Imphal, July 20:

Chelsea defeated Manchester Utd 3-1 at Wembley on Sunday and will face its city rival Arsenal for the coveted FA Cup on August 1st . The game’s highlight were the howlers from the Manchester Utd custodian David De Gea whose pedigree of commanding a whooping fee and being the highest in the league, was brought to naught by Frank Lampard coached side. David De Gea’s shaky form since the beginning of the year continued and his misery was compounded by an own goal from Hary Maguire.
Chelsea dominated the proceedings and shook the net as early as 11th minute when a cross from the right by Captain Cesar Azpilicueta cross was flicked by an in form Frenchmen Giroud into the net. De Gea got his hands on the ball but not enough to stop the ball from spinning over the line at his near post. David’s night worsened after English International Mason Mount who latched on to a poor pass from Brandon Williams sent a long ranger and which would have been a routine save for the Spainiard, but end up only steering into the corner of the net in the 46th minute. Utd Captain Hary Maguire’s own goal in 74th minute when he diverted Marcos Alonso’s cross into his own net was the final blow to what would be regarded as an abject display by the Reds. Bruno Fernandes pulled a goal back from the penalty spot late on after Callum Hudson-Odoi fouled Anthony Martial but it could not even be described as a consolation as Chelsea closed out the win to fix a final clash against its London rival Arsenal.
