The Red Devils lost 1-0 to bitter rivals Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final after Eden Hazard scored the winner from the penalty spot.

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling started at centre-half in the FA Cup showpiece and the former Blackburn Rovers defender brought down Hazard to allow the Belgian star to score the winner from the penalty spot.
