LONDON (AP) ― The FA Cup produced goals rather than shocks, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Wigan scoring four times each Sunday to knock out lower-league opponents.
Held to a 2-2 tie by third-tier Brentford three weeks ago, Chelsea got second-half goals from Juan Mata, Oscar, Frank Lampard and John Terry to win its fourth-round replay 4-0.
Lampard’s goal was his 199th for the Blues, three behind the club record set by Bobby Tambling from 1959-70.
