The Blues had not lost at their west London home all season and it looked like that trend would continue after they went 2-0 ahead after goals from Gary Cahill and Ramires.

But Jon Stead pulled a goal back for Bradford before the break, while Felipe Morais equalised before Halliday gave the visitors the lead.

The hosts pushed forward but it was Bradford who finished the scoring through Mark Yeates.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Halliday said: "We are speechless. Two-nil down against arguably the best team in Europe and to come back like we did - you will struggle to see a better performance at Stamford Bridge this season.

"Before kick-off we knew we were capable, but we went 2-0 down so early on.

"It went through our mind to get the next goal and when we did we knew we had to show more intent and less respect to Chelsea in the second half. We were outstanding in the second half."
