Creativity, teamwork and much more - Hazard's superb semi-final

The Emirates FA Cup

It still feels odd to see Olivier Giroud in the blue of Chelsea rather than the red of Arsenal.

Mark Hughes men are 18th and are hoping to pick up some momentum heading into their final four games.

Lately, the 27-year-old has been impressive for Chelsea and will be looking to continue the form when they travel to the Liberty Stadium to tackle Swansea City on April 28.

'We kept it at 0-0 and then after 30 seconds in the second half you concede a goal which is nearly impossible.

'It was necessary that we tried to succeed in the ultimate, so it offers us a very good alternative now.

"If you eat caviar every day it is hard to return to sausages", Arsene Wenger once famously said, and this sentiment seems to apply to their London neighbours this year.

Cesar Azpilicueta sent in a bending cross from about 25 yards out on that play.

Now in League One, Portsmouth fans have not had a lot to celebrate in the decade since, but yesterday they were toasting a big loss by rivals Southampton. The problem, though, was that they were provided with such little service. "You can do it at 1-0, otherwise it's humiliating for us". Two attacking midfielders, Redmond and Tadic, were summoned in place of Long and central midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as Saints switched to 3-4-3, briefly matching Chelsea's system.

Here are three takeaways from the game against Chelsea.

Southampton were not quite done and Austin slid in to fire a shot across goal which hit the far post, while at the other end Morata's scuffed effort was hacked off the line by centre-half Wesley Hoedt. Ultimately, the difference here was up front: Chelsea's strikers found the target while Saints' did not.

'Now it's important to try and finish the season as strongly as possible in the best possible way.

He said: "Another final, an FA Cup".

Chelsea will meet Jose Mourinho's United at Wembley on May 19 after the Manchester side beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the first semi-final on Saturday.

Dele Alli stunned United with Spurs' opener in the 11th minute but Sanchez soon brought the sides level as he headed home Paul Pogba's enticing cross in the 24th minute.

Mourinho will surely be pressuring the Man United board to spend heavily in order to compete with their Manchester rivals. Now, they will put every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears into remaining in the Premier League.
