We're going to have an all London FA Cup Final and Wembley on August 1! After Arsenal stunned Manchester City on Saturday 2-0, Chelsea followed that up with an incredible performance against Manchester United.
On Sunday, the Blues truly dominated United, leaving the stadium with a strong 3-1 win. From start to finish, this was all Chelsea.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in stoppage time of the first half with a brilliant effort which somehow made its way past David De Gea. At the halftime break, Chelsea was up 1-0.
Right at the start of the second half, Chelsea doubled its lead in the 46th minute when Mason Mount fired off a shot which looked like it'd be saved by De Gea. Instead, the United keeper had a moment to forget, letting the ball bounce off his fingertips to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead.
Low & hard from Mason Mount! 👊#EmiratesFACup #MUNCHE pic.twitter.com/8DZE2TnmWB— The Emirates FA Cup (@EmiratesFACup) July 19, 2020
Then in the 74th minute, Chelsea went up 3-0 after an own goal was produced by United's Harry Maguire, who himself had a rough day on the pitch. United couldn't really muster anything up throughout the game, but earned a penalty kick late and closed the scoring at 3-1 with a goal from Bruno Fernandes.
It was far too little too late for Man United, as Chelsea celebrated after the final whistle following such a brilliant performance. Now, Chelsea will look to lift the FA Cup once again early next month. It should be a great showdown between them and the Gunners.
