Chelsea dispensed with Cardiff City 4-1 in the FA Cup fifth round, courtesy of goals from Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Daniel Sturridge and Salomon Kalou. Cardiff’s goal was, at the time, an equaliser scored by Michael Chopra, but in reality, they were never in the hunt. It took just two minutes for the Blues to take the lead and it was Drogba’s 23rd goal of the season that did it….
