Chelsea booked their place in the last eight of the Carabao Cup after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge.Antonio Rudiger (26) scored his first goal for the club since SBOBET joining from Roma as he rose unmarked at the far post to meet Charly Musonda's short corner.Everton, who had caretaker boss David Unsworth in the dugout, had their opportunities to equalise in the second period when Ademola Lookman's shot skimmed the crossbar, before Willian scored a brilliant second in stoppage time (90+2).

Man of the match: Willian (Chelsea)
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (90+4) pounced to bundle the ball over the line moments later but it proved nothing more than a consolation as Antonio Conte's side booked their place in the quarter-finals.Everton began the game on the front foot with Unsworth, on the touchline for the first time since becoming interim manager following the sacking of SBOBET Ronald Koeman, making his presence felt.Despite the away side showing good aggression, it was Chelsea who produced the one moment of class in an uneventful opening half.ust as in the Premier League encounter between these two sides, Everton were punished for a lapse in concentration as Rudiger peeled off Williams at the far post to meet Musonda's cross to score after 26 minutes.It was a fine header back across goal which left Pickford with no chance, but the Toffees emerged for the second half with renewed belief.So dominant in the first 45 minutes, Chelsea afforded their opponents several chances as Wayne Rooney was denied from close range by Willy Caballero following a knock-down by Kevin Mirallas.

Caballero was called upon twice more in quick succession to deny Mirallas before a slack back-pass from Rooney nearly allowed Michy Batshuayi to score a second before a desperate last-ditch clearance from Phil Jagielka.Lookman looked bright off the bench for the visitors and the England Under 21 international nearly levelled when his fierce left-foot shot clipped the bar, before Willian appeared to have put the game to bed.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.Calvert-Lewin pulled a goal back deep into stoppage time, but it is Chelsea SBOBET who enter the quarter-final draw on Thursday afternoon
