Chelsea will play Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup after defeating Sheffield United 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Mateo Kovacic has been brilliant for Chelsea since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel and the midfielder produced an outstanding piece of skill against Sheffield United.

In the first-half of the game against Sheffield United, Kovacic had the ball headed into his path by Emerson Palmieri. Under pressure from Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram, Kovacic produced a sensational flick to flick the ball over the Sheffield player’s head and get away from the former Oxford United to help retain possession for the Blues.

It’s definitely a piece of skill Brazilian legend Ronaldinho would be proud of.
