Chelsea 5 - 2 Leicester City

I'm feeling so happy tonight! Chelsea won 5 - 2 against Leicester City and is advancing into the FA Cup semi-finals with goals from Gary Cahill, Salomon Kalou, two by Fernando Torres and the last by Raul Meireles. The first goal got me fired up because it was the former Bolton player Gary Cahill's first goal for Chelsea! Salomon Kalou got set up pretty nicely in the end with a pass from Torres on the right side in a swift and immediate counter-attack. The next two goals came from Fernando Torres. The first scurry goal was taken blindly. I thought he wasn't going to score, but with a help of a good first touch, he managed to let the ball roll in the net leaving Leicester City's goalie Schmeichel only a few inches to save it. The second was from a Raul Meireles corner which let an unguarded Torres to easily flick it in with his head also, this time, leaving Schmeichel in awe and thought the ball was rolling out. I was hoping a hat-trick from Torres, but he unselfishly set up the last goal for Raul Meireles who was waiting in the middle to fire it home nicely. Leicester City's goals weren't that bad as well - especially super substitute Marshall's! He made his way from the left wing onto the middle and ambitiously tried a shot. Unbelievably, Cech thought it was going out, but the ball hit the woodwork and into the net. Daniel Sturridge also performed well, but I wasn't impressed. Chelsea could've bagged another 2 or 3 goals if he assisted and didn't try to score.

All in all, both Chelsea and Leicester City showed a great performance! It was really a fun match to watch! Fernando Torres was on fire! Now I'm watching Liverpool's game against Stoke City. I hope this will be a fun match to watch as well!
