Sky Blues give it all in defeat

Sky Blues give it all in defeat

Chelsea were kept honest by Coventry City's FA Cup performance at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, but Guus Hiddink's side were always in control of the 5th Round tie, watched by a record Sky Blues' attendance at their new(ish) stadium.

'Chelsea paid us a compliment by fielding said boss Chris Coleman.

'I couldn't ask any more from my players but we were disappointed with the first goal we gave to Drogba.

'We don't need to give them any help. They are good enough to create their own goals.'

Hard lines guys - you gave it your best shot but on the day they were just too good for you. Good luck for the rest of the season.
