Published Add your comment

Ramires grabbed a late brace as Chelsea dispatched Portsmouth 4-0 in the FA Cup third round.

The Blues struggled to create much during a drab first period but took the lead just three minutes into the second half as Juan Mata directed home Florent Malouda's cross.

The npower Championship outfit pressed forward looking for an equaliser, but were hit by a late Ramires double before Frank Lampard scored in stoppage time.
