Tammy Abraham scored his fourth FA Cup goal of the season as Chelsea edged past an impressive Barnsley 1-0 to set up a quarter-final tie against Sheffield United.The striker had scored a hat-trick against Luton in the fourth round - in what proved to be Frank Lampard's final game in charge - and found the net again with a close-range finish in the 64th minute, which proved to be Chelsea's only shot on target. Barnsley pushed their Premier League opponents all the way, particularly in the first half, managing 14 shots to Chelsea's six. Callum Brittain forced a reaction save from Kepa Arrizabalaga early on before Abraham cleared a flicked effort from Michael Sollbauer off the line as the hosts piled on the pressure in the final 15 minutes.It was an ultimately scrappy performance from a much-changed Chelsea side, but Abraham's goal ensures their place in the quarter-finals, setting up a home tie against Sheffield United in March.More to follow...
