London,England:Goals from Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were enough to crown Manchester United winners of the FA Cup played on Saturday.
Crystal Palace had shown its intent to lift the trophy through a late goal from Jason Puncheon 78′ after he came in as a substitute and sent United players into panic.
However, Mata replied almost immediately 81′ settling the match to a draw and forcing extra time play.
Lingard scored the winning goal through a superb volley 110′ following Palace’s failure to clear the ball inside the box with several minutes of play remaining.
The match ended United 2-1 Crystal Palace; in a match that saw the winners play with ten men after Chris Smalling was shown a second yellow card.
United are now joint winners with Arsenal with 12 FA Cups each.
