A big night (for Everton) at Goodison Park and it was a no surprise that they were really up for it' and came out with all guns blazing. That said it was SWP who had the first real chance seeing his shot from the edge of the box get deflected for a corner. Cech saved a 6 yard box scramble following a Lescott header and that seemed to spur Everton on again but in reality, the Blues were bossing the half with Anelka, Malouda and Belletti all going close.
Within a minute of the second-half starting, Anelka found space on the edge of the box and drove a shot that rattled the Everton bar. SWP had a shot cleared by Lescott and it really looked like a goal was coming however once again Everton rallied and we needed to good saves from Cech to keep the Toffees at bay.
And then it was all over.... a pin-point cross field pass from Malouda dropped beautifully over Joe Cole's head, he brought it down and in one movement rifled the ball past Howard.
That was it; game over and we're on our way to Wembley - AGAIN!!
