Mourinho's Chelsea stunned in FA Cup
(Cahill 21, Ramires 38)
(Stead 41, Morais 75, Halliday 82, Yeates 90)
A largely second-string Chelsea side were dumped out of the FA Cup fourth round after a stunning, come-from-behind 4-2 defeat by League One side Bradford City at Stamford Bridge last night.
Before the match, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said it would be "a disgrace" if the Premier League leaders were knocked out by Bradford.
The Portuguese did rest several of his stars for the encounter, but the Blues would have expected to go through comfortably with the likes of Brazil internationals Oscar, Ramires, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta and Jon Obi Mikel in the side.
Captain John Terry and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois sat out for Kurt Zouma and Petr Cech, respectively.
Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were also left on the bench, while Egyptian Mohamad Salah, linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge recently, started behind strikers Didier Drogba and Loic Remy.
It appeared to be business as usual for the Blues when England regular Cahill opened the scoring in the 21st minute.
Ramires then doubled the home side's lead on 38 minutes, finishing from close range after some good work from Salah.
Bradford, who last won at the Bridge in 1912, pulled a goal back four minutes before halftime through Jon Stead, who struck a sweet free kick into the top corner from outside the box.
Prior to the goal, Mourinho's men had conceded in just two of 11 home matches.
Chelsea, who have won their last 12 home games in all competitions, looked sluggish at the start of the second half and allowed Bradford six corners in the first 15 minutes.
Growing in confidence, the visitors equalised through former Chelsea youth player Filipe Morais in the 75th minute, before Andy Halliday drilled home seven minutes later to give Bradford the lead.
Mark Yeates settled the cup tie three minutes into injury time to send Bradford on their way to the fifth round of the much-storied competition.
