Mata sends Blues through

Published Add your comment

Juan Mata's penalty helped Chelsea secure a 1-0 victory in a tempestuous FA Cup fourth-round tie at west London rivals QPR.

Much of the build-up surrounded John Terry and Anton Ferdinand, who was spared having to shake the Chelsea skipper's hand after the Football Association gave permission to scrap the traditional pre-match ritual.

Terry was taunted throughout at Loftus Road but seemed unaffected by the abuse as the visitors edged through to the fifth round thanks to a soft-looking penalty, given when Clint Hill was adjudged to have brought down Daniel Sturridge.
