No Child’s Play: Chelsea Silence Man City’s Young Bloods
Emenike, Moses Rise To Occasion
Chelsea booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 5-1 victory over a young Manchester City side at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
Diego Costa headed Chelsea in front before David Faupala, one of five full debutants for City, equalised from close-range, but two goals in five minutes after half-time put Guus Hiddink’s side in control.
Willian slid home a third and Eden Hazard’s free-kick made it four, and there was still time for Willy Caballero to save Oscar’s penalty before substitute Bertrand Traore added a fifth.
West Ham came from a goal down to thrash Blackburn 5-1 at Ewood Park and reach their first FA Cup quarter-final for five years.
A brace from Dmitri Payet, Emmanuel Emenike and a solo effort from Victor Moses condemned Blackburn found itself out of this season’s FA Cup.
Meanwhile, in the last game of the day, Crystal Palace booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals as Martin Kelly’s first-half strike sealed a 1-0 fifth-round win at Tottenham.
Chelsea’s next game is against Everton in March and the winner will march on to the semi-final.
