0001312LONDON: The Premier League's big-hitters restored some normality to the FA Cup on Sunday with holders Chelsea crushing third tier Brentford 4-0 in a fourth round replay while Manchester City also dismissed Leeds United 4-0 in a fifth round tie.

 

Midfielder Frank Lampard scored his 199th goal for Chelsea who put four second-half goals past Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

 

Juan Mata, Oscar and captain John Terry also netted as secured Chelsea a fifth round clash at Championship (second division) Middlesbrough on Feb. 27.

 

Argentine Sergio Aguero scored twice for 2011 winners Manchester City who eased into the quarter-finals with a confident display that was the complete opposite from their abject surrender in a 3-1 Premier League defeat at Southampton last weekend.

 

Yaya Toure's superbly-worked early goal set City on their way against Championship side Leeds and Aguero added a second from the penalty spot. Carlos Tevez bundled in a third soon after halftime and Aguero added a fourth after 74 minutes.

 

Second tier Huddersfield entertain top-flight Wigan Athletic in a 1555 GMT kickoff while Manchester United host Reading at Old Trafford on Monday (2000).

 

Three second-tier sides reached the last eight on Saturday, including Blackburn Rovers who stunned 10-times winners Arsenal with a 1-0 victory at the Emirates.

 

Everton, sixth in the Premier League, were taken to a replay after conceding a stoppage-time goal in a 2-2 draw at third-tier strugglers Oldham Athletic.
