Tickets are priced £5 for adults and £1 for concessions, and, for those who cannot attend, we will be showing the game live on MUTV.

As a result of the fixture being arranged for this weekend, Saturday's Under-18 Premier League match against Everton has been postponed.

The Toffees clash will now take place on Saturday 11 March, at Carrington (11:00 GMT kick-off).

United won the trophy for a record 11th time last term, when Nottingham Forest were defeated 3-1 in the final at Old Trafford.

Rhys Bennett and Alejandro Garnacho (2) scored the goals, in front of a bumper crowd of 67,492 at the Theatre of Dreams back in May.

The Reds famously beat Palace in the 1992 final, winning 6-3 on aggregate with a youth team containing the likes of Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Ryan Giggs.
