After hitting the woodwork five times in the first half Chelsea finally took the lead when Didier Drogba guided an excellent free-kick past David James to give the Stamford Bridge outfit the lead.
Kevin Prince Boateng, who had earlier kicked Michael Ballack out of the game, fluffed a Portsmouth spot kick when his tame effort was easily saved by Petr Cech. Frank Lampard also missed a penalty after the referee adjudged Michael Brown of bringing down the England man.
Portsmouth fought bravely but failed to find a way back into the match and Chelsea won the FA Cup to seal the double.
