Chelsea football club of England are through to the FA Cup final for the fourth time in five seasons after Hakim Ziyech scored a well-worked second-half goal against Manchester City on Saturday, April 17.

 

In Chelsea’s line up, Kepa was once again named in goal while Ziyech and Werner came in for Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz.

City meanwhile made eight alterations to his Man City side, with only Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Rodrigo retaining their places from the midweek win over Dortmund.

At the beginning, Chelsea exploited space behind City’s high line twice in quick succession as Ziyech had the ball in the net from Werner’s pass but the German was offside before a Ben Chilwell cross was cleared from inside the six-yard box.

At the 10th minute, Kepa made a comfortable save from Gabriel Jesus.

Unlike what many would have thought, Chelsea were playing well .

Mason Mount twice carried the ball forward from midfield with purpose and twice Fernandinho avoided a yellow card for fouls on Mount.

A couple of minutes after the restart of the second half, star player De Bruyne was injured and replaced by Phil Foden.

With 10 minutes of the second period played, Werner playing on the cusp of City’s high line got the precise pass he was looking for from Mount.

Steffen raced out of his goal made a simple square pass to Ziyech, who slid the ball into the empty net.

Not too long after the goal, Chilwell’s long pass found Ziyech but Steffen blocked the Algerian’s shot.

 

With 20 minutes left, Ruben Dias headed a presentable opening well over before Tuchel immediately made his first change, bringing Pulisic on for the excellent Mount.

Thiago Silva who felt pains in his back region was replaced by Kurt Zouma with three minutes left on the clock.

An additional five minuted were added and Pulisic scored, only to be denied by the offside flag.

Chelsea held on for a victory well deserved.

Thomas Tuchel will be the first German to manage in an FA Cup final, and he can enjoy a deserved first success over Pep Guardiola.

The Blues will now play Leicester City or Southampton in the FA Cup final on Saturday 15 May!

Nigerian singer Chidinma Ekile professionally known as Chidinma has opened up on the real reason she returned to gospel music.

Chidinma who refers to herself as “Mummy GO”, is currently signed on with the Eezee concept and has released her first gospel song titled: “Jehovah overdo”.

She regretted wasting a lot of time doing secular music, vowing never to return to it.

The end-time soldier, as she also refers to herself, added the devil had been winning for too long in her life but she wants to use all of her talents to work for her father who is in heaven.

“Our God is faithful, He never lies and He does whatever He says. So I’m here today, it’s been a long journey. I had an opportunity to spend time with Him, it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said, He has been waiting for me. So, He is happy to receive me. God has been very intentional about me.

“He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that. So, right now is the time to work for my father. He is the one who has called me I did not bring myself here.”

“As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here but I’m going into ministry in full force.

“So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted. So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time.

“The enemy has been winning for too long. I’ve had my share of influence and all of that, but now I’m using all of that, everything the enemy thought he had given to me though was given to me by God, while he was lying that he gave them to me, now I’m using all of that to work for my father.”

“So, when you see me doing some very extreme thing, just understand where I’m coming from, there is no time. There are too many people out there we have to bring back into the house.

“Jesus is coming soon, sooner than you expect. So we cannot allow them to miss out on that. Now is the time to do the work,” she said.

Only In Africa Are Politicians The Richest People – Ghanaian Actor Laments

Michael Blackson, a Hollywood actor of Ghanaian-descent has taken to social media to urge African leaders to fix the continent.

The actor and comedian stated that there is no middle class in Africa, only the rich and poor, and that the politicians are the richest people on the continent.

Specifically, Blackson said the average income in Ghana is so low, yet houses in Ghana cost more than houses in Atlanta.

He also complained about how African leaders go into leadership positions and become rich. He said the richest people in Africa are those in government but this isn’t the case in America.

He went on to say that something needs to be done about Africa to make life better for the average man.

Read his thread;

The richest people in Africa are the government officials; but in America, I know beeches on only fans that make way more than Joe Biden”

To be a leader of any country you have to be selfless, you have to care about the women and kids on the streets begging for money as if they are your family. #FixAfrica”

He continued;

“I’m so confused with what’s going on in West Africa, if the average income is $100-$200 a month why aren’t there affordable homes with mortgages ranging from $25-$50 a month?

Houses in Ghana costs more than Atlanta but the average income is less than what a crackhead gets on the street.”
