Chelsea will battle London rivals Arsenal in the final of this year's FA Cup championship following their 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

Olivier Giroud put the Blues ahead in the added time of the opening half with a close tap-in from Cesar Azpilicueta's superb cross.

The Frenchman watched the move from the defender and quickly made a run into United's danger zone before connecting with the ball that handed his side the lead.

Ole Gunnar Solsjaer's men had a couple of chances just before conceding their first but Bruno Fernandes was a bit wasteful and the missed chances came back to haunt them eventually.

Barely 60 seconds into resumption, Mason Mount, doubled the visitors' lead with a resounding shot that slipped off David De Gea's grip.

The English player drove towards the edge of the box before unleashing the thunder that got past United's keeper before strolling into the net.

It got a pretty bad for the Old Trafford outfit as the world's most expensive defender Harry Maguire scored an own goal to put Chelsea three goals up in the 74th minute.

However, Fernandes got a chance to reduce his side's deficit via the spot-kick in the 86th minute after Callum Hodson-Odoi fouled Anthony Martial in his 18-yard box.
