Historical Man United FA Cup final stats

Manchester United is one of the most illustrious clubs in English football. The club has had a huge impact on the FA Cup. The FA Cup is the oldest and most exicting domestic cup tournament. There was a time winning the FA Cup meant more than winning the league. This has changed since the start of the Premier League, but it still the biggest and most important domestic cup. With the second Manchester derby FA Cup final in a row, it’s time to dive into the statistics for both clubs.

Successful FA Cup journeys

The 2024 FA Cup final, will be the 22nd time Manchester United plays the final. The club's first triumph came in 1909 when they defeated Bristol City 1-0, marking the beginning of their storied legacy in the FA Cup. Over the decades, United's flair for dramatic and high-stakes matches has led them to a total of 12 victories, the latest being in 2016 against Crystal Palace, where they won 2-1 after extra time. The Mancunians lost their last two editions. It hasn’t happen to them before to loose 3 FA Cup finals, without winning one in between, so this 2024 edition is going to be a very important one.

Goals stats

Throughout their 21 final appearances, Manchester United has scored a total of 41 goals, showcasing their offensive power. Their most emphatic victory came in 1994 when they routed Chelsea 4-0, demonstrating the attacking style that has become synonymous with the club. Conversely, they have conceded 24 goals in these finals, with their defense being tested rigorously by some of the best teams in England. On average they’ve scored 2 goals a match, conceding 1 a match. It will be interesting to see if they can continue this average score this year.


Of the 21 finals, Manchester United has seen a definitive result within the regulation 90 minutes on 16 occasions, winning 9 and losing 7. Notable among these are their wins against Liverpool in 1977 and 1996, both pivotal moments in their FA Cup history. Manchester United's journey in the FA Cup has also been marked by dramatic replays and matches stretching into extra time. The 1983 final against Brighton & Hove Albion initially ended in a 2-2 draw, but United stormed to a 4-0 victory in the replay. Similarly, their 1990 showdown with Crystal Palace saw them draw 3-3 in a thrilling match, only to secure the cup with a 1-0 win in the replay.
