Loton Town – FC Chelsea 2: 3 (2: 1)
Chelsea struggled to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. Hours after club owner Roman Abramovich announced his intention to sell the club, he avoided a humiliating 3: 2 (1: 2) defeat in last season’s second division with Louis Vuitton. Two minutes later, Reese Burg, who was sixth in the championship table, took the lead, while Sal Ogius (27th) equalized and then faced Loron with Harry Cornick (40th). In the second half, after the final defeat in the League Cup against Liverpool on Sunday (10:11 after penalties), Chelsea put pressure on a draw, having been replaced by coach Thomas Tucsall for a total of nine places. This was achieved by German national player Timo Werner, who played from the start like his DFB teammate Antonio Rudiger (68th). Romelu Lukaku (78th) finally scored the winning goal for Chelsea.
FC Liverpool – Norwich City 2: 1 (2: 0)
Two goals from Japan’s Takumi Minamino took Liverpool to the quarter – finals of the FA Cup. In the 2-1 (2-0) victory over Norwich City, the attacker set the stage for victory in the first round (27th and 39th) and revived the “Reds” dream of a double national cup victory. Last weekend, Liverpool won the League Cup final against Chelsea in a marathon penalty shootout. Against Norwich, former Bundesliga professional Lucas Roop (76th) was shortlisted, with coach Jர்கrgen Klopp relying heavily on staff from the second tier. For example, Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk are not on the team. Other stars, such as Sadio Mane or Louis Diaz, only played in the finals.
