Cup final coverage

The Carling Cup final kicks off on Sunday afternoon (15:00), but here at our big-match build-up begins 24 hours earlier.

Nick Coppack will be down in the capital on Saturday and blogging from the United team hotel as the players arrive at their London headquarters. He’ll also be present when MUTV broadcast live from the hotel at 18:30, for a show expected to include on-air interviews with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Paddy Crerand and Lou Macari.

On Sunday, Nick will get to Wembley early to talk to fans outside the ground and give readers a taste of that famous cup final atmosphere.

During the game you’ll be able to follow every kick thanks to Match Tracker (text commentary by Matt Nichols), while Nick will continue to blog from his seat in the Wembley press box.

After the final whistle, read Adam Bostock’s match report for a detailed analysis of how events on the pitch unfolded. While you’re doing that, Nick will be down in the Wembley tunnel, hopefully grabbing some post-match reaction from one or two of the United players and coaching staff.

Video highlights will be available on MUTV Online 24 hours after the final whistle.
