Twitter Reacts as Chelsea Thrash Manchester City's Youngsters in the FA Cup

Pedro hit the post on Chelsea's first clear chance of the game:

Then, an Eden Hazard cross found Diego Costa in the box, and he headed the home side ahead:

City hit right back and equalised through David Faupala:

However, the celebrations were somewhat marred by a handful of coins thrown from the crowd:

The teams went into half-time level, but it didn't take Chelsea long to go ahead in the second half, as Hazard fed Willian, who finished across the goalkeeper:

It was 3-1 almost immediately after, with Cahill firing past the struggling Willy Caballero:

The second half was all Chelsea, and Hazard got himself on the scoresheet when he picked himself up to send Caballero the wrong way with a well-placed free-kick:

Caballero then slightly redeemed himself when he saved Oscar's tame penalty:

But Chelsea youngster Bertrand Traore came off the bench and scored with a looping header:

The Blues held on to secure their place in the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals.
