Chelsea took the lead twice, gave up the lead twice, then won it through Hazard and absolute wondergoal from Nemanja Matić.  What a game, what a win!

Chelsea getting it done at Wembley once again.

  • Several bold decisions by Conte in this one, including a surprise start for Michy Batshuayi, keeping Hazard & Costa on the bench, finally giving Aké his chance, using two subs very early (60th minute) and using his final sub with over 15 minutes left.
  • Willian reaches double digits in goals with today's brace.  He really does hate Tottenham!
  • Chelsea are into the final, to be played on May 27.  Our opponents will be either Manchester City or Arsenal.  They play tomorrow.
  • Just as in 2012, a six-goal thriller between Spurs and Chelsea.  Just as in 2012, Chelsea make the final.
  • Psychological boost for the Blues too, in the title race surely.
  • Next game: Southampton on Tuesday.  Let's carry on this momentum.
