Ruud Gullit, former Chelsea manager, told BBC Sport: “Romelu Lukaku scored a fantastic goal. The way he turned Gary Cahill, an experienced player, he came with power and pace. This game needed something magical, I loved it. This is the FA Cup, it is a good thing that the two teams had nothing to play for elsewhere”

“We have a tight schedule, Norwich on Tuesday and then Stoke and PSG. Surprisingly the Everton game was put on a Saturday instead of a Sunday”; these have been Guus Hiddink releases after the match against Southampton at Saint Mary Stadium.

After the next two Premier League games facing Norwich and Stoke, the Blues are going to play the paramount match against Paris Saint Germain on 9th of March at Stamford Bridge; on the 13rd they would have played another League super match against Liverpool, but it has been postponed. The odd fact is that on saturday 12nd – one day before the postponed one – has been arranged the FA Cup Quarter Final against Everton.
