Chelsea cruised into the Fifth Round of the FA Cup and scored 5 goals in the process as they knocked out MK Dons. It looked like it would be a long afternoon for MK Dons as Diego Costa missed an excellent chance from 8 yards out, which hit Martin as opposed to him actually saving it. Chelsea were producing great build up play, but could not finish until they took the lead in the 15th minute; an underhit pass was picked up by Costa, who rolled the ball across the area and Oscar slid in to apply the finish. MK Dons levelled four minutes later when a shot from Potter deflected off Matic and looped over Courtois. Chelsea missed further chances before Oscar scored his second, picking up a through ball and firing into the far corner. Oscar completed his hat trick in the first half with a 20 yard shot finding the net in the 44th minute. In the second half, Hazard added a penalty after being fouled and Traore sidefooted home the fifth.
Chelsea were in complete control of the match and could have scored many more. The defending from MK Dons was poor, with players not being closed down; they were also unable to put any pressure on the Chelsea goal, with a few long shots being their only efforts. Chelsea fully deserved the victory they completed with ease.
