What was Witnessed in Chelsea's 1-0 Win Against Manchester City in the FA Cup

Chelsea met Manchester City in the first semi-final game of the FA cup. The two managers named strong squads for the game. The game started on very high note in the first half. Chelsea had very good chances and the players played very well. The Blues got the first goal but it was disallowed. The game ended 0-0 in the first half.

The second half started on a very high note. Manchester City players improved on their game but it was still not enough. The woes of the club increased when Kevin De Bruyne got injured and Pep Guardiola was forced to make a substitution. Phil Foden was put in his place. Chelsea took advantage of everything. Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner combined very well in order to get Chelsea’s first goal.

Hakim Ziyech scored a brilliant goal and Benjamin Mendy was not in a position to recover. This goal made Manchester City to make another change. Ferran Torres was substituted and his place was taken by Ilkay Gundogan. Mason Mount did not have a very great game, he was substituted and his place was taken by Christian Pulisic. The American international player played very well and he even scored another goal, but the goal was ruled out because he was in an offside position.

Hakim Ziyech who scored the only goal in that game was also substituted and his place was taken by Emerson. Timo Werner failed to score again despite the fact that he had several open chances. He was also substituted and his place was taken by Kai Havertz. Chelsea got another injury scare after Thiago Silva got injured and he was replaced by Kurt Zouma. The game ended 1-0 in favor of Chelsea. This means that Manchester City lost the opportunity to also clinch the FA Cup this season.
