Chelsea have beaten Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup. They did it a rather laborious manner but it counts all the same!

  • That was easier than one would expect.
  • Bakayoko showing signs of improvement, which surely bodes well for next season.
  • All’s well that ends well but I’m a little surprised Cesc Fabregas made it through 90 minutes.
  • Eden Hazard. Please never leave.
  • Chelsea sat back for practically all of the second half but soaked up the pressure, with some help from a couple of great moments from Thibaut Courtois.
  • May 19th is a decent date, eh?
  • Just to take another moment to appreciate the fact that we’ve 1-0’d Jose Mourinho in a cup final. Hah!
  • Antonio Conte’s second trophy with Chelsea, and his first ever cup win.
  • It wasn’t pretty but we got there in the end. CHAMPIONS!
