Chelsea, Liverpool march on

LONDON - Chelsea and Liverpool have each avoided potential FA Cup third-round banana skins with victories over lower-league opponents, but West Ham United were thrashed 5-0 by Nottingham Forest.

Chelsea beat in-form Championship side Derby County 2-0, with Liverpool avenging their shock defeat by third-tier Oldham Athletic in last season's competition with a 2-0 success at Anfield.

West Ham became the second Premier League team to be eliminated by lower-league opposition in this season's competition when they were crushed 5-0 by Championship side Forest at the City Ground.

A day after Aston Villa fell to third-tier Sheffield United, West Ham were undone by a 14-minute hat-trick from Forest forward Jamie Paterson, sandwiched by an early Djamel Abdoun penalty and a late Andy Reid strike.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce made nine changes to his starting XI and gave debuts to three young players.
