Chelsea beat City 1-0 to reach FA Cup final

Chelsea ended Manchester City’s hopes of winning an historic quadruple as they edged a closely-fought FA Cup semi-final 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday.

Both sides had secured their places in the last four of the Champions League this week – but Pep Guardiola’s Citizens had their sights set on a unique haul of four trophies as they close in on the Premier League title and also face Tottenham here in the League Cup final on 25 April.

Chelsea didn’t read the script, however, as Hakim Ziyech slid home Timo Werner’s pass in the 55th minute to swing the tie the Blues’ way.

Ziyech had a goal ruled out for offside before he scored but that was enough to beat a lethargic City, who made eight changes from their Champions League win against Borussia Dortmund.

Substitute Christian Pulisic also had a brilliant late goal ruled out for offside, while Chelsea had a very late scare as keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga clawed away Rodri’s injury-time header.

Thomas Tuchel’s men will now face either Leicester City or Southampton in the FA Cup final.
