Manchester United will attempt to salvage something from their tumultuous season – and potentially keep manager Louis van Gaal in a job – in Saturday's FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. After failing to qualify for the Champions League for the second time in three years, the Wembley showpiece represents United's last chance to make good on a campaign of stagnant football and simmering fan dissent.While United have not won the FA Cup since 2004, when they beat Millwall 3-0 in Cardiff, victory Saturday would see them equal Arsenal's tally of 12 successes in the competition – a record they once held outright.Prior to the 1990 final, Ferguson had gone three and a half years without a trophy, but following a gripping 3-3 draw, a solitary goal by left-back Lee Martin earned United a 1-0 victory in the replay.Following a strong start to the season, Palace won just two of their final 21 league games, which saw them finish 15th in the Premier League.
