Chelsea crush Spurs in FA Cup semi-final

9:07 am on 16 April 2012

Chelsea overran Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 to set up an FA Cup final showdown with their old rivals Liverpool after this morning's second semi-final at Wembley.

But the occasion was marred by controversy before and during the match.

A section of Chelsea's supporters chanted and jeered during a minute's silence prior to kick-off to mark the anniversary of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

And the London club benefitted from the referee's decision to allow their second goal which replays suggested should have been ruled out, and Chelsea's captain JohnTerry agreed shouldn't have been awarded.
