Sixth round proper[edit]

Most of the sixth round of FA Cup games were played over the weekend 10–11 March 1990, with the Oldham Athletic – Aston Villa game and the Liverpool – QPR replay being played on the 14th.

Alex Ferguson continued to defy the odds with a Manchester United side that was struggling in the league but performing wonders in the cup, as they defeated Sheffield United 1-0.

Liverpool built up their hopes of a unique second double (which had eluded them in dramatic fashion during the previous two seasons) by beating QPR in a quarter-final replay.

Aston Villa's double hopes were ended when they crashed 3-0 to an Oldham Athletic team that hadn't even played top division football since 1923.

Cambridge United's hopes of becoming the first Fourth Division team to reach the FA Cup semi-finals were ended with a 1-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, who moved closer to a first FA Cup final but were first faced with the task of overcoming a Liverpool side that had crushed them 9-0 in the league earlier in the season.

Semi-finals[edit]

The semi-final matches were played on 8 April 1990.

Oldham Athletic, a Second Division side, gave Manchester United a real run for their money with a 3-3 draw that forced a replay. United won the replay 2-1, but the game was marred by controversy when referee Joe Worrall failed to award Oldham Athletic an early goal after Nick Henry's shot clearly crossed the line.

Seven months after losing 9-0 to them in a league game, Crystal Palace found a 10-goal improvement to defeat Liverpool 4-3 and give them their first FA Cup final appearance as well as ending their opposition's hopes of a second double - the third season running that Liverpool had suffered a late blow to their double hopes.

Final[edit]

Crystal Palace, playing in their first FA Cup final, took on a Manchester United side that already had six FA Cups to its name, and a thrilling game ended 3-3 with Manchester United taking the lead twice and Crystal Palace once before a late equaliser by Mark Hughes (his second goal of the game) forced a replay.

Replay[edit]

Lee Martin, a 21-year-old defender who nearly didn't play due to Alex Ferguson's doubts about his fitness, scored the winning goal as Manchester United sealed their first major trophy in five years and their first under the management of Alex Ferguson, ending months of speculation that his job was at risk due to dismal league performances.
