Chelsea extend unbeaten run to reach FA Cup semi-finals, Benevento shock Juventus

CHELSEA took their unbeaten run under Thomas Tuchel to 14 games on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge.

The eight-time winners also reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup with the victory.

Chelsea, who were beaten finalists last season, took the lead on Sunday through an Oliver Norwood own goal after the Sheffield United midfielder directed Ben Chilwell’s low cross into his own net.

Christian Pulisic then saw two of his efforts saved by Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

David McGoldrick had a great opportunity  to pull Sheffield United level but he headed wide from close range following John Lundstram’s right-wing cross.

While Sheffield United were desperately going for the equaliser and threw everyone forward, Chelsea broke away in injury time and Hakim Ziyech sealed the win with a low finish to take the Blues into their fourth FA Cup semi-final in five seasons.

Chelsea join Southampton and Manchester City in the semi-finals scheduled for Wembley Stadium on 17 April and 18 April. The semi-final draw will held during the half-time of Sunday’s last quarter-final between Leicester City and Manchester United.

Chelsea were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the 2020 final in August.

Meanwhile, also on Sunday, Juventus all but conceded the Serie A title after a huge upset defeat to Benevento.

The Serie A champions, who have won the last nine Italian top flight titles in a row, lost 1-0 at home to the strugglers courtesy of Adolfo Gaich’s 69th minute goal.

Juventus are third in Serie A, 10 points behind leaders Inter Milan with 11 rounds of games to end the campaign. Benevento are 16th.
