Everton will host Chelsea at Goodison Park in the Carling Cup fourth round.

Everton have a respectable recent record against Chelsea, unbeaten in the last five encounters, winning 2 and drawing 3, scoring 6 and conceding 4 in the process.

From the five, the most recent encounter between the sides in was at Goodison Park in May, when a magical display from 10 man Everton overcome Londoners Chelsea 1-0 on the final day of the season thanks to a wonder strike from Jermaine Beckford. With 15 minutes to go, Beckford picked the ball up on the edge of his own area and began running at Chelsea players. He beat one, ghosted between two, beat another two, got a bit of luck with a ricochet off a defenders leg on the halfway line, but ran on to the ball, bore down on Cech one on one, and calmly clipped the ball into the back of the net, sending Goodison Park wild.
