Chelsea launched the post Andre Villas-Boas era in winning fashion as second half goals from Juan Mata and Raul Meireles secured a 2-0 victory over Birmingham in an FA Cup fifth round replay at St. Andrew's.

After a goalless first half, caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo saw Mata break the deadlock eight minutes after the restart.

Then a superb 59th minute strike from Raul Meireles doubled Chelsea's lead to secure a home quarter-final tie with Leicester.
