Following two seasons without a trophy, Manchester United have won the FA Cup.
Jesse Lingard struck a sensational extra-time volley as 10-man Manchester United came from behind against Crystal Palace to win their first trophy since Alex Ferguson retired.

Great stuff Palace. But that Lingard goal. Holy smoke.

To be fair if your going to win a cup that's some goal to do it with and it's hard to say they didn't deserve after that #FACupFinal

Crazily good reaction from Lingard there. Ridiculous volley. #FACupFinal

Palace were on course for a shock victory after local hero and substitute Jason Puncheon fired them ahead with just 12 minutes remaining but Wayne Rooney set up an immediate Juan Mata equaliser, which suddenly brought the game to life.
It looked like Palace had the advantage when Chris Smalling was sent off in extra time after he hauled back Yannick Bolasie to incur a second booking.
Fans had high praise for skipper Wayne Rooney – now playing in midfield.
Wayne Rooney has been superb today, playing a Captain's game. 100% commitment #FACupFinal

LVG: "I've won a trophy in four countries, not many managers can say that." #FACupFinal

While Palace may have lost, Alan Pardew's dad-dancing goal celebration will live on forever.
Pardew's dance now seems even more hilarious. Mate, you danced for 60 seconds of joy. pic.twitter.com/ZhOpjCHqq9

That dance will forever be known as "The Pard" #FACupFinal
