Liverpool Book FA Cup Semi-Final Place Against Aston Villa

By  |  0 Comments
Liverpool recovered from the disappointment of losing successive Premier League matches to reach the FA Cup semi-final after beating Blackburn Rovers 1-0.
A cagey affair with few chances was always going to be decided by the odd goal and one moment of quality decided it twenty minutes from time, Philippe Coutinho exchanging passes with Jordan Henderson before rifling his sixth of the season past Simon Eastwood from a tight angle.
Blackburn were not without chances of their own and nearly snatched a dramatic late equaliser when keeper Eastwood controlled and volleyed straight at a scrambling Simon Mignolet, who grabbed at the second attempt.

But Liverpool were worthy winners on the night despite their depleted ranks and will now face Aston Villa for a spot in the FA Cup final when the teams meet at Wembley on Sunday April 19.
