by -

Chelsea have won their 8th FA Cup with 1-0 win over Manchester United thanks to a penalty converted by Eden Hazard in the first half.

A very tight game, tactically well-played by both teams were also Thibaut Courtois was among the protagonists, with at least 3 crucial saves that denied the equaliser for the Red Devils, especially on Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.

The penalty chance came from a master-class pass by Cesc Fabregas to Eden Hazard, who went beyond Phil Jones with a speedup of his: the England international tried to stop before he kicked the ball in the goal but he ended up committing a clear penalty foul.

The Belgian scored with a perfect shot and this, eventually, was the goal who gave Chelsea the cup.
