VIDEO: Crystal Palace 1 – 2 Manchester United (2016 FA Cup Final) Highlights
Jesse Lingard scored an absolute thunderb*stard in extra-time as 10-man Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to win the FA Cup.
Substitute Lingard struck in the second half of extra-time after Antonio Valencia’s cross had been cleared by a dogged Palace defence.
Alan Pardew’s side had taken the lead through a substitute of their own when Jason Puncheon opened the scoring in the 78th minute, only for Juan Mata to equalise within a matter of moments with a deflected strike.
Chris Smalling was sent off just before the end of the first half of extra-time for a foul on Yannick Bolasie, but United struck the decisive blow to win their first trophy since the 2013 Community Shield in what could be Louis van Gaal’s final game
