Torres ends drought as Chelsea reaches FA Cup semi

Published:

LONDON (AP) -- Fernando Torres ended a 26-game goal drought as Chelsea reached the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday, and Liverpool ensured a second trip to Wembley Stadium this season on a weekend overshadowed by concern over critically ill Bolton player Fabrice Muamba.

Torres scored twice in a 5-2 win over Leicester and Chelsea will face the winner of the Tottenham-Bolton quarterfinal, abandoned on Saturday after Muamba went into cardiac arrest on the field. The Bolton midfielder remained in critical condition in intensive care.

After Gary Cahill opened the scoring for Chelsea, the defender raised his jersey to reveal a "Pray 4 Muamba" T-shirt in tribute to his former Bolton teammate.
