Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea endured a Wembley nightmare as Chelsea strolled to victory and set up an FA Cup final date with Arsenal .
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ditched his usual FA Cup keeper Sergio Romero to keep faith with De Gea – but the experienced Spain international produced two horrendous errors either side of half -time to gift Chelsea two goals .
De Gea made a flimsy attempt to deal with Olivier Giroud’s flick in first – half stoppage time then weakly fumbled Mason Mount’ s tame 20 -yard shot into the net moments after the restart .
Chelsea ’s excellent performance fully merited this victory and United ’s abject misery after a dreadful performance was complete when captain Harry Maguire diverted Marcos Alonso’ s cross into his own net at the near post with 16 minutes left .
Frank Lampard ’ s side were in complete control from first to last as they comprehensively ended
Manchester United ’s 19 -match unbeaten run in all competitions .
Bruno Fernandes pulled a goal back from the penalty spot late on after Callum Hudson – Odoi fouled Anthony Martial but it could not even be described as a consolation as Chelsea closed out the win.
