Just days after shrouding his Chelsea future in doubt, Eden Hazard fired home the penalty to ensure Chelsea's season did not end trophyless with the 2018 FA Cup adding to their accolades.
José Mourinho tried to nullify the threat of Hazard with a tactic which had previously been successful: using Ander Herrera in a man marking role. However the Belgian Number 10 outsmarted his former boss by dragging Herrera further back the pitch, removing the Spaniard from the three man midfield which unlocks Paul Pogba. Perhaps that was the reason behind United's lack of drive in the first half. They failed to reply to Chelsea's penalty earnt and scored by the same player until after the interval. Sanchez thought he had levelled proceedings but his goal was correctly adjudged to have been offside thanks to VAR, whilst Courtois was equal to a Marcus Rashford effort. Pogba had United's best opportunity late on, but his free header failed to hit the target. May 19 - 3:02 PM
