Chelsea overcame fear of Luton in the FA Cup moments after Roman Abramovich announced he was selling as Blues fans chanted the owners’ names and Hatters supporters chanted ‘you’re sold in the morning’

Chelsea overcame a scare at Luton to advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 3-2 victory on a night when Roman Abramovich announced he was selling the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel’s side took to the pitch moments after Abramovich confirmed his 19-year ownership of Chelsea was coming to an end, in order to protect the club from the fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Chelsea looked shaken but got the job done

A stunned Blues side conceded within the opening two minutes, as Reece Burke led the Championship side in front.

Saul Niguez brought the visitors level but Harry Cornick restored the Hatters’ lead against the run of play before halftime.

Tuchel’s men would eventually regain their composure and prevail thanks to early goals from Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues faithful chanted the name of Abramovich, who revealed all net proceeds from the sale will go to war victims in Ukraine, and also canceled £1.5billion the club owe him.

Meanwhile, the rest of Kenilworth Road sang “You’re sold in the morning”.
