Manchester United vs Aston Villa in the 2010 Carling Cup Final. What will be the colour of the ribbons on the trophy?
Sir Alex Ferguson will seek to add another piece of silverware to an already bulging trophy cabinet while Martin O’Neill will attempt to outsmart the United tactician.
Both managers will rely on their key players to deliver the knockout blow at Wembley with James Milner the likely Villan star and who else but Wayne Rooney on the opposite end.
With so many English stars on show, Frank Malley is adamant that this will do English football a world of good.
Villa trio of Carlos Cuellar, Richard Dunne and Stiliyan Petrov are all ready to turn the tables on their more experienced rivals to ensure that Ferguson cannot add to his impressive trophy-haul.
Tension is building up towards the big match as fans from the two clubs clash in the heated debate as to who will be hoisting up the first trophy in English football this season.
Finally, we relieve the road to Wembley for both teams. The Villans tore Blackburn Rovers apart in the semi-finals with a 7-4 aggregate while United stamped their authority over their cross-town rivals, Manchester City to progress into the final.
If all that is not enough to whet your appetite for Sunday’s showdown, we take it up a notch with some retro classics with five of the best League Cup Finals.
