Chelsea 2 Everton 1: Rudiger and Willian send spirited Toffees out

Chelsea booked their place in the last eight of the Carabao Cup after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back straight afterwards, but it was too late to inspire an Everton comeback.

Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth is ready to take the job fulltime.

Unsworth, 44, recalled Tom Davies, Kevin Mirallas, James McCarthy and Aaron Lennon, each having become peripheral under Koeman despite providing the pace Everton have obviously missed.

Impressing on his senior debut in Everton's midfield, Beni Baningime spurred the Toffees into life after the restart with a crunching challenge on Ethan Ampadu - Jonjoe Kenny firing wide from the resulting counter.

Chelsea have set their sights on Napoli boss Mauricio Sarri as the heir to Antonio Conte, according to reports in Italy.

It worked, though, as Everton were by far the better team in the second half.

Oumar Niasse and Calvert-Lewin had by then already been introduced from the bench, and when Niasse's ambitious run took him into the penalty area and Chelsea struggled to clear, Calvert-Lewin routinely sent the loose ball beyond Caballero and into the back of the net for the visitors' consolation.

The Brazilian played a sharp one-two with Cesc Fabregas before firing an unstoppable shot low to Pickford's left which flew in off the post.

The west London side have won the title in two of the last three Premier League seasons, but they did not have the distraction of European football last term under Conte.

Plenty of rotation will on the cards with the likes of Charly Musonda and Kenedy expected to get some game time for the Premier League champions.

Conte chose to freshen his attack up after bringing Cesc Fábregas, Pedro and Álvaro Morata on to see things out.
