We have faced the Blues twice at the stadium before, both matches taking place in 2011. After losing the FA Cup semi-final 1-0, with Paul Scholes sent off and Yaya Toure scoring the only goal of the game, we began the following season with a thrilling 3-2 victory in the Community Shield.
Trailing 2-0 at the break to efforts from Joleon Lescott and Edin Dzeko, a typically spirited fightback ensued with Chris Smalling and Nani netting twice inside six second-half minutes. A brilliant injury-time winner from Nani ensured success for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
We did take on Bolton Wanderers, who are based in Greater Manchester, in the 1958 FA Cup final, losing 2-0 to a Nat Lofthouse double, after a miraculous run to Wembley in the wake of the Munich Air Disaster.
