FA Cup Fourth Round: Brentford 2-2 Chelsea
.
Handsome Fernando Torres looks great with his new hair-cut!
.
An 83rd-minute equaliser from superstar Torres rescued the match with a 2-2 draw at third-tier Brentford as the Blues narrowly avoided a humiliating exit - and will need to win in an upcoming replay. A penalty from Harry Forrester almost sent the European champions out of the competition, only for Torres to curl home a fine goal to rescue his side and deny his side's west London neighbours a memorable upset..
.
"Brentford did well. We knew they would play with a high tempo and try to press," said Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez."As a team they showed great character. You could see the manager on the touchline telling them what they needed to do, and they did it."
.
The League One side went ahead three minutes before half-time, with Marcello Trotta scored.  Chelsea introduced Juan Mata at half-time and within 10 minutes the visitors were level, as Oscar scored a shot into the top-left corner. Forrester's 73rd-minute penalty put Brentwood ahead, only for Torres to sweep home his late equaliser from the edge of the box and take the tie to a replay
