Manchester City booked their ticket to the FA Cup final after claiming a late win over Chelsea in the semi-final, in a match that was a controversial one after Chelsea were not given a possible Jack Grealish penalty when the score was still 0-0.
Cole Palmer's free kick struck the arm of Jack Grealish, who was in the wall inside the box, but Michael Oliver decided not to point to the spot and there was even no VAR review in case the referee had missed the spot kick.
Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino said at a post-match press conference when asked about the possible penalty that his staff told him it was a penalty and that he told the referee to check it on TV, but that he ignored him. Have a look at the Argentinian's words.
