Chelsea beat Southampton to face Man United in FA Cup final
A flash of attacking brilliance from Olivier Giroud and an emphatic header from substitute Alvaro Morata earned Chelsea a 2-0 win over struggling Southampton at Wembley on Sunday (April 22) and an FA Cup final date with Manchester United next month.
Giroud muscled and dribbled past three defenders and flailing keeper Alex McCarthy seconds into the second half to poke the ball home from a pass by the ever-busy Eden Hazard.
Morata, who came on for Giroud, made it two in the 82nd minute, nodding Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross into the net
Relegation-threatened Southampton were outplayed for most of the match, their best chance coming late on when Charlie Austin struck the post from a narrow angle.
