Ross Barkley’s wonder strike helped Chelsea knock out Liverpool and reach the last eight of the FA Cup.

It was a tale of two keepers at Stamford Bridge as Adrian, deputising for the rested Alisson, made a howler to allow Willian to give Chelsea the lead on 13 minutes.

Kepa recently dropped by Lampard for his poor performances, then produced a stunning triple save to keep the home side in the lead at half time.

Evertonian Barkley scored a goal to savour to put the game beyond the reach of Jurgen Klopp’s side after the break.

The England international picked the ball up on the halfway line and drove forward at the Liverpool defence before rifling a right-footed effort beyond Adrian’s dive.

Klopp sent on Roberto Firmino and former Chelsea player Mo Salah to try and salvage the tie but to little avail, as the Blues held on to put their name in the hat for Wednesday night’s quarter-final draw.
