LONDON (AP) — The FA Cup produced goals rather than shocks, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Wigan scoring four times each Sunday to knock out lower-league opponents.

Held to a 2-2 tie by third-tier Brentford three weeks ago, Chelsea got second-half goals from Juan Mata, Oscar, Frank Lampard and John Terry to win its fourth-round replay 4-0. Lampard's goal was his 199th for the Blues, three behind the club record set by Bobby Tambling from 1959-70.

Chelsea will play at Middlesbrough on Feb. 27 to decide who plays the winner of Monday's match between Manchester United and Reading.

Manchester City defeated second-tier Leeds 4-0 and advanced to a quarterfinal against Barnsley. After Yaya Toure scored five minutes in, Sergio Aguero converted a penalty kick, then helped set up Carlos Tevez's second-half goal and scored the finale.

Wigan beat second-tier Huddersfield 4-1 as Arouna Kone scored twice and Callum McManaman and James McArthur had one goal each, and it will play Everton or Oldham. Millwall meets Blackburn, guaranteeing there will be a second-tier club in the semifinals at Wembley Stadium in April.

In the weekend's only Premier League game, Liverpool routed Swansea 5-0. Philippe Coutinho, Jose Enrique and Luis Suarez scored between successful penalty kicks by Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool (10-8-9) moved into seventh place, two points ahead of the Swans (9-8-10).

Alvaro Morata, a 20-year-old forward, scored his second goal of the season in the third minute, and Ramos doubled the margin with a header in the 12th. The defender then received two yellow cards in a two-minute span.

Mourinho, in his third season with Madrid, is 76-11-13 in La Liga.
