Chelsea cruised to the FA Cup final with an impressive 1-0 over Manchester City on Saturday.

According to Danny Murphy, Chelsea’s defence was so good that Manchester City would never have scored even if the game continued for another week.

Murphy told Daily Mail: “It is difficult to do justice to how great a defensive performance that was from Chelsea.

“With any tactical plan, it is easy to set it up on paper but to produce that level of concentration, discipline, mental energy, communication and fitness for 95 minutes against a team of Man City’s quality was magnificent.

“It reminded me of the way France held off Belgium in the second half of their World Cup semi-final. It was monumental. It is so rare to see a team create so few chances, especially a Pep Guardiola one.

“They nullified Kevin De Bruyne, one of the best passers in Europe. We didn’t see much of him because of City’s shape and discipline.

“City could still be there next week and they wouldn’t have scored.”
