Manchester United defeat Crystal Palace to claim FA Cup

Manchester United defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 to give Van Gaal his first ever trophy for the club, even though it might not be enough to secure his position.


Man United scored an extra time winner to beat Crystal Palace in the final at Wembley tonight after defender Chris Smalling was given a red card for maliciously holding onto Bolasie while on the counter.


Goals from Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were enough to give Man U it's first trophy since Alex Ferguson retired. 
It was the first time Wayne Rooney had won the FA Cup despite being at Man U for over 10 years and rightly so as his good footwork was responsible for Man U's first goal scored by Juan Mata. 



Van Gaal by this time tomorrow might not be Man U's coach according to reports this evening from England,  but he will surely be happy to leave with his head held high.
