Joe Cole scores the only goal of the Carling Cup semi Final, second-leg match between Everton and Chelsea at Goodison Park. Everton have not beaten Chelsea since November 2000, a hoodoo of Arsenal vs Spurs proportions. Incidentally, Petr Cech played last night despite his wife giving birth to their first child – who said the Carling Cup wasn’t important? Chelsea fans should be thankful for Cech’s selflessness – the big goalkeeper was their man of the match, and made several crucial saves in the second half. Credit also goes to Chelsea’s back four, admirably marshalled by Ricardo Carvalho.
