Chelsea booked their spot in the FA Cup semis after salvaging a 2-0 hard-fought win over struggling Sheffield United on Sunday, March 21, at Stamford Bridge.

The match came at a time the Blues are enjoying a revival under Thomas Tuchel who remain unbeaten since taking charge.

The unbeaten run includes their 3-0 aggregate win over Atletico that booked them a slot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League earlier in the week.

But they knew too well they would progress further in the FA Cup with a victory against the Blades at home as they push to cart home a silverware this season.

Chances were far and wide in the run-up to the goal, with both teams enjoying some good possession that neither made the count.

Chelsea, who have conceded just twice since the arrival of Tuchel did enough to stop their visitors, adding a winner at the death through Hakim Ziyech.

The win earned them a spot in the last four of the competition they reached the finals last season, joining Man City who booked their place on Saturday, March 20, after a hard-fought win over Everton.
