Chelsea stunned Tottenham Hotspur with a 4-2 win at Wembley, as Eden Hazard came off the bench to ensure the Blues qualify ahead.
Before the game started, Antonio Conte made a bizarre decision of playing Michy Batshuayi on such an important occasion, which did raise doubts as to whether or not Chelsea will win this one. It made it seem like Conte was somehow not giving the FA Cup its due importance and trying to focus on the Premier League, especially after a disastrous defeat by Manchester United.
However, Chelsea played a magnificent game of football in last night’s match and have earned a well-deserved spot in the final.
Conte truly is a master tactician as he used Eden Hazard and Diego Costa at a crucial time in the game when Spurs were trying to build a strong attack.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino did not enjoy such success with his tactical tweaks, especially with his decision to play Son as a left wing-back.
It must be a rather confusing situation for most of the Spurs fans and players since they did not put up a bad performance by any means last night. If anything, they actually put in an excellent performance.
In fact, the Spurs looked to have the game in their hands at 2-2 but failed to provide the sure touch in front of the goal that has changed their game so many time recently, despite dominating possession for a good amount of time.
Here are the best tweets from the match:
Spurs vs Chelsea, like when 2 pervert uncles square up at the family bbq to decide who is the biggest peadophile.

Said it last year, and I'll say it again: Spurs haven't reverted to being 'Spursy'; they've started a whole new thing of being 'Arsenaly'.
