Chelsea attacker Pedro feeling 'strange' after headed goal

Chelsea attacker Pedro feeling 'strange' after headed goal

Morata makes his first start for Antonio Conte's side since the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on February 25.

The win ended a run of five away matches without success and Chelsea will now be favourites to reach another FA Cup final. "It's good for my confidence in the team and to help us pass to the next round of the FA Cup". "We played well in the first half with good tempo and intensity, but it was end-to-end and we didn't have enough control of the game". "It is the only title we can have this season and we have to fight to the end". "This goal will be very important for the future". I'm very pleased with his performance. They played very well in every position and they showed a good attitude.

"It's very odd to score with the head!" said Pedro.

Like Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko started. In a game like this, you have to prevent a second yellow card.

Willian and Andreas Christensen were replaced in extra-time due to fatigue after their midweek exertions and Pedro made the most of his opportunity, converting N'Golo Kante's cross. It's great for him and the team.

"Due to the unregulated status of the British Council in Russian Federation , its activity is halted", the foreign ministry said. The 67-year-old had been one of Russia's most powerful figures in the years after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Puel added: "I am proud of my players because they played very well with consistency and fantastic attitude".

Pedro scored for Chelsea in extra time against Leicester City.

Last year's runners-up Chelsea have won the trophy seven times, most recently in 2012, while Southampton - in the last four for the first time since 2003 - lifted it for the only time in 1976.

Conte refused to look ahead to a second successive FA Cup final at Wembley. "When you arrive at this point of the tournament it's very hard to consider an easy game".

"Last season it was a pity to lose the final, (not) to celebrate the double with the players".

The FA Cup presents a ideal opportunity to put that right - but all four managers and clubs who will fight it out at Wembley on semi-final weekend have compelling reasons for wanting to win the famous old trophy.

Puel said: "It's a big disappointment".

"We pushed this team to concede more situations and chances than they created". We deserved a different result. "It's harsh for my squad because they gave their best".

The Foxes played well, particularly in the second half, and were unlucky to lose the tie after edging the game on the night.
