[FA CUP] Manchester City,Chelsea,Southampton out of FA Cup


League one clubs, Bradford City and Middleborough have eliminated premier league table toppers, Chelsea and Man City from the FA cup.
Bradford won Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge while Middlesbrough knock out Premier League champions Manchester City 2-0 at Etihad Stadium.
Chelsea were dumped out of the FA Cup by Bradford in sensational style at Stamford Bridge with the League One side coming back from 2-0 down to stun the Premier League leaders 4-2.
Fernando over-cooked a backpass to Willy Caballero, which the goalkeeper just manages to clear only for the midfielder to hit his own clearance straight into Patrick Bamford.
As City pushed for a late equaliser, Middlesbrough, who were successful on the counter all game, put the game to bed as Kike slotted home in stoppage time.


Manchester United was the laughing stock of England for a day after drawing 0-0 with League Two Cambridge United Friday — but at least they didn’t lose. The top two teams in the Premier League were knocked out in the fourth round the FA Cup Saturday, leaving Arsenal and Manchester United as favorites to lift the cup.

Chelsea manager José Mourinho chose to sit some of his best players and give Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma and and Mohamed Salah a place in the starting 11 — and the gamble seemed to pay off in the first half. Gary Cahill and Ramires gave Chelsea an early 2-0 lead, but Bradford City, a League One team, responded with four consecutive goals at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho eventually brought on Cesc Fàbregas, Eden Hazard and Willian, but the Blues couldn’t capitalize on seven minutes of extra time and crashed out of the competition.
