FA Cup highlights: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea tried to rattle Liverpool right from the start as Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian was forced to make an early save from Willian. However, minutes later the Spaniard turned from a hero to villain after his howler saw Willian score for the Blues in the 13th minute. Fabinho was caught in possession, allowing Willian to unleash a powerful shot, which the goalkeeper failed to handle. 

Liverpool had a great opportunity to equalise but failed to as Kepa Arrizabalaga made a stunning triple save to keep his clean sheet intact. Arrizabalaga first blocked a shot from Sadio Mane before denying attempts by Divock Origi and Curtis Jones in quick succession.

In the second half, Chelsea sealed their win when former Everton player Ross Barkley made a surging run towards Liverpool goal before beating Adrian with a well-timed shot. Chelsea were clearly the better side and deservedly booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-final. Frank Lampard's men could have easily had a couple of goals more to further embarrass Liverpool.
