FA Cup—Stamford Bridge, London

Chelsea 1-0 Stoke City

Scorers: Oscar (28')


Chelsea eased into the FA Cup fifth round by beating Stoke City 1-0—but it could, and should, have been much, much more.

Oscar scored the only goal of the game by bending a beautiful free-kick into the far corner from 22 yards; he and Andre Schurrle hit the post later on and Samuel Eto'o missed an open goal from four yards in the second half.

Stoke offered very little in attack and had setup to contain the Blues for a draw, but when the home side took the lead Mark Hughes failed to adjust his strategy.
