Chelsea were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round as Bradford City shocked them 4-2 at home.

The Blues took the lead in the 21st minute as Gary Cahill made it 1-0 to the hosts. A corner kick from Oscar found the centre-back at the near post where he volleyed home with ease.
 
Jose Mourinho would have been pleased seven minutes from the half-time interval as his charged doubled their advantage. Ramires surged forward from midfield and played a one-two with Salah before sending his strike into the back of the net via the inside of the post.
 
However, Bradford did not buckle under pressure but instead pulled a goal back only three minutes later. Morais knocked a free-kick into the danger area where it was cleared but the ball eventually came to Jonathan Stead who thumped it home with a venomous strike.
 
After failing to clear a long throw from Bradford, Chelsea let in a second goal in the 75th minute. Petr Cech parried the ball only as far as Filipe Morais who simply stroked it into the back of the net to equalise.
 
With the momentum of the equalising strike behind them, Bradford yet again took the lead in the 82nd minute as Andrew Halliday found the target. Morais sent the ball to Stead who set it up for Halliday to curl into the top corner.
 
Bradford's phenomenal performance was capped off with a fourth goal in stoppage time as Stead laid it up for Mark Yeates to bulge the net with a cool finish.
