Football – Chelsea escape with 1-all draw
Daniel Sturridge ensured Chelsea remain in the FA Cup, as Birmingham held Andre Villas-Boas' side to a 1-all draw at Stamford Bridge in England today.

Chelsea made the worst possible start to their fifth-round tie when David Murphy capitalised on some poor defending to lash the ball home from close range.

The introduction of Didier Drogba for Fernando Torres seemed to ignite the hosts at the break, and Sturridge equalised in the second half to the relief of the home faithful.

The Premier League side dominated possession as they searched for a winner, but they couldn't find another goal and Birmingham earned a replay at St Andrew's.
