Chelsea beat Man U to reach FA Cup final

By The Assam Tribune

LONDON, July 20: At least David De Gea was spared having a crowd inside Wembley to witness his latest mistakes in the Manchester United goal.

Gifted goals to beat United 3-1 on Sunday, Chelsea will be returning to the national stadium on August 1 to face Arsenal in an all-London FA Cup final.

De Gea�s first mistake came in the 11th minute of first-half stoppage time. Olivier Giroud�s close-range deft touch from Cesar Azpilicueta�s cross was pushed into his own goal by De Gea.

United, which was rocked by Eric Bailly being hospitalized with a first-half head injury, returned to the field early for the start of the second half but was just as sloppy.

Diving to his left, De Gea let Mason Mount�s long-range strike go through his gloves. There was shared United culpability for the 46th-minute goal since Brandon Williams gave the ball away around the halfway line with a misplaced pass that Mount seized on.

�David knows he should have saved the second goal but that�s done now,� United manager Ole Gunnar Solskar said. � AP
