It"s Chelsea’s eighth win in the FA Cup

Chelsea defeats Manchester United to win 2018 FA Cup


Chelsea defied speculation over the future of manager Antonio Conte by winning the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United courtesy of Eden Hazard’s first-half penalty. In what is widely expected to be Conte’s final match in charge, Chelsea finished their campaign with the Italian’s first ever domestic cup success after a defensively resilient display at Wembley.   Even though Manchester United dominated for long periods and virtually the entirety of the second half, they were unable to cancel out Hazard’s 22nd-minute spot-kick, failing to make the most of their possession by wasting several promising opportunities with profligate finishing or a poor final ball.   Chelsea were dogged in a manner reminiscent of their best under Conte, remaining compact and disciplined in the face of a sustained pressure, and supplemented by the mercurial Hazard in attack. It is Chelsea’s eighth win in the FA Cup, only United and Arsenal have won the competition more.
