Liverpool continue poor form with FA Cup defeat

 

After a blistering start to the season. A run off 44 league games without defeat. The Reds have now lost three out of their last four matches in all competitions.

It all started against Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 UEFA champions league.

The Reds were beaten 1-0 by Diego Simeone’s side. They were comprehensively beaten by struggling Watford, before losing to Chelsea in the 5th round of the Fa cup.

Chelsea were the more determined side between the two sides, recalled Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalga pulled off a stunning triple save as Willian and Ross Barkley’s strikes condemned Liverpool to a third defeat in four matches.

With the poor run of form of the Reds, they still have a 22 point lead in the Premier league and they are still on course to win their maiden premier league title, the first in three decades.

Cheslea’s victory over Liverpool came at a cost as the blues recorded injuries to first team players. Willian and Kovacic picked up knocks and they will be out for a couple of weeks.

Chelsea could now face Everton in Sunday’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge missing as many as nine frontline stars.

Chelsea opened the scoring in the 13th minutes, when a routine pass out from the back fell kindly to William, the Brazilian international took a touch before shooting emphatically towards goal. Adrian should have done better with the shot but Willian wouldn’t mind.

The second goal arrived in the 64th minute when Chelsea broke forward with Barkley, the England international picked the bottom corner, and there’s little Adrian could do this time around.
