Chelsea are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after a convincing 4-1 win over Peterborough United.

Blues manager Antonio Conte made nine changes to his side, but the rotation did not affect his side’s performance.

Spanish winger Pedro bagged a brace with Michy Batshuayi and Willian scoring the other goals either side of half-time.

Tom Nichols grabbed a consolation for the Posh with 20 minutes remaining, three minutes after returning Blues captain John Terry received a straight red card.

Terry was dismissed for a clumsy challenge on Peterborough forward Lee Angol.

This was only the third ever meeting between the two sides – all three have come in the FA Cup.

Chelsea have won on all three occasions, scoring 14 goals and only conceding once inside the trio of cup meetings at Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League leaders are now into Monday night’s fourth round draw, which will commence at 7:10pm.
