win.
