Chelsea needed just 45 minutes to beat Championship side, Preston, 4-0 in an FA Cup third round clash.

In the first half of the FA Cup third-round game at Stamford Bridge, the Championship side were able to hold Chelsea to a goalless draw despite the hosts dominating the match.

Chelsea who were without Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson who is currently with Senegal national team preparing for the 2023 AFCON, scored four goals in the last 32 minutes of the encounter.

Armando Broja scored the opener in the 58th minute, and Thiago Silva who is a second-half substitute made it 2-0 in the 66th minute.

Raheem Sterling’s 69th-minute goal and Enzo Fernández’s controversial goal in the 85th minute which was first ruled out for offside before it was given after a lengthy VAR check sealed the victory.

In the other FA Cup third-round game involving a Premier League club played simultaneously with Chelsea vs Preston, Aston Villa waited until the 87th minute to grab the winning goal over Middlesbrough, courtesy of Matty Cash’s strike.
