Chelsea are into the quarter finals of the FA Cup.
An impressive 2-0 home win against runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool ensured that Frank Lampard’s men are into the next round.
Goals from Willian and Ross Barkley either side of half-time were enough to see the Blues beat off Jurgen Klopp’s men although a first half injury to midfielder Mateo Kovacic did put a slight dampener on the night.
Concentration now turns to a game against the Blue half of Merseyside with Everton the visitors to Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

The game was just the 18-year-old’s sixth first team appearance in a Chelsea shirt and just his third start, but he took the chance with both hands, being named the man of the match by the BBC.
Chelsea fans showed their appreciation by singing his name in the closing stages of the game, while the Scotsman earned praise from teammate Ross Barkley after the full-time whistle.
Former Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas gave the lowdown on what makes him such an impressive young midfielder, and the Chelsea dressing room also had their say on his performance.
