Moses stars as Chelsea set up FA Cup final with Man Utd

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses was on from the start to finish as Chelsea eased past Southampton to set up a meeting with Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

After a goalless first half, Oliver Giroud dribbled past two defenders and fired Chelsea ahead one minute into the second half from a sweet pass from Eden Hazard.

With 10 minutes to go, Alvaro Morata came in for Giroud, and on 82 minutes, the Spaniard headed in a cross to seal a safe passage for Chelsea.

Southampton had some chances throughout the game and went really close when Charlie Austin hit the post.

The victory means Chelsea will come up against Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils in the final at Wembley on May 19.

The final is also repeat of 2007 when Mourinho was at Chelsea and won 1-0 over United.
