FA Cup final & those suits

Manchester United and Liverpool met at the old Wembley back in 1996 as they went head-to-head for the FA Cup.

Sure, Eric Cantona's volley to give Sir Alex Ferguson's men a narrow win was a memorable moment, but this final will only be remembered for one thing and one thing only - those white suits…

Manchester United 4-0 Liverpool

Manchester United dealt their rivals a footballing lesson during the 2002/03 season, smashing four past Gérard Houllier's men.

Granted, they were reduced to 10 men for the majority of the contest, but Ruud van Nistelrooy's brace helped United on their way to a home rout.

Fernando Torres - Liverpool no.9!

Despite his best attempts to convince you otherwise, Fernando Torres used to be pretty good.

Case in point - Manchester United away in 2009, where Torres tore Nemanja Vidic apart, giving him arguably one of his toughest afternoon's as a defender.

Torres simply stole the show and inspired Liverpool to a 4-1 win over their bitter rivals.

What they'd give for a repeat scoreline this evening…
