Chelsea boss not fazed after draw throws up City

CHELSEA must beat English Premier League rival Manchester City to stay in the hunt for an eighth FA Cup.

The Blues, winners of the trophy four times in the past seven seasons, beat Stoke 1-0 to earn a trip to City in the fifth round.

A stunning first-half free-kick from Brazilian Oscar (pictured) secured his side a place in the last 16 for the 15th time in the past 16 seasons. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was not concerned about the daunting trip to Manchester.

"No problem. If you want to be the best then you have to play the best, so it's good for us," he said.

Three other all EPL ties sees Arsenal hosting Liverpool and Southampton at Sunderland, while Everton is home to Swansea.

Cup holder Wigan visits Cardiff, Brighton tackles Hull, Sheffield Wednesday takes on Charlton and Sheffield United or Fulham will play Nottingham Forest or Preston North End.
