Player Ratings: Chelsea 1-1 Everton (AET, 3-4 pens)

By Wayne Veysey At Stamford Bridge

  • Petr Cech
    34
    8
    3.00

    Petr Cech

    His decision-making, positioning and catching was spot-on, although he had few genuine saves to make. Could only watch in vain as Baines' free-kick was guided expertly beyond his reach. Saved one of five penalties in the shoot-out.

  • Paulo Ferreira
    15
    25
    2.50

    Paulo Ferreira

    Careless in possession but provided some good early support from the right flank with some dangerous crosses.

  • Branislav Ivanovic
    34
    10
    3.00

    Branislav Ivanovic

    Was forced to make some fine last-ditch interceptions but dealt capably with Everton's second-string strikers in Saha's absence.

  • John Terry
    35
    13
    3.50

    John Terry

    Expertly sniffed out danger and dominated in the air in both penalty boxes but should have given Chelsea a first-half lead when he blazed over with an unmanned goal at his mercy.

  • Ashley Cole
    28
    22
    3.50

    Ashley Cole

    Recovered from Coleman showing him a clean pair of heels early on to deliver a performance of typical assurance and slickness. Blasted his spot-kick over the bar to effectively knock Chelsea out of the FA Cup.

  • Ramires
    27
    22
    3.00

    Ramires

    Encouraging display by the Brazilian, who has shown signs in recent weeks that he is not the dud he appeared in the autumn. He might need to practice his stimulation techniques, however. Booked for blatantly diving in the penalty area in the first half.

  • John Obi Mikel
    20
    38
    2.50

    John Obi Mikel

    Never moved out of second gear (when does he ever?) and was withdrawn at half-time and replaced by Essien.

  • Frank Lampard
    43
    17
    3.50

    Frank Lampard

    Became increasingly influential as the game progressed and Chelsea threw men forward. Came close to opening the scoring with three excellent second-half chances but his sat-nav remained on the blink until extra time, when he finally buried one of half a dozen presentable opportunities. Encouraging for Chelsea that he got in some brilliant goal-scoring positions and, now he has finally delivered that much needed open-play goal, the handbrake can really come off.

  • Florent Malouda
    20
    21
    3.00

    Florent Malouda

    Had Everton's best two chances in the first half, one apiece on his right foot and favoured left, but was brilliantly denied by Howard. His scheming on the left side of midfield helped Chelsea churn out second-half chances. Subbed at the end of normal time.

  • Salomon Kalou
    22
    18
    3.00

    Salomon Kalou

    Deployed as a twin spearhead alongside Drogba rather than on the right flank as expected. His movement troubled Distin but little end product from the Ivorian.

  • Didier Drogba
    17
    32
    3.00

    Didier Drogba

    Curious display from the recalled powerhouse. Went down like he had been shot early on following a Jagielka challenge and spent about 10 minutes wincing, hobbling and walking like an injured war veteran. Perhaps telling that he spent about two minutes on the touchline getting medical attention only a yard or so from Ancelotti and the Italian barely glanced at him. Began to move more freely as the game progressed and came close on a number of occasions to conjuring something special from nothing without being at his best.

Substitutions

  • Michael Essien
    29
    13
    3.50

    Michael Essien

    His dynamism replaced Mikel's more pedestrian style at half-time and helped to make Chelsea a more threatening offensive force.

  • Yuri Zhirkov
    21
    12
    0.00

    Yuri Zhirkov

    Replaced Kalou in the second period of extra time as Chelsea shored up the midfield.

  • Nicolas Anelka
    19
    28
    3.00

    Nicolas Anelka

    His extra-time introduction was the last thing that Everton's defenders would have wanted to see and a bit of magic from the Frenchman duly teed up Lampard for the goal that separated the two teams. Loses credit for his powderpuff penalty, which was lethargic verging on unprofessional.

  • Tim Howard
    57
    4
    4.00

    Tim Howard

    Magnificent display. Made three outstanding point-blank saves, two in the first half from Malouda and another from Lampard after the break. Did not look like a 'keeper who had only kept one clean sheet in his previous 18 games. Saved one penalty in the shoot-out and watched as another was blasted over by Cole.

  • Phil Jagielka
    21
    10
    3.50

    Phil Jagielka

    HIs heavyweight clash with Drogba did not disappoint, although it will not have been lost on the Evertonian that one innocuous-looking challenge prompted 10 minutes of wincing and hobbling from Drogba. A first-class display of power and and authority from the centre-back.

  • Sylvain Distin
    17
    9
    3.50

    Sylvain Distin

    Showed fine powers of anticipation and concentration to make a series of excellent interceptions. Formed a formidable barrier with Jagielka.

  • Leighton Baines
    100
    12
    4.50

    Leighton Baines Top of the Match

    Exceptional performance by the left-back, who defended solidly and provided super support down the flank to Everton's attacks with his forward bursts and pinpoint crosses. Just when Everton looked to be heading out of the FA Cup, his brilliant free-kick at the end of extra time handed his team a lifeline. Even without that dramatic intervention, he had been the best player on the pitch.

  • Phil Neville
    18
    6
    3.00

    Phil Neville

    Typified Everton's resilience with his in-built drive and commitment at right-back. Coolly blasted home the winning penalty.

  • Seamus Coleman
    14
    12
    3.00

    Seamus Coleman

    Had the misfortune of being the Everton player stationed closest to David Moyes in the first half and was given regular lectures on where he was going wrong. Got in some good positions throughout, and although his decision-making and crossing was inconsistent, he was always a threat.

  • Mikel Arteta
    11
    10
    3.00

    Mikel Arteta

    Big-game opponents often bring the best out of the gifted Spaniard and he was Everton's most creative player when he had the ball at his feet.

  • Marouane Fellaini
    22
    3
    3.50

    Marouane Fellaini

    The absence of David Luiz denied spectators the opportunity of a Fellaini-Luiz hair-off. But there was plenty to admire from the Belgian, who adeptly broke up Chelsea's attacks. Had the ball in the net in the 89th minute but was rightly judged to be marginally off-side.

  • Leon Osman
    14
    4
    2.50

    Leon Osman

    Lacked the powers of acceleration to out-pace even the pedestrian Ferreira and one shocking back-pass nearly teed up Lampard for the opening goal. Withdrawn in the first period of extra-time.

  • Tim Cahill
    22
    11
    2.50

    Tim Cahill Flop of the Match

    One of the quietest players on the pitch. Deployed as the workhorse conduit between midfield and attack, he struggled to get involved and was subbed with 20 minutes left.

  • Jermaine Beckford
    11
    8
    2.50

    Jermaine Beckford

    Uncertain display by the striker, whose decimated confidence was demonstrated by his lack of conviction and unwillingness to shoot when he got in some good positions. Never gave up, though.

Substitutions

  • John Heitinga
    12
    6
    3.00

    John Heitinga

    Took on Fellaini's midfield anchorman role as Everton reshuffled their troops in the first period of extra time and then swapped places late on with Jageilka as the visitors searched for an equaliser.

  • Diniyar Bilyaletdinov
    7
    7
    2.50

    Diniyar Bilyaletdinov

    Had some nice touches but struggled to get involved.

  • Victor Anichebe
    11
    2
    3.00

    Victor Anichebe

    Brought greater physical presence to the Everton forward line when he replaced the struggling Beckford.
