It took just five minutes for the first goal to be scored in the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham at Wembley.

Spurs suffered an immediate bad omen when Toby Alderweireld, usually so assured at the back, took out Pedro and earned an early yellow card. Chelsea were awarded a free-kick and Willian struck it brilliantly to give the Blues the lead.

Some blamed Hugo Lloris for stepping across his goal, but it was a decent strike.

Tottenham responded relatively quickly and were level before the 20-minute mark. Christian Eriksen’s cross was headed in brilliantly by Harry Kane.
