Chelsea moved into the semifinals of the FA Cup with a 1-0 home victory over Manchester United in a very ill-tempered match.Mourinho’s game plan could be summed up in three words “Kick Eden Hazard”.
Referee Michael Oliver warned captain Chris Smalling after Hazard had been at the receiving end of repeated fouls by United players – for about 35 minutes or so.Shortly after that ,Ander Herrera, already on a yellow card, tripped Hazard. It was a pretty dumb thing to do and he got his marching orders.
Cue more mayhem and a militant Mourihno not mincing his words.
N’Golo Kante scored the only goal after 51 minutes with a shot from 20 yards.
David de Gea was pretty herioc for United and made a whole bunch of brilliant saves up until that moment.
United were missing Zlatan. But Pogba went missing even though he was on the field.Mourinho has yet to figure out a way of getting him to live up to all that potential.
