Saturday's FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham was always likely to provide plenty of controversy given the clubs' Premier League title rivalry, and so it proved as Victor Moses won a penalty late in the first half at Wembley.

With the scores level at 1-1 after Harry Kane's header had cancelled out Willian's early free-kick, Moses cut into the penalty area before going down under a late challenge from Heung-min Son.

There was a brief delay as the South Korean forward frantically pleaded for the officials not to award a penalty, but referee Martin Atkinson eventually pointed to the spot.

Willian duly stepped up and dispatched his second set-piece goal of the afternoon by sending Hugo Lloris the wrong way to send Chelsea into the interval 2-1 up.

The goal halted Spurs' impressive comeback after the Brazilian's early goal, but Mauricio Pochettino's side may feel hard done by as there looked to be very little contact between Moses and Son.
