Chelsea Wallops Manchester City 5-1 to cruise into the FA Cup Quarter Finals

Chelsea FC responded perfectly to her loss to Paris Saint Germain in the Champions league in midweek, by dispatching a weakened Manchester City side 5-1 in the 5th round of the Emirates FA cup. Chelsea took the lead in the first half through a Diego Costa header, from an Eden Hazard assist. About a minute later, City’s equalized through newbie David Faupala.

Chelsea re-took the lead in the early minutes of the second half through Willian, before goals from Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and substitute Bertrand Traore confirmed the reigning Premier league champions place in the quarter finals.

Elsewhere, Crystal Palace ended a 21-year wait to get to the quarter finals of the FA cup by defeating Tottenham 0-1. Palace’s lone goal was scored by Martin Kelly in the 46th minute of play.
