Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final round-up
Kelechi Iheanacho’s double fired Leicester to a 3-1 win over Manchester United and a first FA Cup semi-final in 39 years.
The in-form striker now has nine goals in his last nine games and booked a last four showdown with Southampton at Wembley next month.
Youri Tielemans – an 11/2 winning tip for Michael Beardmore – also netted to put the Foxes – four-time runners-up – a game away from their first FA Cup final since 1969.
Mason Greenwood did haul United level in the first half – after Fred’s mistake presented Iheanacho with the opener.
It was just Leicester’s second win over United in 23 years but a deserved one as they outplayed and outfought the visitors.
The Europa League is now United’s only realistic chance of a trophy this season with Manchester City unlikely to be caught in the Premier League.
Thomas Tuchel remains unbeaten as Chelsea manager, and saw his side keep a 12th clean sheet from his 14 games in charge, as they edged past Sheffield United to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.
The Blues opened the scoring through an unfortunate own goal by Oliver Norwood in the 24th minute, but really struggled to find an attacking rhythm throughout the contest.
Other than Christian Pulisic’s one-on-one opportunity early in the second half, Chelsea were on the back-foot for much of the game, as manager-less Sheffield United gave a much better account of themselves than in their last outing at Leicester, when they were thrashed 5-0.
The Blades had their chances, working Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa regularly in the second half, but the best chance of the game fell to David McGoldrick with the score at 1-0, but he squandered a diving-headed opportunity from five yards.
The visitors pushed for an equaliser and in doing so left themselves exposed, which saw Chelsea break away in stoppage time to double their lead through a neat finish from Hakim Ziyech.
The victory rounds off an excellent week for Chelsea, who qualified for the Champions League quarter finals with a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
