6 things we saw as Chelsea beat Man City 1-0 to secure a place in the final of the FA Cup

The semifinals of the FA Cup between Manchester City Vs Chelsea took place today at Wembley and here's what we saw from the match.

1. Strong Lineup For Both Teams

With both teams looking to secure a place in the final, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel both named a strong Lineup. For City, they had Torres, Sterling & Jesus in attack while for Chelsea, they fielded Ziyech - Mount - Werner in attack.

2. It was a quite first-half which ended 0-0 and only Gabriel Jesus had a shot on target. 

3. De Bryne Substituted After Getting Injured

Blow for Mancity as key player, De Bryne was substituted after the start of the second half. And was replaced by Phil Foden after he picked up an injury which looked like an ankle problem.

4. Chelsea Break The Deadlock

A fine squared ball from Timo Werner to Hakim Ziyech saw the Chelsea player tap into an empty net to give them the lead in the match.

5. Chelsea had a chance yet again from Ziyech to double their lead in the match, but Ziyech couldn't finish it off

6. That goal from Ziyech saw Chelsea edge Mancity 1-0 and book their spot in the FA Cup final.

Chelsea would now go on to face either one of Southampton or Leicester in the final at Wembley.
