Raheem Sterling breaks silence after Chelsea fans booed him in FA Cup quarter-final win

Raheem Sterling breaks silence after Chelsea fans booed him in FA Cup quarter-final win

The Stamford Bridge attacker was booed as he was taken off in Chelsea's FA Cup quarter-final win over Leicester City

Raheem Sterling has vowed to return "10 times stronger" after being booed by Chelsea fans in an FA Cup quarter-final win over Leicester City.

The Blues booked their place at Wembley with a 4-2 victory against the Championship leaders at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Marc Cucurella put the hosts ahead before Sterling won and then took a penalty, which he fired tamely at Leicester goalkeeper Jakub Stolarczyk.

Sterling subsequently made amends for his miss by teeing up Cole Palmer who doubled Chelsea's lead before half-time.

But the Foxes fought back after the break to level.

Firstly, Axel Disasi's own-goal got Enzo Maresca's side back into the encounter, before Stephy Mavididi drew the Foxes level with a fabulous strike.

A key turning point came with 17 minutes of normal time to go when Leicester defender Callum Doyle was sent off and the visitors were reduced to 10 men.

And substitutes Carney Chukwuemeka and Noni Madueke both struck in injury time to ensure Chelsea booked their place in the semi-finals and a trip to Wembley.

Chelsea fans made their feelings clear throughout the game, chanting "you don't know what you're doing" at Pochettino following his decision to take off Mykhailo Mudryk in the second-half.

And Sterling was also the focus of their attentions too, as supporters appeared to boo him after he blasted a free-kick over the bar.

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has vowed to back the former Manchester City and Liverpool man after a difficult game.

And Sterling has now taken to Instagram to have his say on the afternoon as he apologised for missing his penalty and vowed to return "10 times stronger" to help the London side succeed.

He wrote: "Wembley Bound. To all the Chelsea fans, apologies for the penalty miss.

"I’ll be back 10x times stronger to help the team win and continue to keep fighting for the badge every single day. Let’s Go Blues."

And it is clear Sterling has the backing of his team-mates as several of them commented on his post offering their support to him.

Goalscorer Palmer wrote: "My brother. S**t happens no need to apologise gg."

Fellow goalscorer Madueke said: "Bro no need to apologise.. we appreciate you g."

And defender Ben Chilwell added: "It's football, it happens. We all appreciate you brother.
