Manchester United won't play reserves at Chelsea in FA Cup - Jose Mourinho

Alyssa BaileyMar 14, 2017

N'Golo Kante broke the deadlock early in the second half when he fired home a low strike into the bottom corner and past an outstretched David De Gea.

"But we can not go to Stamford Bridge with a Nicky Butt team".

United should have been level in the 58th minute, as Rashford was left one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois, but the striker fired straight at the Blues shot-stopper.

Since the aforementioned FA Cup quarter-final, Man United have beaten just Chelsea just three times - once each in 2002, 2011 and 2012.

As the pace of the game and, indeed, the noise around the ground began to settle down, a small section of Chelsea fans near the away dugout decided to make their thoughts on their former manager clear.

Conte's wild touchline celebrations of his team's goals irked Mourinho in October and the United boss accused his rival of deliberately stirring up the Chelsea fans, who taunted their former idol with chants of "you're not special anymore".

Standing inside his technical area at that moment in time, Mourinho is seen to turn towards them in the footage below before holding up three fingers - one for every Premier League title he guided Chelsea to during his two spells with the club.

Herrera's dismissal for two fouls on Eden Hazard gave the advantage to the Blues midway through the first half.

Man with axe 'injures several in Dusseldorf train station rampage'
Terrified passengers took to social media to say the situation inside the station "looked bad" shortly after the attack. Two people have been arrested after an "ax rampage" at a major train station left at least four people injured.

The tempo of the game died down following Herrera's sending off, as the sides went into the break with the score locked at 0-0.

From that chance, Chelsea launched a swift counter-attack which almost resulted in Diego Costa scoring another Chelsea goal but the Spain worldwide could only head wide before Willian combined with Kante and fired over in the 61st minute.

Man City are now in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and look forward to playing in famous Wembley says Pep Guardiola.
