Chelsea’s 4-2 victory in the semi-finals of the FA Cup was a welcome sign for the Stamford Bridge faithful, who got quite the result despite not dominating throughout the 90 minutes. The fact that they chose to keep game-changers like Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas on the bench had something to do with that.
Nevertheless, the three players eventually came on in the second half and all had impacts; Fabregas shored up the midfield a bit more, whilst Costa provided the kind of movement Batshuayi hadn’t for most of the game. And it was Hazard’s superb goal and assist that won the game for the Blues.
Amusingly, it was Cesc Fabregas who was destroying fools off the field. Posting on Instagram to celebrate the win, the Spaniard wrote: “Another Final. Now time to focus on the league. Thanks for the amazing support yesterday!” and was asked a particularly stupid question by a Manchester United fan.
Fabregas then proceeded to shut him down with an epic reply that probably had the fan reaching for water to apply on the burned area.
