Leicester defeated by Chelsea after Torres brace
Updated Sunday, 18th March 2012
Fernando Torres finally ended his goalscoring drought as his brace helped Chelsea book another visit to Wembley Stadium after a comfortable 5-2 victory over Leicester in the FA Cup sixth round at Stamford Bridge.
Early goals from Gary Cahill and Salomon Kalou set the Blues on their way as Roberto Di Matteo maintained his 100% winning start to his tenure as Chelsea boss.
Torres added the third after 67 minutes to end a spell of 25 hours 41 minutes of football for Chelsea without scoring and grabbed his second with a late header before turning provider to set up a last-minute Raul Meireles goal.
Jermaine Beckford and Ben Marshall scored consolation goals for the visitors, who lacked the quality in possession to ever truly test the Blues.
