Chelsea 4-0 Morecambe: Timo and Kai Scores in FA Cup win

Last season’s FA Cup runners-up Chelsea returned to winning ways, comfortably beating League Two Morecambe to reach the fourth round on Sunday.

England midfielder Mason Mount put a fine strike, putting the Blues side ahead on his 22nd birthday from 25 yards and was assisted by Hudson-Odoi.

Since the beginning of last season, Mason Mount has scored more goals from outside the box than any other Chelsea player in all competitions and four of his 10 goals for the blues have been from outside the box.

Kai Havertz headed the fourth after meeting Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross.

Phillips fired in a low cross which looked to have embarrassed the hosts keeper before he somehow recovered to save on the line.

Morecambe, making their first third-round appearance since 2003, equipped themselves well after recovering from a coronavirus outbreak at the club which denied captain Sam Lavelle a place in the side.

They only returned to training on Tuesday after coming out of isolation.

But Chelsea’s perfomance proved too much for morecambe, who were playing their first match since 26 December.

Blues head coach, Frank Lampard will surely have been particularly excited with his side’s second goal on the way to a second win in eight Premier League and cup outings.

Werner was in the right place to steer home after a headed assist by fellow Germany international Havertz, who has struggled to hit form since completing a £71m move from Bayer Leverkusen in September.
