Chelsea Wembley
Chelsea qualified for the FA Cup final in the 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

Despite an overall promising performance by the entire Chelsea team in the 2-0 victory against Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final, only one Blue has been named in the BBC’s team of the week.

The Saints were no match for the dominant Chelsea who breezed past their opponents on Sunday to earn a spot in the FA Cup final against Manchester United.

The likes of Eden Hazard was superb in the match and it’s no surprise that Antonio Conte’s side won with the Belgian being near enough at his best.

However, BBC Sport expert Garth Crooks, who picked his team of the week, believed there was a Chelsea star that stood out more than most at Wembley.

Vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta was solid at the back and was rarely tested against a lacklustre Southampton attack. The Spaniard also assisted compatriot Alvaro Morata once again this season as Chelsea settled the match at 2-0.

Crooks’ full team of the week can be found here, do you agree with his picks from last week?
