FA CUP: Chelsea thump Watford to progress to fourth round

Second-half goals from Willian, Loic Remy and Kurt Zouma sent Chelsea through to the FA Cup fourth round with a 3-0 win over Watford at Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League leaders were held by their London rivals until half time, but turned it on after the break with a spell of three goals in 14 minutes.

World Cup winner Andre Schurrle has found opportunities hard to come by of late for the Premier League leaders and will not have impressed Mourinho by blazing over when well placed on 24 minutes.

For his second match in succession, Schurrle was hooked at half time and his replacement Willian fired Chelsea into the lead on 58 minutes with a bending shot from 25 yards which found the top corner.

Remy doubled Chelsea’s advantage on 70 minutes with a smart half-volley which continued his record of scoring on every start for the club, and Zouma put the result beyond doubt with a powerful header from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross two minutes later.
