Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez said after the match he's leaving after the season.

Chelsea set up an eye-catching FA Cup quarterfinal against Manchester United by beating second-tier Middlesbrough 2-0 in the fifth round on Wednesday thanks to second-half goals by Ramires and Victor Moses.

Unconvincing in the first half, the defending champions improved after the break and Ramires opened the scoring in the 51st minute by curling in a shot from the edge of the area that took a slight deflection of Fernando Torres.

Moses sealed victory at Riverside Stadium for a Chelsea team featuring several fringe players, tapping home in the 73rd minute after good work by fellow forward Oscar.

Chelsea, which has won the FA Cup in four of the last six seasons, will play United - the current Premier League leader - at Old Trafford on March 10.
