Chelsea crashes out of FA CUP while Manchester United & Everton into quarter finals

Everton and Manchester United went on to secure their places in the final 16 in a close battle to secure their places. In a match between Chelsea and Everton , Everton finally managed to prevail in a penalty shoot out thriller, as they went on to lead the scores 4-3 in the shoot out. Earlier they had tied on 1-1, and the goals from both sides come after the extra minutes from Lampard and Baines. The hero for the moment for Everton was Phil Neville who hit the winning spot-kick as Everton booked their place in the quarter finals.

On the other hand Crawley Town were unable to make a FA Cup shocker, and Wes Brown goal in the first half as a result of a header had done enough to let their chances ending up n last 16.   Crawley Town were unlucky not to score an equaliser as David Hunt and Matt Tubbs missed late chances . Crawley offered some boost off when Ben Smith's long-range effort dipped behind United keeper Lindegaard but fell wide. So United remained firm and went on to beat Crawley Town.

Carlos Ancelotti , Chelsea boss was pretty upset as the blues went out crashing, falling victim to the penalty shoot out said his side were "in control" of their FA Cup replay against Everton until the Toffees' late equaliser.
