Previous Encounters:

City played Crystal Palace on the way to the FA Cup Final in 1926. City won the tie 11-4 in the fifth round. They were beaten 1-0 in the final by Bolton. The following clip shows the coin toss and two city goals from the game played at Maine Road.

During the 1926 season City were "typical city" - the managerless side managed to beat United 6-1 at old Trafford in the highest derby victory, beat Palace 11-4, became the first Manchester side to play at Wembley in the FA Cup final against Bolton and managed to get relegated!
