Rough season at Stamford Bridge for the Chelsea Football Club. The Blues are sitting in fifth place in the EPL after winning the league last year. Then came today, when it looked like they had a decent shot to advance to the fifth round of the F.A. Cup after taking a 1-0 lead halfway into extra time.
Everton's Leighton Baines' tied the score on an excellent free kick with little time left, though. And then, they lost the game, and a chance to defend their title in the English knockout tourney, 4-3 in penalty kicks (video here).
