Everton's players look on in horror as Yakubu hits the post
Everton fought back brilliantly before losing a dramatic shoot-out
Everton and Spurs went out of the Uefa Cup after losing penalty shoot-outs.

2250: What a night. Drama, drama, drama. I feel drained. Bolton are now England's last surviving representative in the Uefa Cup, while Rangers have a great chance of progress. Both of those second legs tomorrow. Until then, a calming cup of chamomile tea all round. Or something stronger...

2237: In the Uefa Cup, Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta is our Player of the Day on 7.93, just ahead of Spurs goalscorer Dimitar Berbatov. In the Premier League, it's all about four-goal Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard on 8.67. Still time to vote though - if you have the energy after all that nerve-shredding drama.

2234: "Never fancied Chimbonda with that penalty. Only ones that looked calm were Bent, who hit his wonderfully, and Berbatov who is ridiculously cool. Such a shame both English teams won tonight and lost on penalties! Both were poor in the first leg though, and that's what has lost them the games. Bolton will really really struggle tommorow night. It's OK though lads, take a look at the CL."

2230: Heartbreak for the English sides. Phil Jagielka sees his penalty saved after Yakubu hit the post as Fiorentina win the shoot-out 4-2. Jermaine Jenas has a chance to win it for Tottenham but his effort is saved by Gomes before Pascal Chimbonda puts his spot-kick wide to give PSV a 6-5 win on penalties.

2216: OK I'm going to try to keep you across both shoot-outs with the help of my lovely assistant Dan Warren. The Everton shoot-out will appear first, with the Tottenham shoot-out underneath. But please bear with us.

2214: FULL-TIME Everton 2-0 Fiorentina (agg 2-2)
And penalties at Goodison Park too.

2213: FULL-TIME PSV 0-1 Tottenham (agg 1-1)
Penalties is it. What a save that was. Did I tell you already?

2213: Oh my word. Steed Malbranque's volley looks to be heading to the top corner but Gomes somehow claws it away. How did he do that? Incredible.

2212: A worrying moment for Everton as Giampaolo Pazzini spins a shot inches wide.

2210: "Everton deserve to be gutted if they go out on pens."
SouthernBoltonian on 606

2208: Less than five minutes of extra time remaining in both games.

2205: PSV win a free-kick wide on the right as Didier Zokora takes out Danko Lazovic with a sliding challenge. The set-piece comes back to Balazs Dzsudzsak but his shot is blocked.

2203: Everton sub Victor Anichebe finds Andy Johnson in space on the right. His cross is met by the defender who pushes it straight at his own keeper. Fiorentina survive.

2159: And we're up and away again with only 15 minutes remaining until possible penalties. I have no idea how I will keep you up to date with simultaneous shoot-outs. Answers on a postcard.

2157: And they're swapping ends at the Philips Stadium too.

2156: It's half-time in extra time at Goodison Park. We're heading for pens...

2154: Yakubu continues to terrorise the Fiorentina defence, twisting and turning before shooting over.

2151: FULL-TIME Chelsea 6-1 Derby
A walk in th park. Frank Lampard scores four to take his Chelsea tally to 17 for the season.

2143: Edison Mendez is a fortunate to get away with a terrible late challenge on Pascal Chimbonda - not spotted by the ref. Moments later, Darren Bent's well-struck volley flies past the post.

2141: Extra time is under way in the two Uefa Cup games...

2139: FULL-TIME Portsmouth 4-2 Birmingham
Portsmouth go seventh after a thriller at Fratton Park.

2138: FULL-TIME Aston Villa 1-1 Middlesbrough
A highly contentious penalty earns Aston Villa a point

2137: GOAL Portsmouth 4-2 Birmingham
Pedro Mendes' cross from the right is met by a flying header from Kanu to put the seal on their win.

2137: FULL-TIME Everton 2-0 Fiorentina (agg 2-2)
A brilliant fightback from Everton takes this into extra time although they may feel they should have won it in normal time.

2136: FULL-TIME PSV 0-1 Tottenham (agg 1-1)
Extra time it is after Dimitar Berbatov's late equaliser.

2136: Chelsea are really rubbing it in now. Didier Drogba and Andriy Shevechenko are on.

2134: Into injury time in the Uefa Cup games and Yakubu flashes a header just wide for Everton.

2132: GOAL Chelsea 6-1 Derby
But wait, the comeback's on. Michael Essien, who has only just come on, deflects Kenny Miller's pass into the path of David Jones who slots home left-footed. That's Derby's sixth away goal of the season - one of the other five came at Old Trafford.

2131: GOAL Chelsea 6-0 Derby
Even Frank Lampard looks a bit embarrassed about that one. The midfielder spins away from two defenders before shooting low into the corner.

2130: Darren Bent's looping header looks like it might drop in but Heurelho Gomes gets fingertips to it. What a night in the Uefa Cup. And the Prem for that matter.

2129: "Re 2123: That was very generous to call it an offside 'attempt'. An attempt suggests some presence of organisation."
Martyn, Sheffield, via text on 81111

2127: "Even I'd look good against Derby. Well, maybe not, but you get my point."
D Kuyt, Liverpool, via text on 81111

2124: GOAL Chelsea 5-0 Derby
Embarrassing now. Frank Lampard completes a fairly standard hat-trick, firing in from 25 yards after the Derby defence backed off, Roy Carroll only able to help the ball into the net. Men against boys.

2124: GOAL PSV 0-1 Tottenham (agg 1-1)
With 10 minutes remaining, Pascal Chimbonda crosses from the right and Dimitar Berbatov sends a stunning volley into the corner. A fabulous strike from the Bulgarian. We're going into extra time as it stands.

2123: GOAL Chelsea 4-0 Derby
Derby make a pathetic attempt at an offside trap, allowing Nicolas Anelka in. His shot is saved but Joe Cole buries the follow-up.

2121: "Lampard has had an amazing game... We look so lost in midfield without him, as seen at Barnsley."
JT_BlueForever on 606

2120: Everton keeper Tim Howard pulls off a brilliant save to tip Giampaolo Pazzini's header over the bar. It's a thriller at Goodison Park.

2117: GOAL Aston Villa 1-1 Middlesbrough A very harsh decision as a shot hits Luke Young on the elbow when the defender was looking the other way. Gareth Barry buries the spot-kick to give Villa a rather undeserved equaliser.

2116: Penalty to Aston Villa.

2116: GOAL Chelsea 3-0 Derby
Nicolas Anelka plays in Joe Cole, who gets to the byeline and crosses for Frank Lampard to tap in his second of the night. Easy.

2114: Darren Bent pounces on an error and drives into the penalty area, crossing for Robbie Keane but it's just too far ahead of the striker. Fiorentina keeper Sebastien Frey makes a double save to keep the score lebvel at Goodison Park - both from Yakubu. Everton very much in the ascendancy.

2112: To those of you wondering what's happening at Villa Park. The answer is diddly squat.

2109: GOAL Everton 2-0 Fiorentina (agg 2-2)
Hello... hello! Mikel Arteta sends a piledriver into the corner from 25 yards. Goodison Park erupts. Extra time as it stands.

2108: PSV keeper Heurelho Gomes comes to punch and accidentally flattens Robbie Keane as well. Gomes immediately asks Keane if he's OK. And he is.

2105: So Steed Malbranque is at left-back for Spurs with Didier Zokora and Jonathan Woodgate in the centre of defence, Pascal Chimbonda on the right. The game at Stamford Bridge kicks off in the second half.

2104: Aaron Lennon is on for, wait for it, Ledley King. A bold substitution. Particularly as Jermaine Jenas appears to be struggling with an injury.

2059: Another scare for Birmingham. Liam Ridgewell flicks out a foot and brings Milan Baros crashing to the ground - but referee Steve Tanner waves away the penalty appeal. Looked like one of those stonewallers.

2057: Jermain Defoe should complete his hat-trick but smashes the ball wide with only Maik Taylor to beat.

2056: What a let-off for Spurs. Danny Koevermans beats Spurs' poor attempt at an offside trap from the free-kick but stabs the ball straight to Paul Robinson from only a few yards out. Unbelievable miss.

2054: GOAL Portsmouth 3-2 Birmingham
Sulley Muntari floats in the free-kick and Birmingham keeper Maik Taylor opts against coming to collect, leaving Hermann Hreidarsson to finish from close range.

2051: Back under way at the Parks of Villa and Fratton. Villa boss Martin O'Neill makes a double change. Marlon Harewood and Olof Mellberg replace Shaun Maloney and Craig Gardner.

2051: Robbie Keane squares the ball for Darren Bent, but his shot is well held by PSV keeper Heurelho Gomes.

2049: The two Uefa Cup games are away again. Darren Bent is on for Tottenham, replacing Lee Young-Pyo. Spurs three at the back now.

2047: HALF-TIME Chelsea 2-0 Derby
Chelsea on cruise control already as they close in on 77 home games unbeaten.

2044: Almost 3-0 but Roy Carroll makes up for that mistake a moment ago by saving Salomon Kalou's stinging effort.

2042: GOAL Chelsea 2-0 Derby
Frank Lampard slides the ball through for Nicolas Anelka and though Derby keeper Roy Carroll gets there first, he can only push the ball to Salomon Kalou who strokes into the empty net.

Robbie Keane is top of the pops for Spurs on 7.70, with Young-Pyo Lee bringing up the rear on a miserable 4.60. For Everton, Mikel Arteta leads the way on 7.56.

2039: "Re 2030: Chelsea are coming back into it - seems they've had 44% possession now."
blueJ2 on 606

2034: HALF-TIME Portsmouth 2-2 Birmingham
A thriller at Fratton Park. Jermain Defoe's brace gives Pompey an early lead but Birmingham fight back through Fabrice Muamba and Sebastian Larsson.

2033: HALF-TIME Aston Villa 0-1 Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough deserve their lead against an out-of-sorts Villa.

2033: HALF-TIME PSV 0-0 Tottenham (agg 1-0)
Bit boring to be honest.

2032: HALF-TIME Everton 1-0 Fiorentina (agg 1-2)
Andy Johnson's scrappy finish gives Everton hope for the second half.

2030: The more observant among you will have noticed something funny is going on with our stats for the Chelsea-Derby game. I can confirm that Derby have not had 88% of the possession at Stamford Bridge.

2029: Boro striker Mido clears off the line from John Carew after a goalmouth scramble at Villa Park.

2028: GOAL Chelsea 1-0 Derby
Debrby substitute Dean Leacock trips Frank Lampard and the midfielder picks himself up to slot home the spot-kick - his 14 goal of the season.

2027: Penalty to Chelsea.

2025: GOAL Portsmouth 2-2 Birmingham
Sebastian Larsson curls home a stunning free-kick from 20 yards. Portsmouth's wall fell apart a bit but it was a great strike.

2024: A good chance for Boro now as Mohamed Shawky shoots narrowly wide from 25 yards.

2022: Spurs win a corner after PSV keeper Heurelho Gomes clashes with his own defender as he tries to catch a long ball. From it, Ledley King gets ahead of the defender but his header drifts past the far post. Meanwhile, Everton striker Andy Johnson heads over from a Mikel Arteta corner - should have done better.

2021: Now Everton go close as Yakubu turns the defender and shoots low - but Sebastien Frey saves well to his left. Michael Ballack has the ball in the net for Chelsea but he's offside.

2018: A worrying moment for Everton as Manuel Pasqual skips down the left and crosses for Martin Jorgensen but his volley goes straight into Tim Howard's arms.

2017: Derby's veteran defender Alan Stubbs picks up an injury and is replaced Dean Leacock.

2015: Boro midfielder Mohamed Shawkey is booked for a lunge on Wilfred Bouma. He had been warned, but he obviously didn't listen did he?

2009: GOAL Aston Villa 0-1 Middlesbrough
Zat Knight gives the ball away to Stewart Downing who skips away from Craig Gardner and then sidesteps Knight before finishing at the near post. The winger's seventh goal of the season.

2008: "Spurs getting plenty of posession and just had first shot at goal, PSV looking very comfortable, hardly out of first gear."
mrTHFC on 606

2004: Frank Lampard hits the post with a left-foot shot from eight yards, with the Derby defence sleeping. Meanwhile at PSV, Steed Malbranque flashes a shot wide for Spurs when he should have done better.

2001: GOAL Everton 1-0 Fiorentina (agg 1-2)
Fiorentina keeper Sebastien Frey allows Steven Pienaar's cross to slip through his fingers and the ball bounces off Andy Johnson's chest and in. Hope for Everton.

2001: As Birmingham striker Mauro Zarate is booked for diving in the penalty area, the game at Stamford Bridge gets under way.

1956: Villa keeper Scott Carson makes a superb point-blank save from Boro striker Tuncay and Mido puts the follow-up narrowly wide.

1956: GOAL Portsmouth 2-1 Birmingham
Three goals in the first nine minutes. What's going on? Liam Ridgewell flicks on a corner and Fabrice Muamba times his run to perfection to stab home. Birmingham back in it.

1954: GOAL Portsmouth 2-0 Birmingham
Maik Taylor pushes Sulley Muntari's long-range effort straight to Milan Baros. Taylor gets a hand to Baros's shot but Jermain Defoe is on hand to tap in his second in two minutes. Nightmare start for Birmingham.

1952: GOAL Portsmouth 1-0 Birmingham
Liam Ridgewell's attempted clearance goes straight up in the air, Milan Baros picks it up and his cross comes off David Murphy's hand. Jermain Defoe slots in the penalty.

1951: Penalty to Portsmouth.

1951: Tottenham have an early chance to threaten as Jermaine Jenas floats over a free-kick but Dimitar Berbatov can't quite there ahead of the PSV defender.

1947: We're up and running everywhere except Stamford Bridge - which kicks off at 2000 GMT.

1944: Not the sort of stats that Everton fans will want to read but anyway here goes... Everton haven't scored against an Italian team in Uefa club competition for 450 minutes. Fiorentina have not lost a Uefa Cup away game this season.

1943: "I went for an audition for the Weakest Link today. After accidentally swearing, I reckon I'm as likely to get on as Tottenham or Everton are to get through."

1940: "Re: 1925. I'm a Fulham fan, we got a point at Stamford Bridge, so nothing's impossible."

1938: TEAM NEWS PSV v Tottenham
PSV are unchanged from the first leg. Tottenham head coach Juande Ramos springs a surprise recalling left-back Young-Pyo Lee, who starts for the first time since the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United in January. Lee should feel at home in Eindhoven - he joined Spurs from PSV. Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate are paired in central defence, while midfielder Jermaine Jenas is back after a twisted ankle.

1937: "Cahill won't be missed as much as Arteta undoubtedly was, Yak and AJ to score to take it to extra time where Arteta will win it for us."
Ste via text on 81111

1932: TEAM NEWS Portsmouth v Birmingham
Portsmouth welcome back Jermain Defoe into their side while Milan Baros and Pedro Mendes also start for Pompey, but Richard Hughes has failed a fitness test and Lassana Diarra is on the bench. James McFadden in on the bench for Birmingham as Mauro Zarate makes his first start while Martin Taylor is suspended and Olivier Kapo is still injured.

1925: "Re: 1855. I'm a Derby fan and I've done the maths, Chelsea will still be eight points behind after tonight. Well, I can dream can't I?"
Anon via text on 81111

1923: TEAM NEWS Chelsea v Derby
Chelsea make five changes after their FA Cup humiliation at Barnsley, with Paulo Ferreira, Ashley Cole, Claude Makelele, Frank Lampard and Salomon Kalou recalled - but Didier Drogba is still on the bench. Rock-bottom Derby bring back out-of-form captain Robbie Savage and fellow midfielder Hossam Ghaly in place of David Jones and Emmanuel Villa.

1920: TEAM NEWS Aston Villa v Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough make three changes from the side beaten by Cardiff in the FA Cup. Mido, George Boateng and Mohamed Shawky came into the side at the expense of Afonso Alves, Fabio Rochemback and Julio Arca. Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies will be out until October with a ruptured Achilles so Zat Knight comes in.

1918: "The problem is that the top four English clubs are sooooooooo much better than the next four - so can't see English clubs in Uefa getting any further tonight - but a surprise would be nice."

1912: "Everton need to put on a master class in front on their home fans to overcome this two-goal deficit. We can do it, even without Cahill. Yakubu to fire us to Uefa Cup glory - COYB!"

Everton are without Tim Cahill, who has failed to recover from a foot injury sustained at Sunderland, but Lee Carsley is back after a domestic suspension and Leon Osman is recalled. Tony Hibbert drops down to the bench and Phil Neville moves to right-back. Fiorentina are unchanged from the first leg, with Christian Vieri again up front.

1901: "I have a feeling the Tottenham game will be a cracker."
ZZTop on 606

1855: Let's not forget the small matter of three Premier League games tonight. Chelsea have two games in hand over Arsenal. Win them both, and they'll be two points behind the leaders. One of those games is tonight against Derby. You do the math(s).

1852: "Re 1845: They CAN do it, but they won't."
kafkafil on 606

1851: If today's early Uefa Cup game is anything to go by, we are in for some fun and games this evening. Hamburg beat fellow Germans Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 but went out on away goals.

1845: Hello. Four English clubs are safely into the Champions League quarter-finals - but the Uefa Cup is proving an altogether trickier customer. Tottenham and Everton must overcome first-leg deficits if they are to reach the last eight. Can they do it? Can they?
