A second-half strike from N’Golo Kante gave Chelsea a 1-0 win over holders Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge.
In a frantic cup-tie, United had been reduced to ten-men with Ander Herrera harshly given two yellow cards in the first-half.
Jose Mourinho’s side were giving as good as they got before Kante’s broke the deadlock on just six minutes into the second period.
Up-until Herrera’s dismissal the game had been a fascinating contest with United taking the game to Chelsea – although David Gea pulled off two great saves to deny Eden Hazard and Gary Cahill.

Down to ten-men and a goal-down United could still have levelled when Marcus Rashford – playing as a lone-striker – did brilliant to turn David Luiz and then beat Gary Cahill, but Thibaut Courtois produced an excellent stop.
The result booked Chelsea’s place in the final four, and they drew Tottenham, which left Arsenal to take on Manchester City.
