Relive Crystal Palace's road to Wembley with all the magical goals in animated GIFs.

Crystal Palace began their 2016 FA Cup campaign with a trip to Premier League rivals Southampton for the second year running.

Southampton 1-2 Crystal Palace

Joel Ward got the scoring underway with a neat finish, but it wasn't long before Oriol Romeu levelled matters for the Saints.

Wilfried Zaha then notched his first FA Cup strike of the season in spectacular fashion as the Eagles ran out 2-1 winners on the south coast.


Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke City

Palace played what turned out to be their only home match in this season's FA Cup run when Stoke came to town. Zaha used brilliant trickery to expertly dispatch his second successive cup goal at Selhurst Park.


Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Crystal Palace

A mazy Zaha run set up the unlikeliest of scorers in right back Martin Kelly to blast home his first goal since November 2011 at Spurs and send the Eagles into the last eight.


Reading 0-2 Crystal Palace

Palace won a spot in their first FA Cup semi-final for 21 years by beating Championship side Reading in a hard-fought tie. Reading's Jake Cooper was sent off for pulling back Yannick Bolasie in the box and Yohan Cabaye coolly converted the resulting penalty.

Fraizer Campbell's stoppage-time strike sealed the win after good work from Zaha and Emmanuel Adebayor.


Crystal Palace 2-1 Watford

Palace and Watford met at Wembley once more in the semi-final and the Eagles came out on top again. Bolasie's 6th-minute headed goal, in a carbon copy of Alan Pardew's 1990 semi-final winner, gave Palace the lead.

Troy Deeney nodded in an equaliser for the Hornets just after the restart. But Connor Wickham diverted home Pape Souare's cross to secure Palace's place in the FA Cup final for the first time in 26 years.


And here's how Man United got to this year's final...
