Chelsea ended Liverpool’s hopes of a historic treble and booked their place in the FA Cup quarter finals after a superb 2-0 win.

As Adrian’s howler handed Willian a first-half winner, the Blues ultimately had their own man between the sticks to thank.

Kepa Arrizabalaga made a triumphant as he kept Jurgen Klopp’s side at bay with a series of stunning saves.

Indeed it was the perfect response to his manager Frank Lampard, who had not started him in goal since January.

Boyhood Evertonian Ross Barkley compounded what was a miserable night for the red half of Merseyside as his stunning second-half strike completed a deserved victory for the hosts, who remain well and truly on the road to Wembley.
