Chelsea secure FA Cup semi-final place

Chelsea secured their place in the FA Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 win over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Frank Lampard put the Blues ahead on 35 minutes with a shot from 20-yards before John Terry made sure of the win with a powerful header 22 minutes from the end.

Stoke had caused Chelsea problems in the first-half through Rory Delap’s long throw-ins and almost went ahead when Dean Whitehead had a shot cleared off the line by John Obi Mikel.

However, Chelsea did enough to earn themselves a semi-final date with Aston Villa at Wembley.
