    • 19.55 Match odds: Everton 11/10, Draw 23/10, Fulham 13/5.
    • 19.50 Everton have been knocked out of the FA Cup at Goodison Park in four of the last five seasons; in the other campaign, they were beaten finalists. The Whites have won just one of 14 FA Cup matches away from home against top flight opponents when they themselves have been in the highest tier of English football.
    • 19.45 Ominously for Everton, Fulham have drawn the Toffees four times in the FA Cup and knocked them out on each occasion, three times after a replay.
    • 19.40 Everton have won the last 18 straight home league games against Fulham, but in four FA Cup matches at home they have drawn twice and lost twice to the Cottagers.
    • 19.35 Martin Jol: "I feel that although Everton miss quite a few players they have had decent results in different ways. Of course if you play Everton it is always a difficult game because they always play to win. They have got a system with offensive midfield players. They play with a lot of crosses with English ingredients so we are well prepared. I hope we can push on in the FA Cup. It would be fantastic because we are out of the Europa League and Carling Cup. It would be nice to progress."
    • 19.30 David Moyes: "The only negativity there is is because of how the team play. We have not played well enough. It is nothing to do with the board of directors or the chairman, it is to do with me and the team. We have got to do better on the pitch. If the team plays better it lifts the mood and people change. We need to perform better and win more often. If we do that it will change everything. Winning football games is always the answer so I will take responsibility for that."

    • 19.20 Everton news: Defender Tony Hibbert (groin) is fit. Manager David Moyes will consider whether to recall the long-serving full-back and reshuffle his backline or stick with Shane Duffy in the continued absence of Sylvain Distin (hamstring) and Phil Jagielka (knee). Diniyar Bilyaletdinov drops out from the last squad with a move to Spartak Moscow imminent while Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leon Osman (knee) and Jack Rodwell (hamstring) are still missing.
