It wasn't the most entertaining of FA Cup finals between Chelsea and Manchester United at Wembley.

There seemed a lack of quality all over the pitch, but one man that did not disappoint was Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

The Belgian proved to be the match winner after winning, and then converting a penalty in the 22nd minute.

He went on to win the man-of-the-match award, proving his importance in this Chelsea side.

Chelsea will now have a fight on their hands to keep the Belgian after speculation that Real Madrid and Manchester City are interested.


Tunnel footage usually provides a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes.

The FA Cup have uploaded an 11 minute video detailing what happened in the tunnel both before, during and after the game.

And it captured a comical moment between Alexis Sanchez and Eden Hazard that would not have been seen on TV.

With the two sides walking out onto the pitch, Sanchez was given a mascot which was almost as tall as him.

Hazard noticed that and shared a joke with the Chilean international.

Fans think that Sanchez then proceeded to say 'Es muy grande', which translate to 'is very large' before swapping his mascot with Paul Pogba.

It makes for funny viewing, which you can see in the below video from 7:58.

Football fans noticed the interaction between the two players and found the situation rather amusing.


Eden Hazard has not had the best of season's, but he well and truly turned up for the FA Cup final.

And following his performance, Alan Shearer thinks that the west London club 'need' to convince Eden Hazard to stay.

"Whatever happens next with Antonio Conte, Chelsea need to sort out Eden Hazard's future too - and try to convince him to stay at the club," he said.

"The Belgium forward has got two years left on his contract but he knows that if he wants to leave, he can do.

"Real Madrid and Manchester City are supposedly interested, and understandably so. He showed again he is a game-changer with his winner in the FA Cup final on Saturday and he is good enough to go wherever he wants to."
