Everton 1 Chelsea 2 AET

Team News (new)

Apostolos Vellios was handed his first Everton start in their 3-1 win over Fulham on Sunday, but Louis Saha's goalscoring contribution from the bench means he could return against Chelsea.

Tim Cahill and Seamus Coleman also started as substitutes in West London and will be hoping to win back their places for this fourth round tie.

Chelsea were reduced to nine men in their 1-0 defeat to QPR on Sunday and as a result both Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba are suspended for Wednesday's game.

But Fernando Torres has completed his suspension and will return to the Chelsea squad.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Josh McEachran and Ryan Bertrand played in the last round against Fulham and could feature at Goodison Park.

Match Stats (new)

1. Everton haven't won any of their previous seven meetings with Chelsea in the League Cup - the most recent fixtures between the sides were in 2008 when Avram Grant's team won a two legged semi-final 3-1 on aggregate.

David Moyes' first faced Chelsea as Everton manager in April 2002 and Frank Lampard is the only survivor from either side from that match, which Chelsea won 3-0.

3. After scoring three goals in his first two meetings against Everton, Fernando Torres has failed to find the net against the Blues in his last five meetings.

4. Everton's record win over Chelsea is 6-0 in April 1978 – the day Bob Latchford won a £10,000 newspaper prize for reaching 30 league goals.

5. In 1931 Dixie Dean scored five goals in the space of 27 first-half minutes in our 7-2 win over the London side

Form (new)

Everton ended a run of three consecutive Premier League defeats on Sunday when Louis Saha and Jack Rodwell scored in stoppage time to help them to victory at Craven Cottage.

Royston Drenthe had scored a stunning goal to give the Blues an early lead before Brian Ruiz's well taken equaliser.

David Moyes' side are in the fourth round courtesy of home wins against Sheffield United (3-1) and West Brom (2-1).

Andre Villas-Boas suffered only his second defeat as Chelsea manager at Loftus Road on Sunday as Heidar Helguson's penalty proved the difference in the West London derby against QPR at Loftus Road.

Chelsea entered the competition at the third round stage and needed a penalty shoot-out to edge past neighbours Fulham. Sunday's goalscorer Ruiz missed the crucial spot kick for Martin Jol's side.

Classic Match (new)

EVERTON 3-3 CHELSEA (Wednesday 3 May 1995): In another midweek meeting between Everton and Chelsea back in 1995 the two sides shared six goals in a thrilling contest. Chelsea scored the game's opener when Paul Furlong appeared to tap home from an offside position, but Andy Hinchcliffe equalised with an excellent free kick. The hosts were then twice ahead through Gary Ablett and Daniel Amokachi but were pegged back on both occasions - first by David Hopkin and then by Furlong with 13 minutes to play.

Last Meeting (new)

CHELSEA 3-1 EVERTON (Saturday 15 October 2011):
Chelsea beat Everton at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League for the first time in six attempts earlier this month courtesy of goals from Daniel Sturridge, John Terry and Ramires. Vellios got Everton's consolation just 18 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
