Morocco international Hakim Ziyech fired Chelsea to a 1-0 win over Manchester City at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and into the 2021 FA Cup final.

Ziyech, 28, scored the only goal of the game in the 55th minute of the match. A quick counter-attack gave Timo Werner an open path to goal and with only the goalkeeper to beat he passed the ball to the former Ajax Amsterdam midfielder, who made no mistake from close range.

The goal was Ziyech’s fifth in 30 matches across all competitions for Chelsea this season.

Chelsea have won the FA Cup on eight occasions and have now reached the final in four of the last five seasons. They lost to Arsenal in 2017 and 2020 but beat Manchester United in the 2018 final.

The Blues will face either Leicester City or Southampton in next month’s final.
