David Luiz amazing goal vs Fulham!
David Luiz says he forgives Sergio Aguero for his two-footed challenge on him.Aguero’s two-footed follow through caught Luiz, but it was seemingly not spotted by referee Chris Foy. But Luiz does not hold it against Aguero, and said: “I never saw Aguero do a bad tackle on other players. It was five seconds of anger and I forgive him.”
Luiz might be forgiven, but football fans, football fans never forgive.

Cech on the FA Cup:“As the FA Cup defending champions we are playing against the Premier League defending champions and we would like to keep a chance to reclaim the trophy this year. It’s probably something like a mini-final but if we want to lift the trophy, we need to cope with every team.”
Demba Ba. Always capable of the incredible. It’s a shame that, even after his contribution this season, he’ll still play second fiddle to a number 9 next season - whether it’s Torres or the Spaniard’s replacement, whomever he may be.
Frank Lampard and John Terry were fit but not selected, for the first time in 35 semi-final or final matches, stretching back almost a decade. The last time Chelsea went into such an important knockout tie without Terry or Lampard, was a 2008 Carling Cup semi-final against Everton, when both were injured.
For a decade, they have supplied the character to salvage games that seem to have been lost and carry Chelsea over the line when they have not always deserved it, ably assisted over the years by others, most notably Petr Cech and Didier Drogba.
