Woes continue as Chelsea crash out of FA Cup

The bad run of form continues for Chelsea tonight as they have gained a FA Cup exit to further deepen the increasing pressure on Maurizio Sarri.

An Ander Herrera’s goal just after the half-hour mark put the visiting United ahead in the fifth-round clash at Stamford Bridge before French international Paul Pogba doubled their lead in first-half injury time.

Once again bad defending was the biggest culprit for the Blues whose sloppy defending has blighted their season o far.

Pogba delivered a fine cross from the left after a neat build-up play by the visitors, and Herrera dazzled between David Luiz and Marcos Alonso to head in from close range, whilst a cross from the opposite flank resulted in the second goal as Pogba arrived between Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger to nod home.

Both teams had threatened during a lively opening 25 minutes, with united creating some chances however Chelsea pressed and Eden Hazard steered a right-footed shot wide after cleverly exchanging passes with Alonso near the edge of the penalty area.

United responded, with the two goals that the Sarri side trying to find a way back in the second half but United defended superbly.
And the home crowd turned on head coach Sarri when he made a strange-looking late substitution, bringing Davide Zappacosta on for Azpilicueta.

Callum Hudson-Odoi remained on the bench, again overlooked.
