  • A thrilling finish at the Stadium of Light - thanks for following tonight's live commentary and stick around for a full match report, reaction and ratings.

  • Full-time: Sunderland 2 Chelsea 1. The Black Cats go through to the semi-finals.

  • Change for Sunderland: Bardsley ON, Giaccherini OFF.

  • Ki is booked (119) for taking his shirt off in the goal celebration.

  • Ki Sung-Yeung strikes what is surely the winner! Borini does superbly with his back to the goal after the cross comes in from the right, and feeds the ball left to to the Korean. He doesn't panic, and takes the ball on before scoring low past Schwarzer. 2-1.

  • GOAL! Sunderland 2 (Ki 118) Chelsea 1

  • Mannone plucks De Bruyne's right-wing cross out of the air and tries to get Sunderland moving again.

  • Larsson crosses from the right, Ki heads firmly towards goal but Schwarzer makes a superb save high to his left and stops the shot one-handed for a corner. Celustka stabs the resulting corner wide.

  • O'Shea does enough to get across Ba to the near post and prevent him turning home Willian's right-wing cross.

  • Schwarzer has to make two fine saves, first to deny Larsson on the free-kick and then again from Altidore as Ki puts the ball back into the danger zone.

  • Essien fouls Giaccherini just outside the box on the left and is booked (110). The Ghanaian will be banned against Arsenal on Monday.

  • After good work by Ba, De Bruyne gets away from O'Shea and tries a shot but it's wide.

  • Giaccherini releases Altidore, and Cahill tries to clear up but gives away a throw-in.

  • A dangerous Sunderland corner is cleared by Chelsea. Then De Bruyne wins a free-kick off Larsson.

  • It seems David Luiz has been for a toilet break, but we're now underway again...

  • Half-time in extra-time: Sunderland 1 Chelsea 1.

  • One added minute to be played at the end of the first period of extra-time.

  • De Bruyne with a cross-shot from the right that's taken cleanly by Mannone. Mikel's taken a knock to the head after tussling with Borini and will need treatment.

  • De Bruyne tries to work an opening, but the pressure is ended when Essien crosses relatively aimlessly from the right-hand side.

  • Terrific individual skill from Giaccherini to keep the ball outside the area, the cross comes in from the left from Dossena and Ashley Cole is underneath it - only for Borini to manage to get a shot in after all, but it's wide.
