A solitary goal from Ross Barkley was the difference in the evening as Chelsea edged out Leicester to progress into the FA Cup semi-final.

The 63rd minute incredible finish was sent by Brazilian Willian before Barkley tapped in to go past Kasper Schmeichel.

Playing in an empty stadium, Frank Lampard changed the game by introducing three substitutes Ross Barkley, Cesar Azpilicueta and Mateo Kovacic who turned tables at King Power Stadium.

Leicester pilled pressure to the opponents in the last minutes of the match as their efforts were either blocked or cleared away.

Caglar Soyuncu was left frustrated after his header was diverted away by Azplicueta forcing a corner which was then cleared.

It was the second victory for Chelsea in a row having edged out Manchester City over the week to hand Liverpool the deserved EPL cup.

Liverpool who are to meet Manchester City on Thursday, will receive a guard of honour at the Etihad as confirmed by Pep Guardiola.
