Chelsea showed difference in class - MK Dons boss Robinson

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson admitted Chelsea were brilliant in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Blues destroyed the Championship side 5-1 at Stadium:mk to move though to the next phase of the cup despite conceding in the 21st minute when the home team equalised following Oscar's earlier opener.

The Brazilian midfielder added another pair of goals to claim a hat-trick while Eden Hazard and Bertrand Traore were also on target as Guus Hiddink's outfit cruised in Milton Keynes, garnering the following reaction from Robinson.

"They were outstanding. All week we were talking about them having turned a corner," he said.

"There was a gulf in class and when that class turns up and performs with the same appetite, hunger and desire that they did, you're on a hiding to nothing.

"They have an ability to rip you apart on any given day. They did that at ease, but there was some sloppy defending, some naive defending.

"It's a bit unfair to point fingers. Some of them have let themselves down a little bit."
