Chelsea beat Leicester City 4-2 in the FA Cup, to book a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup where they will face Manchester City at Wembley.

For the second time this season, Chelsea will play at Wembley, and Mauricio Pochettino believes this is a sign of progress.

Chelsea have been poor in the league, and are currently 11th in the standings, but Mauricio Pochettino believes that two appearances at Wembley is a sign that the team is heading in the right direction.

“People should understand that we are building [a] new Chelsea. Now look, 9 months here… we go to Wembley two times in two different competitions,” Pochettino has said.

“We need to enjoy and we need to trust more.”

Pochettino also said: “We fully deserve to be in Wembley and we will now go back to Wembley. We are in the FA Cup semi-final, so we are going twice at the moment but hopefully three times (including the final) we can go.

“But I think this group of players deserve great credit and also the staff. In the circumstance of the beginning of the season, to go twice and fight for cups twice, is massive.”
