FA Cup: Moses Benched, Iheanacho Dropped As Chelsea, City, Spurs Win

 

By James Agberebi:

Chelsea made light work of Championship club Brentford, beating them 4-0 in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Willian, Pedro Rodrigiez , Branislav Ivanovic and Michy Batshuayi all scored for Chelsea.

Super Eagles forward Victor Moses was an unused substitute for Chelsea in the comfortable win.

Willian got Chelsea rolling with a superb free-kick in the 14th minute to give Chelsea a 1-0 lead.

Pedro made it 2-0, slipping the ball through Brentford keeper's legs off a pass from Batshuayi.

In the 70th minute, substitute Ivanovic made it 3-0 to Chelsea after shooting past Brentford's keeper.

Chelsea went 4-0 up on 81 minutes thanks to Batshuayi from the penalty spot following a foul on Ivanovic inside the 18-yard box.

At Selhurst Park, Manchester City beat struggling Crystal Palace 3-0.

Goals from Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Yaya Toure in the 43rd 71st and 90th minutes, sealed the comfortable win for City.

Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho was not in the City squad that travelled to Selhurst Park, the second straight match he will not be involved in.

At White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur escaped what would have been a shock as they edged League Two side Wycombe Wanderers 4-3.

Paul Hayes gave Wycombe a 2-0 first half lead on 23 and 36 minutes.

Spurs fourth back to make it 2-2 through Heung-Min Son and Vincent Janssen in the 60th and 64th minutes.

In the 84th minute Wycombe scored what looked like the winning goal via Gary Thompson but Dele Alli equalised on 89 minutes to make it 3-3.

And when it looked like the game was heading for a replay, Son scored in the 96th minute to send Spurs into the fifth round.
