  2. 'We were owed one' - Cushing

    Reaction: Man City reach Women's FA Cup final

    Man City boss Nick Cushing tells BBC One:

    "We deserved a last-minute winner because we lost to [late] winners against Chelsea before, so we were owed one.

    "I read the other day on social media that I'm under-achieving in this job... But we could go all the way to the end of this season without losing a [domestic] game.

    "It's unfortunate for the Chelsea player and the goalkeeper but I'm so proud of this team. I want this team to continue winning."

  4. Eriksson has been wonderful this year - Hayes

    Reaction: Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Emma Hayes tells BBC One:

    "We controlled the game. We were confident throughout. We didn't get out of second gear most of the time.

    "To have lost that way, for a player [Magdalena Eriksson] who has been outstanding this year, I'm so gutted for her. It's a cruel way to lose a game.

    "There are a million games she has kept us in this year. I will remind her of how wonderful she's been this year.

    "We've been beaten by a cruel own goal. Probably that lack of goals has been the story of our season."

  5. 'A cruel end to the game'

    Reaction: Man City reach Women's FA Cup final

    England and Manchester City midfielder Jill Scott tells BBC One:

    "It was crazy. It's a cruel way for the game to end.

    "We're obviously ecstatic to be going to Wembley. It was an even game.

    "I thought we were destined for extra time but I'm so happy we've got the win."

  6. FT: Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Man City celebrate.

    It means Manchester City will play West Ham United in the 2019 Women's FA Cup final on Saturday, 4 May.

  7. FT: Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    It's an extraordinary own goal that harshly settles the game. Chelsea's Magdalena Eriksson looks inconsolable after that uncharacteristic, late error.

    Several Man City players attempt to put an arm on her shoulder.

    But the hosts will celebrate this, as they beat Chelsea in the FA Cup for the first time.

    Magdalena Eriksson.

    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC One

    There’s got to be communication from the goalkeeper. Whether she shouted or not I don’t know.

    But there’s no Manchester City player near her.

  14. Post update

    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    It's an awful goal to watch. Chelsea are stunned.

  15. GOAL: Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Magdalena Eriksson, own goal

    Magdalena Eriksson.

    It's a late winner for Man City and it's a nightmare for Chelsea and their unlucky defender Magdalena Eriksson.

    Under no pressure at all from any Man City forwards, she inadvertently diverts Demi Stokes' cross past her own goalkeeper, in to the corner.

    Chelsea have had the better chances, but Man City are now surely heading for Wembley after a bizarre own goal!

    If this goes to penalties, Karen Bardsley will have researched every single penalty-taker, know exactly where they put it.

    She is always the one you wanted on your quiz team, a very intelligent lady.

  17. Post update
