Hazard in Chelsea Vs Man City FA Cup 5th Round 2016

Chelsea on Sunday qualified for the quarter finals of the FA Cup with a 5-1 victory over Manchester City. The Blues swept aside a below-strength Manchester City team containing five teenage full debutants to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Chelsea will now face Everton in the quarter finals according to the draws done this evening.


What the managers said

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “Manchester City made changes but that doesn’t make it easy because the youngsters that came in were dangerous. It was key that we started well in the second half, got an early second and third goal.”

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: “We were forced to select that team, we couldn’t play another day and didn’t have any more fit players. We knew it was a difficult chance to carry on in the FA Cup. We cannot do anything more.

“If we play on Saturday, it is better for us, then we play in the Champions League for England. We have six players injured and cannot take any more risks. We played against a very good team and that’s why they won.”
