Eden Hazard Penalty Settles Fa Cup Final As Chelsea Edge Chelsea Fa Cup Tickets

FULL TIME: Chelsea 1 (Hazard 22′ PEN) Man Utd 0 his is the kind of day by which Antonio Conte will like to remember his time at Chelsea, if indeed it is to end after two seasons and two major trophies, with a cup in his hand, champagne in his hair and his old enemy Jose Mourinho wondering how easily he let a final slip away. Both men have had the great advantage of managing Eden Hazard and both have seemed to disapprove at times of the mercurial Belgian and his rare, unpredictable talent – but on this day there was no questioning the great quality of Chelsea’s No 10. As he ran away from Phil Jones on 21 minutes, trailing the Englishman like an old rig pursuing a sail boat in a breezy bay, one wondered what he might do to England when Belgium meet them in the World Cup next month. This was a dreadful final but you were left with the impression that Hazard remains a great player in an era when what it means to be the best has been taken to new levels by the two stars of the Spanish game. He stroked in the 22nd-minute penalty that decided the game as if he were posting his neighbour’s mail, and although United got to grips with him better in the second half the damage was already done. United were woeful in the first half, although Mourinho did not see it that way. “I’m quite curious today, tomorrow, the next couple of days to read, to watch, to listen to your opinions,” he said in his press conference, “especially because now I’m on holidays and I have more time for that. ” Of course, he did not mean any of that, it was simply a way of dealing with the inevitable questions about such a lacklustre performance and portraying himself as stoical and misunderstood.
