A first-half Oscar hat-trick together with Eden Hazard's first goal of the season gave Chelsea a comfortable 5-1 victory at Milton Keynes Dons in the FA Cup yesterday. Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength.

Chelsea remain undefeated in eight games under interim manager Guus Hiddink and this impressive fourth-round display confirmed the progress that they have made under the Dutchman.

The win ensures that Chelsea remain in contention to repeat the FA Cup success they enjoyed when Hiddink was last in interim charge of the club in 2009.

And the manager had every reason to be satisfied with the way his side eased their way to victory at Stadium MK, albeit against second-tier opposition.

Oscar's goals grabbed the attention, but Hazard's penalty, his first goal in 30 appearances for his club, came as a huge relief.

Burkinabe international Bertrand Traore was also on target with his first Chelsea goal.

Hiddink signalled his intentions by fielding a strong side, although he did take the opportunity to hand rare starts to left-back Baba Rahman and young midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

With loan signing Alexandre Pato not eligible to play and both Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao injured, Diego Costa led the line and his work alongside Oscar quickly nixed any chance of an upset.

After a dominant start, Chelsea took a 15th-minute lead courtesy of a defensive mistake.

An underhit back-pass by Kyle McFadzean allowed Costa to advance on goal and the striker unselfishly squared the ball for Oscar to finish into an empty net.

It was to MK Dons' credit that they responded positively and drew level six minutes later when Darren Potter's shot took a deflection off Nemanja Matic and looped over the leaping Thibaut Courtois.

However, the gulf in quality between the teams meant it was only a matter of time before Chelsea asserted their superiority, although goalkeeper David Martin did his best to hold them at bay, saving well from Hazard before Costa nicked the ball off the toe of Oscar in front of goal.

Another chance quickly came Oscar's way and this time the Brazilian made no mistake with a well-placed finish in the 32nd minute.

The playmaker, operating on the right on this occasion with Loftus-Cheek filling the central role, completed his hat-trick when he cut in from the left and found the corner of the goal with a well-placed right-foot shot.

The home side had offered little resistance and the pattern of the game was maintained after the break when Hazard was tripped by Potter in the 55th minute.

Chelsea skipper John Terry intervened to ensure Hazard took the penalty and the Belgium rolled the ball home to his obvious relief.

Substitute Traore then completed a routine victory for the visitors when he finished with a first-time shot after Hazard had chased Cesc Fabregas's pass out to the byline before setting up the Burkina Faso youngster.

In the day's other tie, Everton got over their mid-week League Cup elimination against Manchester City by winning 3-0 at fourth-tier Carlisle United courtesy of goals from Arouna Kone, Aaron Lennon and Ross Barkley.

But the match was marred by racist abuse directed at Everton's players after Kone's second-minute opener, buy fifa 16 coins and build the best team to challenge players around the world. which prompted referee Lee Mason to ask for a warning message to be read out over the public address system.

Public Pay close Attention to Manchester United at the FA Cup

No one would call Louis van Gaal's Manchester United side easy on the eye, but the television companies who have screened the club's FA Cup clashes for the past 11 years would clearly disagree. Buy fut16coin can upgrade your strength.

United's tussle against Derby will be the 49th consecutive time that the Reds' FA Cup adventures have been televised live, which must surely make them the bona fide darlings of a competition they last won in 2003/04.

Not too long before their epic televisual streak, though, it's worth remembering that United were persona non grata.

It was June 1999 when the Red Devils – still basking in the glow of a Champions League triumph that beggared belief – pushed the boundaries of incredulity further by drawing stumps on their involvement in a competition that has been a staple of the English game since 1872.

Speaking to a gob-smacked press pack alongside then-chairman Martin Edwards and the FA's interim executive director David Davies, the newly knighted Sir Alex Ferguson laid bare the club's reasons for turning their back on a tournament they had won for a 10th time the previous month.

"We had to think of the situation regarding England hosting the World Cup," he said. "No one wants to see them not get it. I dare not think of the criticism we would've received if we had refused. That was unthinkable – and that's a Scotsman talking."

Fergie believed that bowing out would help England land the World Cup

How those less-than-straight FIFA suits must have been chuckling into their cash-filled troughs.

The unthinkable refusal referred to by the United boss related to his club's place in the 2000 Club World Cup in Sao Paulo, the first time the tournament had been contested. The World Cup he alluded to, meanwhile, was the 2006 tournament which, as it transpires, England had next to no chance of hosting anyway.

Selfless or silly?

Some 17 years on, United's withdrawal seems faintly ridiculous, particularly as they haven't been shy in giving their benchwarmers a run out in the tournament ever since – a reality that still doesn't seem to have put off the cameras.

Back then, in the days when Kevin Keegan had only just started steering England and Blackburn fans could still remember what the Premier League trophy looked like, United's decision appeared perfectly justified. Edwards even believed their decision was made for the good of the English game.

"If we had not entered this tournament, England's opportunity to host the 2006 World Cup would have been in jeopardy," he said. "It might even be stronger than that. We're giving England an opportunity now. You cannot expect our players to play 70 games. Something had to give. We are disappointed for our supporters. The league couldn't give and neither could the European Cup. For one year the FA Cup has to give."

I blame the Government and the FA. I think it is tragic that they are about to sell the jewels of English football down the pan in the slim hope of us getting the World Cup

- Lee Hodgkiss, Independent Manchester United Supporters Association

Others weren't so convinced by United's apparently selfless act.

"My reaction is one of total disappointment," said Lee Hodgkiss, a spokesman for the Independent Manchester United Supporters Association. "I blame the Government and the FA. I think it's tragic that they are about to sell the jewels of English football down the pan in the slim hope of us getting the World Cup. They (United) were damned if they did and damned if they didn't."

Hodgkiss went on to say he would feel sorry for whichever team won the tournament in 2000, arguing that the victory would be hollow in the absence of the "greatest team in Europe".

The third round was ultimately brought forward to December anyway, meaning the holders could have easily opened their defence

As it happens, the third round was ultimately brought forward to December anyway, meaning the holders could have easily opened their defence and then dusted off their Portuguese phrase book before heading back from Sao Paulo for a slightly delayed crack at making it through to round five.

In reality, the competition had to suffer the indignity of watching Darlington have two bites at the cherry, as fortunate souls drawn out of a hat from the second round. They first lost 3-1 to Gillingham at the Priestfield before skipping on to Villa Park as a lucky loser… and lost again.

The treble winners headed to South America with high hopes of adding another piece of silverware to the collection they'd built up in the preceding eight seasons. As it was, though, they were cut down by Romario's Vasco da Gama and almost humiliated by Mexico's Necaxa. Their sole group win came against South Melbourne – a side maybe even Darlington could probably have beaten if given a couple of goes.

They were home by January 12 – a full week before Chelsea played their fourth-round tie against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge.

No sooner had the eventual champions' victory parade been completed than the FA's new chief executive, Adam Crozier, was insisting that no other team would be following United's lead.

"We have always approached this season as being a one-off," he said. "We've been supportive right the way through and we understand the reasons why these decisions were taken."

For their part, the club were keen to emphasise that they wanted to get back on the FA Cup horse as soon as possible.

"We have always taken the view that it was a one-off situation," said then-club spokesman Ken Ramsden. "People should not lose sight of the fact that the FA and the Government were very keen for us to go. We just hope steps can be taken so that no club finds itself in the invidious position we did."

The next English team to play in the Club World Cup was Liverpool, five years after United's toe-dip in Brazil. Rafa Benitez's side would finish runners-up to Sao Paolo in a slimmed-down version of the tournament in Japan in December 2005 – some three weeks before the reinstated traditional start of the FA Cup. They would beat Luton 5-3 in a thriller at Kenilworth Road in January, and go on to win the final against West Ham.

And United? Their third-round tie against Burton was televised, a 0-0 draw followed by a thumping 5-0 win for the hosts at Old Trafford. The cameras have followed them ever since.
