The 1994 FA Cup Final was the 49th FA Cup final to be held since the Second World War and was contested between Manchester United and Chelsea. United went into the final as Premier League champions, having won the title by 8 points over Blackburn Rovers. They were bidding to become only the fourth team of the 20th Century to complete "the Double" and the first in their own history. Chelsea, on the other hand, were playing in their first major final since 1971 having finished 14th in the Premier League.
The match took place on a rainy May afternoon, and, in the first half, Chelsea were the better team. Gavin Peacock had the best chance of the opening 45 minutes when his half-volley hit the crossbar. In the second half, Manchester United took over with three goals in the space of nine minutes; two almost identical penalties by Eric Cantona and a shot by Mark Hughes, following a slip by Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair. Brian McClair scored a late fourth following an unselfish pass by Paul Ince.
