FA Cup: Five-Star Chelsea Cruise Past Chesterfield At Stamford Bridge

Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Andreas Christensen, Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech were on target as Chelsea's strength in depth shone through against Chesterfield. Chelsea scored four times in the first 40 minutes in a 5-1 demolition of Chesterfield, while Everton avoided another damaging defeat for manager Rafael Benitez as they needed extra-time to see off Hull 3-2. Newcastle United's miserable season on the field sunk to a new low on Saturday as they were dumped out of the FA Cup 1-0 by third-tier Cambridge, while non-league sides Kidderminster and Boreham Wood also booked their places in the fourth round. England international Kieran Trippier made his debut as Newcastle's first signing since a controversial takeover by the Saudi sovereign wealth fund. But the Magpies have still won only one match all season and were embarrassed by a side two divisions below them in front of a furious full house at St James' Park. Joe Ironside scored the only goal 11 minutes into the second half as he swivelled to fire home from close range after a goalmouth scramble. "It panned out how I dreamed about it last night," said Ironside who grew up idolising Newcastle's record goalscorer Alan Shearer. "Shearer was my hero," he added. "Now I have scored the winner at St James' Park."
