Eden Hazard penalty settles FA Cup final as Chelsea edge past Man Utd
canada goose clothing uk FULL TIME: Chelsea 1 (Hazard 22′ PEN)Man Utd 0 canada goose clothing uk
This is the Canada Goose sale kind of day by which Antonio Conte will like to remember his time at Chelsea, if indeed it is to end after two seasons and two major trophies, with a cup in his hand, champagne in his hair and his old enemy Jose Mourinho wondering how easily he let a final slip away.
Both men have had the great advantage of managing Eden Hazard and both have seemed to disapprove at times of the mercurial Belgian and his rare, unpredictable talent but on this day there was no questioning the great quality of Chelsea’s No10. As he ran away from Phil Jones on 21 canada goose clearance minutes, trailing the Englishman like an old rig pursuing a sail boat in a breezy bay, one wondered what he mightdo to England when Belgium meet them in the World Cup next month.
canada goose outlet canada This was a dreadful final but you were left with the impression that Hazard remains a great player in an era when what it means to be the best has been taken to new levels by the two stars of the Spanish game. He stroked in the 22nd minute penalty that decided the game canada goose as if he were posting his Canada Goose online neighbour’s mail, and although United got to grips with him better in the second half the damage was already done. canada goose outlet canada
canada goose outlet houston United were woeful in the first half, although Mourinho did not see it that way. «I’m quite curious today, tomorrow, the next couple of days to read, to watch, to listen to canada goose store your opinions,» he said in his press conference, «especially because now I’m on holidays and I have more time for that.» Of course, he did not mean any of that, it was simply a way of dealing with the inevitable questions about such a lacklustre performance and portraying himself as stoical and misunderstood. canada goose outlet houston
He complained that it was Chelsea who were the more unadventurous of the two and said to the BBC that they had not deserved to win. Just after he had bemoaned Romelu Lukaku’s withdrawal, the Wembley press room sound system packed in and the sound of whining filled the room, although at that moment Mourinho was silent. It was the first time he had lost a domestic cup final in England.
canada goose outlet uk fake There were fine performances in the Chelsea shirts, from Thibaut Courtois in particular when United burst into life in the second half. It was a good day for the likes of N’Golo Kante, Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger but it was not United as they like to imagine themselves at Wembley. They had 70 minutes including stoppage time to reel in Chelsea and they failed miserably, ending the game as they began it, with no real flair in attack. canada goose outlet uk fake
canada goose outlet store montreal When the last corner sailed straight into Courtois’ gloves, Alexis Sanchez ripped off some strapping and threw it to the turf in frustration. It is a season without a trophy for Mourinho and a very dull note on which to sign off for the summer. Conte on the other hand has his second major English honour and the eighth FA Cup of Chelsea’s history, canadian goose jacket lifting them above Liverpool on seven to draw level with Tottenham Hotspur in third on the same total. canada goose outlet store montreal
canada goose discount uk Afterwards, the Chelsea manager came in wielding the phrase «serial winner» to describe himself. His intention was to portray himself as the man who had warned in the summer that the squad was not strong enough to defend its title and had subsequently got the maximum from that group of players. «If they want to continue to work with me, they know me,» he said of the club’s board. «I can’t change [the way I play]. My way is always the same.» canada goose discount uk
canada goose outlet toronto factory It sounded suspiciously like a manager daring his club to sack him, which would suit Conte nicely given that he knows Chelsea have no intention of doing things the way that he wants to. He signed off with a full defence of his record, of his two trophies in two years and the clear inference that the ball is very much in the club’s side of the court when it comes to his future. canada https://www.canadagooseisverige.com goose outlet toronto factory
What may make that decision inevitable is any breakdown in his relationship with Hazard, again the match winner and for whom Marina Granovskaia would currently sack any manager to safeguard the future of Chelsea’s brilliant No10. He faded a little after the break and was Canada Goose Jackets substituted in the last few minutes, with Chris Smalling and Ander Herrera having marked him better in the second half. By then, Canada Goose Coats On Sale however, Jones was bleeding from the head while the blood in his veins had been well and truly twisted by Hazard.
Chelsea were well organised and tight and then, when they got Hazard on Canada Goose Outlet the ball, United struggled to be the same way. He was a preoccupation for them every time and there was no one who was canada goose uk black friday similarly creative for United.
The move that earned Chelsea the winning penalty was perfect, isolating Jones with Hazard and exposing the Englishman to the impossible task of trying to stop the Belgian when he is weaving and ducking and moving forward at such a ferocious pace. Cesc Fabregas spotted the opening, curving a pass the wrong side of Jones to Hazard on the right and off he went, with those delicate changes of direction that made Jones doubt whether he ever really had him in the crosshairs.
canada goose outlet woodbury It got to the point when non intervention was no longer an option for Jones and as he thrust himself along the turf to try to get something on the ball, it felt unlikely that canada goose black friday sale when the big chap resurfaced he would do so to good news. Hazard had seen him coming, switched the ball away from him and took the foul, turned roughly upside down and deposited in the penalty area. canada goose outlet woodbury
canada goose outlet los angeles A quick and accurate call from Michael Oliver and Hazard was sizing canada goose coats up the penalty. They say that he never takes his eyes off the goalkeeper in his run up some people can break all the basic rules of playing the game, and only a few can put a goalkeeper as good as David de Gea in one corner of the goal and the ball in the other. Hazard looked more chilled than the half time drinks. canada goose outlet los angeles
goose outlet canada Marcus Rashford was anonymous in attack and even in midfield United looked sketchy in the first half. Herrera miscontrolled passes and canada goose coats on sale Nemanja Matic got caught out of position when suddenly Tiemoue Bakayoko pushed into the United area with the ball and went down in a heap. Oliver called it just right Bakayoko had tripped himself uk canada goose up. goose outlet canada
canada goose outlet sale United were better in the second half. A Sanchez goal was correctly disallowed for offside. Courtois saved from Rashford and then Marcos Alonso should have scored when Kante carried the canada goose uk shop ball up field. Mourinho took off Jesse Lingard and Rashford and sent on Lukaku and Anthony Martial to try to rescue canada goose outlet the game, although they never looked like they had it in them to win it. Mourinho was down the tunnel before Cahill raised the Cup aloft, which looked his way of distancing himself from a performance United’s fans have probably already forgotten. canada goose outlet sale

Lukaku’s putting his football clothes on and getting ready to come on. He’s even putting his boots on what the hell has he been doing the entire time? Why does he think he’s there?

canada goose outlet kokemuksia Something’s not quite working. Chelsea can be beaten but Mourinho is cautious and a little worried about their threat on the counter United need to penetrate more and find a way to break them down.
