Lampard scores, Terry proved himself for the team

- Lampard 35,
- Terry 67


**John Terry will grab the headlines for all the right reasons after scoring Chelsea's second goal to help them sink Stoke and reach the FA Cup semi-finals.The home skipper has been the subject of a host of allegations about his private life of late, but headed in a Frank Lampard corner to seal the win.

Early fire from Stoke was extinguished by Frank Lampard whose fierce drive took the slightest of deflections as it flew past Thomas Sorenson.From a Chelsea corner on the left, the ball is put into the penalty area, eventually dinked towards Frank Lampard on the edge of it and he takes advantage of being teed up by John Terry by drilling a shot through a thicket of legs, off a Stoke defender and into the back of the net. Frank Lampard in scoring with yet another a deflected shot sensation.

Stoke had to thank Andy Wilkinson in the 66th minute when he cleared off the line from Anelka. Drogba's cross found the France striker unmarked at the far post and his header was stopped by Wilkinson with Sorensen struggling.

But two minutes later Chelsea went 2-0 in front through captain Terry. He planted a firm header into the net from a corner by Florent Malouda and then ran to the corner flag pointing at his captain's armband in celebration.

Teams :

Chelsea: Hilario; Ferreira, Terry, Alex, Ivanovic; Lampard, Malouda, Obi Mikel; Anelka, Drogba, Kalou

Stoke City: Sorensen; Wilkinson, Huth, Collins, Faye; Whelan (Pugh 46), Whitehead, Delap, Sanli (Lawrence 60); Fuller, Sidibe (Kitson 61)
