Chelsea reach the 2018 FA Cup Final. Chelsea faces Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday 19th May, 2018.
Olivier Giroud‚Äôs brilliant semi-final goal helped Chelsea beat Southampton to reach the FA Cup final and set up a meeting with Manchester United.
Chelsea striker Giroud received the ball from Eden Hazard and jinked his way past two Southampton players in a crowded area before he stabbed the ball home.
Giroud was replaced by Alvaro Morata with 10 minutes to go and the substitute sealed safe passage with Chelsea‚Äôs second when he headed in at the back post from Cesar Azpilicueta‚Äôs cross.
Southampton went close with Nathan Redmond‚Äôs low drive from distance while Charlie Austin hit the post. It means Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will come up against managerial adversary Jose Mourinho at Wembley on 19 May.
There is no love lost between Conte and former Chelsea manager Mourinho, who have traded insults throughout the season. The final is also repeat of 2007 when Mourinho guided Chelsea to a 1-0 victory over United in the first to be played at the rebuilt Wembley.
