Willian’s brace and Hudson-Odoi goal was all the Blues needed to win Sheffield Wednesday during the fourth round FA Cup clash at Stamford Bridge.
Sheffield Wednesday started well and were initially awarded a penalty 23 minutes into the game but VAR intervened to overturn the decision of the center referee as Ampadu got the ball in the challenge before Pelupessy kicked the back of his leg.
A minute later, Hutchinson’s late challenge on Azpilicueta in the box left the centre referee with no option but to point to the penalty spot. Willian steps up and convert from the 12 yard box
64 minutes, Hudson-Odoi doubles the lead for the home side. The winger gets on the scoresheet with a fine finish from close range after Christensen found him in space.
7 minutes before full time, Willian bagged a brace. The Brazilian and Giroud had a one-two touch inside 18 box, the midfielder bends his effort into the bottom corner to make the scoreline 3-0.
This is the 124th meeting in all competitions between Chelsea and Sheffield Wednesday but first since April 2000, and the Blues showed superior quality to secure their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
