Ross Barkley inspires Chelsea against Liverpool to reach FA Cup last eight - MW

If Chelsea needed it, Ross Barkley certainly needed it. And the Evertonian youth could hardly choose a better opponent to punish. Chelsea Chelsea's midfield career since leaving Goodison Park in January 2018 can be described as stopping the start.

No one doubted Barkley's ability at the time. These days were rare. It all combined with him in a touch of contact and influence and the goal he scored to help Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinals was a defining moment.

Grabbing a 10-meter loose ball in his half, he missed Liverpool midfielder Fabinho and, when he reached the edge of the area, with Joe Gomez backing away, he opened a malicious torn road. Adrián. It was the first time in 12 games he had scored against Liverpool.

Chelsea's form has been mediocre since late November and they only participated in the game winning one of the previous six in the Premier League - not to mention the Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

It's better on their part, keeping their last real shot in silverware this season, but in Liverpool's opinion, it's another bizarre ineffective performance to follow the shocking 7. 0 loss to Saturdayford before Watford.

The pre-game interview was held in need of showing his reaction to the sudden end of their unbeaten 44-game tournament. Instead, they lost in the third straight loss - the first game is not necessarily the final, with a score of 1-0 against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League. It was a match where Klopp not only lamented what he described as a bad concession, but his team could be attacked a bit. There is intensity for performance but not enough by incision.

The melody was fixed for Liverpool when Adrián allowed a stroke of Willian to pass through his finger 1-0 - a terrible mistake - and, despite Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was recovered by Frank Lampard. The Chelsea team, well saved, Chelsea could have scored more goals.

For Lampard, positivity is abundant, the withdrawal of Arrizabalaga is not the only profitable decision. Playing at the base of a three-player midfielder, Billy Gilmour was the star. The 18-year-old read the game wonderfully, he won, his passes were simple but effective and the scene of him coming out of red shirts with the ball at his feet turned backwards. in a stroke of the match. There was also a time when he deceived Fabinho with great skill. Lampard describes him as an immaculate German.

It was Klopp's first time in the fifth round of the FA Cup, his competitive performance was determined to improve in the previous four attempts, and he was stronger than expected with his team. He favors experience rather than youth, although he started adolescents Neco Williams and Curtis Jones. Later, he showed great confidence in possession, but lost to Pedro impressed with Barkley's goal-building.

Error is a subject; Perhaps a byproduct of fast-paced gaming. Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rüdiger almost arrived in Liverpool during the first hours of the operation, Arrizabalaga awaits his team with a good stop to refuse Sadio Mané for the second time.

However, the biggest shift came from Adrián. He followed a series of unconscious risks from Liverpool from behind - in the Chelsea press - with Gomez causing problems for Fabinho, he lost and Willian targeted from the edge of the area.

A few seconds earlier, after a shot from Pedro deflected, Willian put his lace on the ball and was rejected by Adrián's strong hand. It was a catchy economy. But this time, despite a direct hit on him, Adrián lost his attention and searched him in the net.

Pedro and César Azpilicueta had already had the chance of Chelsea and, after Adrián, the time out, the spotlights took again Arrizabalaga. It was a test for the Spanish, with Euro 2020 in sight. How can he push his requirements to start with his national team from the sidelines at Stamford Bridge?

Arrizabalaga needed a great performance and he held out well in advance, his climax being a triple stop to reject Mané, Divock Origi and Jones, a memory of courage, positioning and reflexes. . There will also be another which will annoy Mané after a rapid explosion from the front.

Lampard had reason to complain about injuries, Andreas Christensen, Golo Kanté, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham not working. The situation got worse when Mateo Kovacic limped after 42 minutes and Willian did the same at the start of the second half.

Both suffered damage to Achilles, Lampard later reporting, not feeling too bad. Kovacic was a little worse and Lampard will be out of Jorginho for the next three games due to a suspension.

Chelsea continued on and they thought they had the second goal when Mason Mount broke a free kick he won from the wall just to catch the top of the crossbar.

Barkley brings cruelty and pain to Liverpool Liverpool will be more intense if Pedro does not shoot Adrián weakly one by one after a combination of Williams and Gomez or if the goalkeeper does not hit Olivier Giroud's shot in the crossbar.
