Holders Chelsea are through to the FA Cup final after Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda and Frank Lampard's second-half goals gave them a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
Villa were incensed to have first-half claims for a penalty turned down after a challenge by John Obi Mikel on Gabriel Agbonlahor in a match played on yet another poor Wembley surface.
Drogba broke the deadlock midway through the second half with his 32nd goal of the campaign before Malouda and Lampard struck in the closing minutes to give a flattering look to the scoreline.
