Demba Ba's astonishing volley knocks United out of FA Cup

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Juan Mata’s beautiful lob found Demba Ba’s outstretched right leg in the 49th minute for a moment of soccer genius, knocking out Manchester United and putting Chelsea in the semifinals with a 1-0 win in their FA Cup replay at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

United is nearing its 20th Premier League title but is no longer alive in any cup competitions. Chelsea will play Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals at Wembley -- having won four of the last six FA Cup titles -- and hosts Rubin Kazan in the Europa League quarterfinals Thursday.

After a forgettable first half, a lively second began with Ba’s stunner. Forward Danny Welbeck gave the Spaniard too much room. The 27-year-old Senegalese striker tracked Mata’s pinpoint pass over his shoulder, then uses every inch of his 6-foot-2 frame to beat a helpless David de Gea
