Southend 1 - 4 Chelsea FT

After Sunday's debacle, I was interested to see Chelsea's new defensive strategy unveiled tonight live on ITV. Drogba dropped quite rightly after a performance of which the much maligned Phil Starbuck woulld have been ashamed. Southend weren't testing Chelsea's defence, so one of the Chelsea players sent a wild misplaced backpass from the half-way line, resulting in a corner, followed by another from which Southend scored with a free header.


A great save by Cech kept Chelsea alive and then a cock-up in the Shrimpers' defence let in Ballack for the equaliser.


If Southend continue to defend so deeply they'll be out.


Great stuff - this is what the best cup competition in the world is all about!
