Chelsea 1-0 Manchester City: Chelsea booked their place in the FA Cup final with a narrow 1-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday evening at Wembley.

After a cagey first-half, which was dominated by the Blues, Hakim Ziyech opened proceedings after tapping in from Timo Werner’s squared ball as the west Londoners took a much-deserved lead against Pep Guardiola’s tired and sub-par side.

Thomas Tuchel’s side defended with intent throughout the game and they were rightfully rewarded with an FA Cup final spot after a brilliant all-round display against the Premier League leaders.

Pep Guardiola always played down the chances of what many regarded as the Holy Grail of winning all four big trophies – the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup and the League Cup.

And he was proved right as City finally ran out of energy and inspiration at Wembley.

City are back here in eight days to play Spurs in the League Cup final, the Premier League is effectively sewn up, and they face Paris St-Germain in the Champions League semi-final.

This still has the potential to be magnificent campaign – the most spectacular and successful in Manchester City’s history – but there will be no quadruple.

Guardiola made eight changes here after the win away to Borussia Dortmund, although you could hardly describe the side he sent out as weakened.

City, however, just lacked spark. Raheem Sterling was subdued once more and Guardiola will anxiously await the medical report on the injured De Bruyne.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC Sport: “We played a good last 15 minutes. We had struggled to find our place in the pockets but congratulations to Chelsea in a tight game.”
