Second half goals by Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata helped Chelsea to a 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday as the Blues zoomed into the final of the FA Cup for the second time in two consecutive seasons.

After failing to find a way through the Saints in the first half, Giroud gave the Blues the perfect start they craved for in the second half; scoring in the first minute after resumption.

While it was looking like Chelsea will only be relying on the goal by the French man to qualify for the final, Morata who has endured a long goals drought sealed the victory with his 82nd minute.

An epic final is now on the cards as Chelsea will be facing Manchester United, interestingly, this is the only chance of silverware for either Jose Mourinho or his opposite number Antonio Conte.
