It's halftime at the New Wembley Stadium and it's Chelsea who have their noses ahead courtesy of an Oliver Giroud's flick at the stroke of halftime. 

Both managers had started with a rather fringe 3 at the back formation. But it was Ole's that was stranger as he made a couple of changes to the eleven that has kept them since the restart.

Odion Ighalo had scored 3 goals in his 2 Fa Cup appearances for United, but was left out as Ole preferred Rashford and James up front. Caballero started ahead of Kepa for the blues, and Pulisic missing out with a slight knock As expected, both teams started cautiously, switching dominations at intervals. But it was Chelsea that started brighter with the ball, though had very few attempts to show for it. Proceedings soon changed after the drinks break as United came out better, and Fernandes forced a good save from Caballero off a set piece.Bailly was subbed off for Martial in a tactical substitution following an injury to the latter and Chelsea wasted no time to take the lead. 

Off a sloppy break from the right, Oliver Giroud found himself in an ample of space to put Caesar Azpilicueta's cross behind De Gea. De Gea would have done better with the ball which he parried into the net, and more blames should go to Lindelof and Maguire who escorted Giroud into the box but could barely do nothing about the ball. See how the fans are reacting.
