Everton dump out Blues

Published Add your comment

Everton dumped holders Chelsea out of the FA Cup today after winning a dramatic penalty shootout 4-3 at Stamford Bridge.

Phil Neville scored the winning spot-kick, with Nicolas Anelka and Ashley Cole both missing for the Blues, whose quest for an historic hat-trick of cup wins lay in tatters.

Chelsea wasted a hatful of chances to win the fourth-round replay in normal time and Frank Lampard finally gave them a 104th-minute lead but Leighton Baines levelled in the 119th minute with a brilliant free-kick.

The full-back missed Everton's first penalty in the shootout but it did not matter as the Toffees set up a last-16 tie with Reading.
