Watch Full Highlight: Chelsea 2-0 Sheffield United

Chelsea have progress to the next round of FA Cup competitions after defeated Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues secured the FA Cup semi-finals for the fourth time in five seasons, thanks to Ben Chilwell’s stunning strike that caused Oliver Norwood own goal and a late strike from Monaco creator Hakim Ziyech.

The victory at Stamford Bridge extended Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten start in London – the German coach has now won 10 matches and drawn four in all competitions since replacing Frank Lampard in January.

Meanwhile, the Blues have drawn against Manchester City in semi-finals of the competitions and Southampton will face Leicester City, who defeated Manchester United 3-1 this evening.

Iheanacho opened the scoring for Leicester City after a howler from Fred in the 24th minute. The midfielder’s back pass did not reach goalkeeper Dean Henderson as United tried to play their way out of defence and Iheanacho quickly got in to round Henderson and score.

United starlet Mason Greenwood scored an equalised goal in the 38th when he swept in Paul Pogba’s cross after Donny Van De Beek’s dummy.

Youri Tielemans restored Leicester’s lead when he ended his driving run by drilling low into the corner in the 52nd minute. United made four changes at once in the 64th – including Pogba coming off – but Iheanacho grabbed his second goal in the 78th minutes when he was left unmarked to head in Marc Albrighton’s free kick.

The semi-final will be played on the weekend of 17/18 April at Wembley, with the winners facing either Leicester or Southampton in the Final.
