Hakim Ziyech second-half gola saw Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 on Saturday to book a place in next month's FA Cup final. The win has extended the team's remarkable turnaround which started since manager Thomas Tuchel took over as Blues coach in January.

In a contrasting scenriao, City manager Pep Guardiola - who made eight changes to the side which beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek - saw his quadruple dream get crushed by Chelsea.

Eight-times FA Cup winners Chelsea face Leicester City or Southampton, who play their semi-final on Sunday, in the showpiece match on May 15. It will be the Stamford Bridge side's fourth apperaance in the final in the past five seasons.

Ziyech scored in the 55th minute when he tapped into an empty net from a cross by Timo Werner with City goalkeeper Zack Steffen in no man's land after racing off his line to close Werner down but then seeming to change his mind.

"You always have to have the feeling before the game that you want to score," the Morocco winger - who has struggled to find his form after arriving at Stamford Bridge from Ajax Amsterdam last year - told the BBC.
