Everton vs Chelsea live

  • GOAL! What a strike from the fomer Chelsea man! He receives the ball from midfield, makes a fine run to get past Azpilicueta before dancing around Cahill and driving a low shot past Courtois. Everton 1 Chelsea 0!

  • GOAL FOR EVERTON!! LUKAKU!! 1-0. #EFCvCHE
  • #EFCvCFC LIVE: GOAL! Everton 2 Chelsea 0, Lukaku! bit.ly/EFC-v-CFC #FACup

  • And there is the second for Lukaku! He latches onto the ball and slides an effort through the legs of Courtois to surely seal this tie?!

  • 84 MINS: Costa is off for a second yellow card! Things going from bad to worse for the Chelsea man after he barges Barry, who had just fouled him, and - and we need replays for this - appears to bite the Everton man.

  • Barry is sent off for a second bookable offence. He hacked Fabregas down. #CFCLive
  • Terry and Cahill have joined Remy in attack as we go in search of two late goals. #CFCLive
  • So two red cards for both sides now, but it doesn't matter as Everton are going through!
    3/12/2016 7:20:54 PM
  • So goalscorer and Toffees hero Lukaku goes off for Niasse and, with that, Everton have booked their place in the FA Cup semi-finals at the expense of Chelsea!

  • Lukaku scores again...Chelsea's season is over
  • So Chelsea have now been knocked out of the FA Cup and the Champions League in the space of four days. What a miserable week for a club who won two trophies last season. Questions will be asked of where the club goes from here: a new manager is certainly coming in but what to do with this squad?

  • Chelsea fans will look to the likes of Pedro, Hazard and Oscar and say their performances haven't been good enough this season while Costa, who has been linked with a move away from the club several times, can let his emotions rule him in the most crucial of moments (as shown above).

  • The striker could be in a lot of trouble, though, for that apparent 'bite' on Barry. We'll have to see if any action is taken later.
    3/12/2016 7:36:25 PM
  • Defensively, too, Chelsea have been poor this season. They've had injuries in that department but haven't recruited adequately enough to have world-class back-ups should one of their first-choice men be sidelined. Terry's return is positive, though, although it doesn't look likely that he'll stay at the club - leaving the team without its most effective leader.

  • Let's not detract from a wonderful performance from Lukaku, though. As the stat below shows, the striker is on his way to becoming a Premier League great if he can keep up his goalscoring feats!

  • Rihanna and Drake's 'work' blasting out of Everton dressing room..only entertainment on offer as Chelsea players walk past in silence 1 by 1
  • Pedro is limping out the stadium...not that it matters...no meaningful games to miss now
  • Lukaku on facing Chelsea today:

    "I don't think I have anything to prove to Chelsea, I went there as an 18-year-old and learnt the trade of being a professional footballer. I will always be grateful to them."

  • We'll have more reaction on our site - with a piece coming soon on Hiddink. Thanks for following our live blog - we hope you enjoyed it and, indeed, the actual match! Good night for now!
