Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool: Blues give Reds 3rd loss in 4 games & knock visitors out

Goals from Willian and Ross Barkley, plus some excellent saves from Kepa Arrizabalaga, helped Chelsea reach the quarter-finals.

Chelsea moved into the last eight of the FA Cup as they handed Liverpool a second successive defeat, beating the runaway Premier League leaders 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

Having lost for the first time in the league this season at Watford on Saturday, another trip down south saw the Reds suffer a further setback in an otherwise outstanding season.

Willian got lucky in the 13th minute as he benefited from an Adrian error to give the home side an early lead in the first meeting of the teams in the competition since the 2012 final.

The Blues doubled their advantage in the second half courtesy of Ross Barkley, though not before the recalled Kepa Arrizabalaga had kept a much-changed Liverpool at bay.
