Liverpool FC celebrates next cup party

Jürgen Klopp can continue to hope for the next of four possible titles in his final season with Liverpool FC.

Three days after winning the League Cup, the Premier League leaders advanced to the quarter-finals of the prestigious FA Cup. The Reds won 3-0 (1-0) against second division club Southampton FC in their round of 16 at Anfield Road.

As in the League Cup, Klopp, whose team has been complaining about bad luck with injuries for weeks, sent a young team onto the field.

And so it was 18-year-old striker Lewis Koumas who took the lead for the hosts in the 44th minute on his professional debut.

The second goal was also scored by an 18-year-old: Jayden Danns, who came on for Koumas in the 63rd minute (73rd/88th minute), made the final score with a brace. For the young player, these were also his first goals with the professionals.

Chelsea FC and Manchester United continue to tremble

Chelsea FC, who were still behind in the cup against Liverpool, won 3-2 (2-1) at home against Leeds United from the Championship. But the favorite had to tremble, Conor Gallagher only scored the winning goal in the 90th minute.

Manchester United won 1-0 (0-0) at league rivals Nottingham Forest thanks to a late goal from Casemiro (89th) and are in the next round, as are Wolverhampton Wanderers, who also won 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion ( 1:0) won.
