Blues through to FA Cup final ater beating ManU (1-3)

Chelsea’s quest to end the season with a trophy continues after Frank Lampard’s side booked a place in the FA Cup final for the 14th time with a deserved victory over Manchester United at Wembley.

Pedro played the final stage of the semifinal replacing Mason Mount and faces the chance of getting his second FA Cup trophy after the 17-18 triumph over Red Devils.

Goals either side of the half-time break from Olivier Giroud and Mason Mount settled this semi-final and sets up a London derby final against Arsenal. It also means Chelsea will compete for the famous old trophy in this 50th anniversary year since our first triumph in the competition back in 1970.

Lampard will feel his side were good value for their victory having controlled the game and limited United to only a few significant opportunities by utilising a back three for the first time since the restart, while creating enough themselves and capitalising on mistakes from David de Gea.

Giroud poked us in front right at the end of a first half extended following lengthy treatment needed for Eric Bailly, who departed with a head injury, before Mount doubled the cushion within a minute of the restart with a swerving strike that deceived De Gea.

An own goal from Harry Maguire made it 3-0 with 15 minutes remaining and, despite Bruno Fernandes converting a late consolation from the spot, it was the Blues who booked a return to Wembley in a fortnight for the FA Cup final against Arsenal.
