Liverpool-born Ross Barkley helped dump the Reds out the FA Cup as Chelsea booked a spot in the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory.
The Blues took the lead in the 13th minute through Willian, although he was helped by a mistake by Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian.
The Spaniard had produced two fine saves to deny Ross Barkley and Willian earlier in the match.
However, Fabinhog giftedt ball to Willian just 20 yards from his own goal, witht theChelsea winger firing straight at Adrian who could only palm the effort into the net.
At Stamford Bridge, Kepa justified his starting position in goal after denying Sadio Mane, Divock Origi and Curtis Jones in a terrific triple save.
That proved pivotal as Barkey struck after the break to wrap up victory for the home side which eventually killed Liverpool hopes of wrapping up a treble this season.
