Hakim Ziyech has challenged Chelsea to make it a ‘special’ end to the season as the Blues chase Champions League and FA Cup glory. Thomas Tuchel’s side booked their place in the FA Cup final with a 1-0 win over Premier League leaders Manchester City on Saturday. Morocco forward Ziyech bagged the winner for Chelsea with a cool finish from Timo Werner’s pass. As well as a second successive FA Cup final appearance, Chelsea also have a Champions League semi-final to look forward to. The Blues will face Real Madrid over two legs after winning 2-1 on aggregate in the quarter-final against Porto on Tuesday. ‘It was a perfect week and we can enjoy that. Now it’s a special end to the season if you see what we are still playing for,’ Ziyech said. ‘All the ways are open and everybody is excited about it and we cannot wait to play those games.’
