Chelsea snatches 1-1 draw at Everton in FA Cup

Defending champion Chelsea required a late goal by substitute Salomon Kalou to rescue a 1-1 draw at Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Ivory Coast forward finished off a flowing counterattack in the 75th minute with a shot that squirmed into the far corner, earning Chelsea a replay at Stamford Bridge.
Everton was in control for long periods at Goodison Park but only had one goal to show for its dominance, with France striker Louis Saha heading home powerfully from a corner by Leighton Baines in the 62nd.
Chelsea came close to snatching a win when Brazil midfielder Ramires hit the post in the 86th.
Unbeaten Premier League leader Manchester United visits third-tier side Southampton later Saturday.
