Grant Wright: Was never a bite, Barry should have been cautioned much sooner, could have prevented the whole incident.

Alawode: Thanks to Barry for not simulating, Diego would have been in trouble. Not a bite, otherwise Barry would have been up in arms

"Would you say that Everton are spectacularly, consistently inconsistent?"

Congratulations to Everton. Great to see you back at Wembley. Marvellous season for all my former clubs. Woohoo!

'I didn't see it'

Everton 2-0 Chelsea

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: "There is a lot of emotions still going on after the game, but when I tried to calm down and analyse, the team did rather well for 70 minutes and then we conceded. The energy was out and we had a few injuries. I cannot criticise our attitude but the sharpness was left around the box.

"We knew already Romelu Lukaku was making his goals, he is a good guy, a good player.

"I didn't see the Diego Costa incident. If I had have seen it I would give proper comment so it is difficult to give a comment on that.

"It was a tough game between all the players involved, they were going after him a little bit. The referee don't have to protect but must know when they are going after them.

"Everyone knows where Chelsea were. The first task was to get out of the relegation zone and we did that fast, we went from 16th to 10th. Then there were two cups at stake. it is important now that we have the pride to play when there is nothing much at stake. 

"We will be proud and play for the public."

'One of the great FA Cup goals'

Everton 2-0 Chelsea

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "It is a fantastic feeling, more than anything the atmosphere that was created. Every one of us will take it away.

"Romelu Lukaku's goal was one of the great goals we will see in the FA Cup. We played a great team in Chelsea but we looked a team that was hurting from the weekend loss to West Ham. We had the responsibility to relieve the pain and did that in the last 12 minutes. Today was the complete feeling.

Roberto Martinez

"I am the one bringing expectation and every single player at the club has the right mental character. We wanted to get to Wembley and our chairman deserves that for what he has achieved. 

"I can't comment if Diego Costa did anything. It is a game full of emotions and there were two sending-offs, the referee played a very good game."

While it doesn't excuse Costa's reaction, I'd be getting frustrated too by the persistent fouling from Barry. Wasn't punished until late on and gets away with it because he's English.

A disgrace you say, I wish there was someone who cares as much as Costa at Old Trafford.

Danny Powell-Thomas: Costa is just vile - knew exactly what he was doing, then squared up to the ref after the red! As always, fully deserved.

Yousuf Ali: This CFC team needs to look in the mirror, not convinced most want to play for the club, have given nothing this season.

Gervase Kempinski: We've paid the price for José's ego. But too many players not turned up. There must be a diamond in amongst the 30 kids on loan

'I have nothing to prove'

Everton 2-0 Chelsea

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku: "It feels great, I am just happy for the team and to do something we wanted. Now we have 90 minutes to go and we delivered a good performance after the loss against West Ham.

"I think the first goal is the best thing, I didn't know where I was going but then I was in the box. I saw Gary Cahill not know where he was going so I shifted it onto my left foot.

"It was just another goal and happy for the team. If you wan to win cups, you have to beat the big teams.

"I don't think I have anything to prove to Chelsea, I went there as an 18-year-old and learnt the trade of being a professional footballer. I will always be grateful to them.

"If we work hard and are clinical offensively and defensively, we have a chance."

Russel in Torquay: Chelsea's reputation has been irrevocably tarnished by Mourinho. Costa is an example of his win-at-all-costs, forget professionalism and honour approach, and it's exactly the reason why no one has the least bit of sympathy in seeing them fail. Don't let your reputation go the same way, United!

Stat attack

Everton 2-0 Chelsea

Everton are yet to concede a single goal in the FA Cup this season.

The Toffees have reached the FA Cup semi-final for the first time since 2011-12, where they were eliminated by Liverpool.

Guus Hiddink lost his first FA Cup match as Chelsea manager, having won all six of his games previous to this.

Kieran Kirschner: If Barry had reacted to that Costa would be in huge trouble. Didn't bite but had the intention to which is bad enough.

'Did he bite him?

Ruud Gullit

Former Chelsea manager

"It was a fantastic goal and this game needed something magical. The way he turned Gary Cahill, an experienced player, he came with power and pace. I loved it. This is the FA Cup, it is a good thing that the two teams had nothing to play for elsewhere because they went at it.

"Diego Costa’s reaction summed up what he did before. He banged into him and Gareth Barry says, ‘OK’. Did he bite him?"

The difference maker!

FOUR MINUTES added on.

Gareth Barry may have been daft to get sent off there but he did Diego Costa a favour. If he had reacted to what looked like a 'bite', then Costa could have been in big, big trouble.

I wonder if anything more will come from that. I stress that I don't think Costa did actually bite Barry - but it looked like he was considering it.

A flurry of subs to catch you up on - John Terry, Loic Remy and John Stones have all come on in the last few minutes. It's a bit nervy at Goodison, as Everton have thrown away a load of points from winning positions this season.

RED CARD - Gareth Barry

Well that is just stupid. Gareth Barry, who could have been cautioned several times before he was just a few minutes ago, is booked for a second time as he catches Cesc Fabregas.

It will finish 10v10.
