Well, Chelsea had a day, didn’t it?

Pedro scored a brace, John Terry was sent off in his first appearance since Nov. 5, and the Blues’ lineup looked lively in an entertaining 4-1 win over Peterborough in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Terry’s red card was amusing to those who don’t support the Blues. With Chelsea leading 3-0, Peterborough’s Lee Angol made quick work of the 36-year-old last man back. Terry half-fell, half-dove into Angol’s legs in a feeble attempt at stopping the break. Easy-enough red.

Tom Nichols added a goal before Pedro canceled it out to give us our final score line.

Pedro scored a beauty after Cesc Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi had shots blocked, and it was 1-0 after 18 minutes. Batshuayi bagged one for himself before halftime, and Willian laced a bullet home after the break.
