Bantams attacker Filipe Morais has described City's stunning F.A Cup victory over Chelsea this Saturday as a history-making achievement.

Morais, who started his professional career with the Blues, scored once and had a hand in two other goals as Phil Parkinson's team amazingly came from two down to beat Jose Mourinho's all-stars at Stamford Bridge.

Thanks to their outstanding victory, City became only the second English club ever to defeat Mourinho's Chelsea in a home match. They also became the first side to win at Stamford Bridge this season and the first side to score four goals past Chelsea on home soil during either one of Mourinho's two spells in charge.

Morais: "What an achievement - we've just made history.

"Nobody normally comes to Chelsea and does what we have just done.

"Our second half performance was just mind-blowing. I am so proud to play for this football club.

"The fans throughout the whole game were unbelievable - we are all just so delighted.

"We are all so high on emotion at the moment - it is a great feeling.

"I tried not to celebrate too much when I scored because Chelsea moulded me and I have so much respect for Mr Mourinho but I was just overcome with emotion.

"The fans were incredible. I love this club - it is a real honour to play for this club.

"I love playing for this shirt - I wanted to jump in with the fans and celebrate when I'd scored, I was just so overjoyed!

"We were confident before the game and we were confident even at half time. We know we have threats in this side.

"If we stuck to the game plan, we knew we could do something here. Doing what we have done though completely surpasses what we could have ever dreamed of.

"I was disappointed in myself at half time for giving the second goal away. Thankfully though, we managed to get back in the game and I helped in that.

"I've never been at a club with support like this. I've never seen such a vocal and passionate support at a club that I have played for before.

"The manager said at half time that attacking to our fans in the second half would play its part and it certainly did.

"I can't thank the fans enough for their support - they were absolutely unbelievable."
