Watch Manchester United vs Aston Villa Live FA Cup match
This is a repeat of the 1957 FA Cup final, in which Peter McParland clattered Ray Wood, then scored twice to give Aston Villa a 2-1 win over the Busby Babes.
The striker’s egregiously clumsy collision with Manchester United’s keeper wouldn’t be tolerated these days, but it flew back then, taking away Matt Busby’s side’s hopes of the double, and using up all of Villa’s FA Cup karma too … because since then, the teams have been drawn together six times, and United have won them all.
