By Staff Reporter, Posted: 02/18/13 12:01AM EST

Chelsea drubbed League One side Brentford 4-0 at Stamford Bridge Sunday afternoon to progress into the round five of the FA Cup.

And once again veteran players Frank Lampard and captain John Terry came up with impressive goals, helping the side register an easy win.

Lampard, 34, would be out of contract at the end of this season in the summer but he hasn't been offered a new deal by Blues Russian owner Roman Abramovich. Terry, meanwhile, was rested by interim manager Rafeal Bentiez during their Europa Cup 1-0 win over Sparta Prague on Thursday.

Hosts Chelsea started off in blazing fashion putting early pressure on their rivals, but they failed to score any goal in the first half.

Oscar's shot at the goal kissed the post before Lampard failed to find the target from a close range minutes away from the interval.

Visitors Brentford did manage to put the ball in the net in the first half. Marcello Trotta's strike was ruled out on account of a foul move.

On restart, Chelsea stepped up the intensity and went on to score all the four goals in the second half.

Chelsea's Spain international Juan Mata drew first blood in the 56th minute, scoring off a fine shot from 20 yards before he was headed a pass by Demba Ba.

Oscar, who had scored the only goal during their 1-0 win over Sparta Prague, doubled the lead in the 12th minute. The Brazilian playmaker flicked in the ball from six yards off a pass from Branislav

In the 72nd minute, Lampard scored the third goal for Chelsea off a lofted pass from Mata. With this goal, Lampard is just three goals off becoming the club's all-time leading goalscorer.

When just six minutes were left for the final whistle, captain Terry headed in a goal off a cross from Oscar as the hosts drubbed Brentford 4-0 to make their way into the round five of the FA Cup.

Chelsea will now travel to Middlesbrough for a place in the quarter-finals.
