Jesse Lingard scored in extra-time as Manchester United came from behind to give Louis van Gaal a piece of silverware and leave Alan Pardewâ€™s Crystal Palace to wonder what might have been.
Manchester Unitedâ€™s love affair with the FA Cup continued in dramatic style at Wembley as the Reds beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to win the competition.
Louis van Gaalâ€™s men had to come from behind after conceding a 78th-minute opener scored by Jason Puncheon and equalised swiftly through Juan Mata to take the final into extra-time.
United suffered a blow in the additional period of 30 minutes when Chris Smalling was sent off for a second bookable offence but the remaining ten men rallied to great effect and Jesse Lingard smashed in a stunning volley with 10 minutes left on the clock. It was a fitting goal to win the Cup and it triggered tremendous celebrations when referee Mark Clattenburg blew the final whistle.
