FA CUP Everton 1 Chelsea 1

A second-half strike by substitute Salomon Kalou earned Chelsea a home replay against Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Louis Saha gave the Toffees the lead when he headed past Petr Cech from Leighton Baines' right-wing corner.
But Kalou equalised for Chelsea within five minutes of coming on when he slotted in from 12 yards.
Chelsea's Ramires hit the post with a shot late on, while Nicolas Anelka and Everton Jack Rodwell had efforts saved.
Chelsea, looking to become the first team to win three successive FA Cup titles since Blackburn in the 1880s, and Everton, without a trophy since 1995, both fielded strong sides.
The Blues' record-run began, ironically, against Everton in 2009 and nine of the 11 that started were back on duty today.
