Out of-favour keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga made an impressive save to keep scores level after being handed rare start in Thomas Tuchel’s much-changed side for FA Cup clash
And the Tykes have been the better side comfortably. They could have two goals. They should’ve had at least one through Callum Brittain, who hit Kepa from yards out, and then just before the HT whistle from Adeboyejo.
Chelsea have been pedestrian, sloppy with their passing and lacking in imagination – even though they were wrongly denied a penalty after Abraham was felled.
Barnsley will be delighted. Tuchel will need to think things over because it hasn’t come together just yet. The home side look confident in their game plan and it’s working.
He’s not got too many game-changers on the bench but expect Olivier Giroud to come on at some point.
Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 3-1 win at Swansea – their 15th successive victory in all competitions, which is a new record for a top-flight team in English football history.
Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus were on target as Pep Guardiola won his 200th game as Man City manager, with Swansea pulling one back late on through debutant Morgan Whittaker.
Manchester City have not lost since November and never looked like getting beaten here, as they took charge from the outset and went ahead on the half hour when Walker’s cross missed everyone in a crowded penalty area and rolled into the net.
If the goal was a little soft, it was no more than the visitors deserved given their control.
A Swansea revival looked unlikely, and any slim home hopes were quickly extinguished in the second half.
First Sterling found time and space to roll a shot low into the bottom corner of the net, then Jesus turned and steered home from close range.
Swansea’s application was rewarded late on when Whittaker, who had only been on the pitch 12 minutes, finished smartly from Ryan Manning’s cross.
