FT

Chelsea 1-2 Man City
0-1 Nasri 35'
0-2 Agüero 47’
1-2 Ba 66'

Man City reach the final and will play against Wigan!

Chelsea really pushed hard for the equaliser in the last 20 minutes but they just couldn't find another goal.

This was a really very good game and advert for the FA Cup after the shameful scenes with Millwall's morons yesterday.

Any comments on todays result?

Not sure why Rafa didn't play Lampard - he is the obvious choice surely? The man has done it plenty of times before, I can understand why some Chelsea fans will be pleased to see the back of this season.

Brilliant game ,thoroughly enjoyed it. I do however expect those dissenting voices
Benitez had managed to quell will be back in force after this set back.

Kudos to the man for leaving Lampard and co on the bench,at least he's got the
gonads to make awkward decisions that most managers would shirk. I actually
thought Chelsea were far the better team with the introduction of Torres in the
second half ,and if not for some slack marking by Ivanovic and co then we could
have seen extra time....and if we're going on the precedent set by the officials
in the Arsenal v Norwich game then Kompany trying to wear Torres's shirt was
a definite penalty ,add that to City should been deservedly reduced to 10 men
and it all makes for a very different game.

Congratulations City ,and commiserations Chelsea.
