FA Cup: Chelsea secure semi-final spot against Leicester with late drama

Chelsea picked their ticket in the FA Cup semi-finals with a 4-2 win over Leicester City, but not without some late drama.

The match started positively for the Blues, with Marc Cucurella opening the scoring in the 14th minute.

However, a missed penalty by Raheem Sterling kept the game within reach for Leicester.

Despite dominating possession, Chelsea’s lead was only doubled just before halftime when Cole Palmer tapped in a pass from Sterling.

The second half saw a rapid response from Leicester, with Chelsea’s Axel Disasi scoring an own-goal in the 51st minute.

It was followed minutes later with Stephy Mavididi’s strike, after dribbling through Malo Gusto.

With the match pegged at 2-2, some tactical changes made by Mauricio Pochettino handed Chelsea the win, including the addition of Carney Chukwumeka and Noni Madueke.

Palmer made a sleek backheel pass in a one-two combo with Chukwumeka, who slotted home with a powerful shot at close range.

Chelsea sealed the win with a spectacular lob from second substitute, Madueke, in added time.

The win comes as a relief for Chelsea, who suffered a last-gasp defeat to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final earlier recently.
