FA Cup: Chelsea see off Derby County with 2-0 win at iPro Stadium - @chelseafc

Oscar: The Brazilian celebrates with Willian after netting Chelsea's second
John Obi Mikel and Oscar scored second-half goals as Chelsea beat Derby County 2-0 at Pride Park to secure a home fourth-round tie against Stoke City.



After being mainly reduced to efforts from distance during the first half, Jose Mourinho's side eventually broke the deadlock just after the hour mark when John Obi Mikel headed home Willian's free-kick.

The influential Oscar wrapped things up for the visitors just five minutes later when his strike was too powerful for Derby goalkeeper Lee Grant to handle.

It was far from straightforward for the visitors, who will now face Stoke, as the fourth round draw was concluded minutes before kick-off.


Derby entered the game on the back of a 1-0 New Year's Day defeat by Wigan, their first loss in 10, while Chelsea were full of confidence having won their last three Premier League games.

It was Mourinho's men who had the first sight of goal, though, as Samuel Eto'o attempted to catch Grant out with an ambitious lob, but his effort could only find the stands from distance.
