Janusz Michallik admits Christian Pulisic played well against Sheffield United but says he should stay concerned (2:09)

Chelsea won 2-0 against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and reached the FA Cup semi-finals

An own goal by Oliver Norwood and a goal by Hakim Ziyech in each half were enough to give Chelsea a second consecutive trip to Wembley

The result shows that Chelsea have remained unbeaten in 14 games in all competitions since Thomas Tuchel took over the club

Chelsea have also played without conceding a goal in the last six games and have to concede one more goal at home under Tuchel

The US national player Christian Pulisic started for the third time under Tuchel and lasted 83 minutes

“Sheffield United didn’t make it easy for us – they have quality and we suffered a bit in the second half but it’s another clean sheet, a good performance,” Pulisic told the BBC

“We have a confident group of people here and when you do a show like this we feel really good and we feel like we can beat anyone””

The visitors started the game with David McGoldrick and Phil Jagielka, who tested Kepa Arrizabalaga in the first 10 minutes

However, Chelsea scored the first goal on 24 minutes when Ben Chilwell collected the ball from a corner and his goal was turned into his own net by Norwood

Pulisic almost doubled Chelsea’s lead before half-time after exploiting another Norwood mistake, but his attempt was blocked by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale

The American almost shot minutes in the second half, but Ramsdale again denied it with a good save

The guests should have equalized after 67 minutes, but an unmarked McGoldrick missed a header from close range

United had more chances to reach the level but Kepa saved from Oliver McBurnie and McGoldrick while Rhian Brewster hit the side netting late

Ziyech took a second break from the counterattack when Chelsea reached the semi-finals with Manchester City and Southampton

“It sounds great to say we made it to the semi-finals – it was a tough game, we had a good first half in which we controlled everything,” Tuchel told the BBC

“We lost control in the second half, we were clearly tired. After 14 games in a row I could feel that we were tired and that we made a lot of small mistakes

“We were lucky enough to go clean in the second half. It’s important to go through the cup. That was the goal and we achieved it”
