Full-time Chelsea 2-1 Everton

An entertaining encounter at Stamford Bridge. Goals from Rudiger and Willian secure Chelsea's passage to the last eight of the Carabao Cup, but Everton will count themselves unfortunate to not have s taken the game to extra-time.

Unsworth's side were in complete control in the second half, but they just lacked the clinical edge that may haunt them until January.

That ends IB Times UK's coverage of Chelsea vs Everton, but do head over to our other liveblog - Tottenham trail West Ham United at Wembley.

21:39

Two very quick goals in stoppage time!

Willian scores a fine goal, combining excellently with Fabregas and shooting with unerring accuracy.

Straight from the kick-off, Everton go up the pitch and halve the deficit as tireless work from Niasse hands Calvert-Lewin to tuck away from close-range.

21:37

GOAL! Chelsea 2-1 Everton (Calvert-Lewin)

21:36

GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Everton (Willian)

21:36

Swarbrick with another idiotic decision as he hands Chelsea a foul for no real reason whatsoever.

Chelsea launch the ball upfield and win a corner from Kenny.

Fabregas takes it short to Willian...

21:34

Four additional minutes to be played.

Everton win a free-kick in Chelsea's half. Baines takes it short to Lookman, who shoots well, well wide of goal. Poor from the youngster.

21:32

Morata switches the ball brilliantly to Zappacosta, who cuts inside and lets fly, but Baines blocks.

Chelsea win a throw-in high up the pitch, Zappacosta causes more problems, but Everton eventually clear.

21:30

Mirallas and Fabregas both on the floor after a coming together. Fabregas went in wildy on Mirallas, who caught the Spaniard with his foot as he fell from the air.

21:28

Chelsea get very lucky as Fabregas wins a foul out of Niasse. If the referee didn't blow, Lookman could have been baring down on goal.

Final change for Chelsea - Batshuayi off, Morata on. Not long left to play.

21:25

Lookman goes close!

The young winger turns Kenedy inside out and flashes a shot that clips the top of the bar! Everton getting closer and closer.

Unsworth makes a final change - Rooney off, Niasse on.

21:22

Incredible defensive work from Jagielka stops it from being 2-0! Rooney's backpass evade Williams and frees Batshuayi, who bares down on goal after nipping the ball past Pickford, but Jagielka manages to see the ball wide for a corner.

Batshuayi collided with the post, but is okay to carry on.

21:21

Lovely attacking play from Everton sets up Lookman, who fires into the side netting. Mirallas, Davies and Baines combine ever so well to tee up the youngster, who was always going to struggle.

21:19

Davies and Baines link up well. The former whips in a good cross that Caballero does well to punch away.

Everton come again though, and Caballero makes another error after Cahill undercooks a backpass.

21:16

Second Everton change - Lennon comes of for Ademola Lookman.

21:16

Rudiger has lost all composure . He gives away another foul in a dangerous area and has some choice words with Mirallas. Silly.

Baines takes it short to Davies, who fires well over the bar. Less than 20 minutes to go.

21:14

Chelsea make another change, with Musonda coming off for Pedro.

The Spaniard will try to pin Everton back - the visitors have been very much on top during the second period.

21:12

Chelsea attack with Willian, whose cross is spilled but eventually gathered by Pickford, who sends Calvert-Lewin away. The young striker fouls Christensen, but Everton come again through Mirallas, whose shot is beaten away by Caballero.

21:10

Rudiger, who feels likes he was fouled by Calvert-Lewin, sees red and flies into Mirallas. The German, quite rightly, gets a yellow and hands Everton a free-kick in a dangerous position.

Baines takes, Jagielka flicks on but Caballero parries the ball away.

21:09

Calvert-Lewin is involved immediately and wins a corner out of Rudiger.

Baines to take but Williams can't get the better of marker. Chelsea try to counter but Lennon boots the ball into the stands.

21:07

Everton are set to make a change.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, wearing a mask after suffering a facial injury against Arsenal, comes on for James McCarthy. Bold from Unsworth - will it pay off?

21:05

Mirallas crosses for Lennon, who should make it 1-1! The winger darts into the box and tries to glance the ball in, but Kenedy deflects for a corner.

Chelsea counter through Musonda, who is scythed down by Jagielka, who takes out Baningime in the process. Yellow card for the Everton skipper.

A change for Chelsea; Cesc Fabregas comes on in place of Danny Drinkwater.

21:03

Mirallas plays a nice ball out to Lennon, who again finds Kenny on the overlap. The right-back crosses for Davies, but Rudiger nods the ball away for a corner, which again comes to nothing. Everton on top right now.

21:00

Caballero almost gifts Everton an equaliser!

The Argentine's awful pass goes straight to Lennon, who just can't get the ball under his spell, allowing the Chelsea goalkeeper to clear.

20:59

A great ball from Davies finds Lennon, who plays the ball to Kenny. The young right-back crosses into the box, Mirallas nods on for Rooney, who is denied by Caballero.

Everton corner, comes to nothing.
