Chelsea booked an FA Cup final showdown with Manchester United as Olivier Giroud tormented Southampton with a strike in Sunday's 2-0 win at Wembley.Opting to select Giroud instead of Alvaro Morata proved a shrewd move by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as the former Arsenal star produced a tremendous piece of skill to break the deadlock early in the second half.Giroud has feasted on Southampton this season, scoring twice to spark Chelsea's 3-2 win last weekend and also netting a late equalizer against them for Arsenal in December.His fourth goal for Chelsea since his January signing was followed by a late header from substitute Morata, setting up a heavyweight final against United at Wembley on May 19 .Conte has spent much of the season complaining about Chelsea's failure to back his transfer plans, while several of his players are believed to be unhappy with his demanding training sessions and intense personality.
