Chelsea beat Stoke 1-0 yesterday in the FA Cup Fourth Round at Stamford Bridge with a fantastic strike from Oscar. Apart from that and Chelsea hitting the woodwork twice, this was a dull affair if we are honest.
Stoke offered very little during the game with Steven Ireland shooting into the side netting in the first half, being the closest they came to testing Mark Schwarzer in the Chelsea goal.
There were three massive positives for me in this one. First, Eden Hazard produced another man of the match display to keep his impressive run of form going. Second, Oscar in a week where the focus has been the departure of Juan Mata, stepped up and produced a sublime free kick to win it for Chelsea:
Finally, Nemanja Matic stepped into the side and had a real solid game.
Let's be honest, these are the only three things we can really talk about!
What did you think of the game?
Carefree & KTBFFH!
