Do you believe in miracles?

Bradford City pulled off one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history as the League One side stunned Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with a 4-2 win.


It looked like a long day was in store for The Bantams as Chelsea found themselves 2-0 up after 40 minutes through goals from Gary Cahill and Ramires.

But Jon Stead tallied for Bradford late in the half to head into the dressing room down 2-1 to the Premier League leaders.

In the second half it was all Braford City, as goals from Filipe Morais and Andrew Halliday silenced the crowd at Stamford Bridge as the Blues went from two goals up to a goal down with less than ten minutes to play.

With seven minutes of stoppage-time on the clock, Chelsea pushed hard to find an equalizer, only to be punished on the counter-attack as substitute Mark Yeates beat Petr Cech to seal the win for Bradford City.

Jose Mourinho had said a loss to Bradford would be a “disgrace,” so it will be interesting to see how the manager reacts to his club’s lackluster performance.
