Chelsea progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable 5-1 away win over Milton Keynes Dons on Sunday.

The day started with the home side eyeing another cup upset, having beaten Manchester United in last season's League Cup:

Chelsea started brightly and spurned a number of early chances:

Diego Costa denied by a great save. Top football from #Chelsea.

— Chelsea HQ (@Chelsea_HQ) January 31, 2016

Fabregas linking up well with Costa, Hazard & Oscar when he surges forward. Two big chances already. Loftus-Cheek putting himself about #cfc

— Liam Twomey (@liam_twomey) January 31, 2016

Chelsea should be three-up here. Playing some great stuff, decoy runners creating space. Lack of composure in front of goal. #CFC

— Garry Hayes (@garryhayes) January 31, 2016

Then Oscar finally put them ahead following some sloppy MK Dons defending:

Now it is 1-0. Oscar, at the third time of asking. Costa did really well to dispossess McFadzean before squaring. #CFC

— Garry Hayes (@garryhayes) January 31, 2016

MK Dons 0-1 Chelsea (Oscar)

So far:

Crikey! Chelsea are putting on a masterclass here. This could end up anything.

But the home side equalised almost immediately with a goal out of nowhere from Darren Potter:

1-1. Deflected effort from Potter loops over Courtois. Got a game here.

— Garry Hayes (@garryhayes) January 31, 2016

MK Dons equalise!

We did NOT see that coming. #FACup pic.twitter.com/ZWjXwJ3x3n

MK Dons back in it with deflected shot...Chelsea paying the price for not killing them off early

— Simon Johnson (@sjstandardsport) January 31, 2016

Eden Hazard, who is without a goal this season, had a golden opportunity to restore the Blues' lead:

Hazard one on one with the keeper. Still can't score. #MKDvCHE

— 888sport (@888sport) January 31, 2016

Hazard won't score this season, will he?

— Simon Johnson (@sjstandardsport) January 31, 2016

Chelsea were carving the home side open but struggling to finish their chances:

Not exaggerating when I say it should be 6-1 to Chelsea right now

— Simon Johnson (@sjstandardsport) January 31, 2016

Chelsea should be about 10-1 up now!

— Ryan Bailey (@RyanJayBailey) January 31, 2016

How have Chelsea not scored 25 goals in this game?

— Tony Hodson (@tonyhodson1) January 31, 2016

Diego Costa has done more to prevent Chelsea scoring than than the whole MK Dons defence

But Oscar restored the lead with his second of the game:

Is now 2-1 #CFC. Oscar scored it, but what a lovely through-ball by Rubes. Been excellent today.

— Garry Hayes (@garryhayes) January 31, 2016

The Brazilian then completed his first career hat-trick shortly before half-time with a fine run and strike:

1-3, Oscar hat trick, which is a flattering score line for MK Dons

— Jack Rathborn (@JackRathborn) January 31, 2016

And the Oscar goes to...#HatTrick #CFC pic.twitter.com/2tzvGGqHVH

The travelling fans were enjoying their visit to the former south-west London based club:

In the second half, Hazard's goal finally arrived, as the Belgian converted from the spot after being brought down in the box:

Chelsea then added a fifth through substitute Bertrand Traore, his first goal for the club:

Traore scores his first Chelsea goal. Turning into a good afternoon here for #CFC youth. RLC having good game, now Traore scoring. 5-1.

— Garry Hayes (@garryhayes) January 31, 2016

The Blues held on to secure a comfortable cup win:

FT: MK Dons 1-5 Chelsea.
