What another great result for Chelsea tonight. Everton away is a hard place to go and get a result, especially having to make the long trip up north in midweek!. This was a game that had everything, three goals, two players sent off and two missed penalties. There was plenty of goal mouth action too and once again frustratingly we failed to keep a clean sheet!

Nico Anelka missed a penalty in the first half after Josh McEachran was brought down by a rash challenge from Heitinga. We took the lead as a Kalou cross was fumbled by Mucha in goal for Everton and the ball found it's way into the net.

Second half, Louis Saha (the scourge of Chelsea) was brought down inside the box by a silly tackle from Ross Turnbull and as the penalty was awarded, Turnbull was shown red!. Lukaku was hauled off for Petr Cech to take his place in goal and thank god we had him there. Leighton Baines fired his penalty straight at Cech who blocked his first attempt, as the ball came back to Baines, Cech was up like a flash and was there to block it for a second time as Baines hammered it goal wards. The ball rebounded up in the air and Tim Cahill headed wide!. Great first couple of touches from the big man!.

Chelsea with ten men needed to dig in and we did once again. On the back foot as Everton came forward with wave after wave of attacks, we managed to break on them and Nico Anelka shot straight at the keeper.

Everton continued to press and got their rewards as Louis Saha managed to get in front of David Luiz with a run towards the near post and directed his header from a Coleman cross inside the near post to make it 1-1.

Everton on the up continued to come forward. Drenthe clipped the bar with a free kick and fired wide from a tight angle and they missed an open goal from a free header eight yards out!.

Into extra time and this is where Chelsea managed to re-group and get their foot on the ball once more. Ivanovic forced the keeper into a save from outside the box, and Malouda and Anelka tested the keeper again. Then, Drenthe was shown a second yellow card to level things up ten a side which helped!

Chelsea nicked the win as Danny Sturridge on for Kalou, pounced on shot from Malouda parried directly into his path by Mucha and he slid the ball home into the far corner under the keeper.

AVB described the win as "massive" and he was right. With Arsenal, United, City, Liverpool, Blackburn, Palace and Cardiff with us in the draw for the quarter finals, Chelsea are looking to kick on.

The last two games have asked questions of our squad of players in testing times and they have come out of them with flying colours. You cannot deny our teamwork, hunger and desire.

This was massive and we are in the quarter finals!
