1 of 1

Chelsea secured a place in next month’s FA Cup final with a comfortable 2-0 win over Southampton and it's a pick 'em for their showdown with Manchester United at Wembley on May 19.

Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata bagged second-half goals for the London side who can be backed evens to lift the trophy with United marginal favourites at 10-11, although some firms couldn't split them on Sunday night.

Man United beat Tottenham 2-1 in the first semi-final on Saturday and are looking to equal Arsenal’s record of 13 FA Cup triumphs.

Southampton rarely troubled Chelsea and will turn their attention to Premier League survival.

Saints are 18th, four points adrift of safety with four games left to play and are 4-9 with Betfred to be playing in the Sky Bet Championship next season.

Stoke are 1-9 to go down after they could only draw 1-1 at home to Burnley, while Swansea are 7-2 to take up one of the remaining relegation places, with West Brom at 1-250 all but down.
