Uniteds Youth Cup defence begins away
Manchester Uniteds quest to retain the FA Youth Cup will begin with an away tie against Crystal Palace.
The third round proper is the stage at which Premier League and Championship clubs enter the competition, so the trip to Palace will be our first fixture in it since winning the 2021/22 final on 11 May.
Travis Binnions side defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1 in front of a record FA Youth Cup crowd of67,492, thanks to an early goal by captain Rhys Bennett and a second-half double from Alejandro Garnacho.
Garnacho has since gone on to play for our first team, of course, and, earlier today, he was crowned Player of the Month for November.

Palace versus United as a Youth Cup fixture is enshrined in the clubs history, given that was the final when the famous Class of 92 won the competition 30 years ago.
A side managed by Eric Harrison and including future first-team stars such as Gary Neville, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Ben Thornley beat the Eagles 3-1 at Selhurst Park and then 3-2 at Old Trafford.
In the following season, 1992/93, the Reds reached the final again - this time with Phil Neville and Paul Scholes added to the line-up - but lost to Leeds United on aggregate.
United have won the FA Youth Cup a record 11 times, including the first five years from its inception in 1953.
