FA Cup Final 2018: Chelsea Beat Manchester United To Win FA Cup - Photos

It was a hard forth victory today being the 19th of May 2018 (FA Cup Final) as Eden Hazard's first half penalty secured Chelsea the FA Cup for the eighth time as they beat Manchester United in what could be Antonio Conte's final match in charge.

Chelsea defeated Manchester United by 1-0 in the FA Cup final played at the England's  Wembley stadium, thank to the Belgium international's superb control from a counter attack beat Phil Jones as he raced clear on a one-on-one situation with De Gea. Jones fouled Hazard in the box as a penalty was awarded to Chelsea and Hazard sends De Gea the wrong way to score the only goal of the match.

Chelsea play maker, Hazard sent goalkeeper David de Gea the wrong way having won the kick when brought down by Phil Jones. Man United, having offered minimal attacking threat in the first half, were much better in the second.

Alexis Sanchez had a goal ruled out for straying just offside - referee Michael Oliver using VAR (technology) to confirm the call. Thibaut Courtois later denied Marcus Rashford, before Paul Pogba headed wide with a clear chance from a corner.

Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial, who had both been doubts for the final because of injury, appeared as substitutes for the final 17 minutes, but United were unable to find an equaliser.
