Ba's beautiful goal snares Chelsea FA Cup win against Man U

CHELSEA'S love affair with the FA Cup continued after Demba Ba's stunning goal secured the defending champion a 1-0 win over Manchester United in their sixth-round replay at Stamford Bridge.

Keeper Petr Cech provided some magic at the other end of the pitch for Chelsea, producing a miracle save to keep out Javier Hernandez's goal-bound diving header.

The Blues, who have won the Cup four times in the past six seasons, will play Manchester City in the semi-finals on April 14.

Elsewhere, second-last QPR moved another step closer to relegation after losing 3-2 at Fulham.
