Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in a thrilling FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday evening.

The pair put their league title aspirations aside for a day as they went toe-to-toe for a place in the final.

Antonio Conte's men struck early when Willian fired a free kick passed Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal with only five minutes on the clock.

Spurs grew into the match and star striker Harry Kane equalised when he headed in from an improbable angle and steered the ball past Courtois.

Tottenham dominated the remainder of the half but a Chelsea break saw Son Heung-min slide in on Victor Moses to give away a penalty. Willian duly obliged to give Chelsea a 2-1 lead at the break.

The north London side struck back just after the break when Dele Alli slid in the box to convert a pin-point cross from Christian Eriksen to bring the scores level once again.

Maurico Pochettino's side pressed for a third goal but substitute Eden Hazard scored from a corner to put Conte's men ahead with only 15 minutes remaining. Nemanja Matic scored a screamer five minutes later to seal their place in the final where they will meet the winner of Manchester City and Arsenal who play tomorrow. 

In the Premier League, there were big wins for some teams threatened with relegation. 

Bournemouth put four past a hapless Middlesbrough at the Vitality Stadium. Goals from Joshua King, Benik Afobe, Marc Pugh and Charlie Daniels looked to have secured another season in the top division for Eddie Howe's men.

Gaston Ramirez was sent off after 20 minutes for two bookable offences.

Hull City picked up a valuable three points after goals from Sam Clucas and Lazar Markovic were enough to overcome Watford at the KCOM Stadium. Oamar Niasse saw red for the home side midway through the first half. 

Elsewhere, West Ham and Everton drew 0-0 while Swansea needed goals from Fernando Llorente and Tom Carroll to beat Stoke 2-0.
