Vote: Will Liverpool beat Everton in the FA Cup?

Toffees get another opportunity to use their charming banner…

Thanks to the nimble fingers of Wimbeldon legend Dave Beasant and Franchise FC advocate Roberto Di Matteo, Liverpool will face Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup on the weekend of 24/25 January. Here’s the draw in full:

Liverpool v Everton
Southampton or Manchester United v Tottenham
Hull or Newcastle v Millwall or Crewe
Sunderland v Blyth or Blackburn
Hartlepool v West Ham
Leyton Orient or Sheffield United v Charlton or Norwich
Cardiff v Arsenal
Portsmouth or Bristol City v Histon or Swansea
Chelsea or Southend v Ipswich
Cheltenham or Doncaster v Aston Villa
West Brom or Peterborough v QPR or Burnley
Torquay v Coventry
Kettering v Fulham
Watford v Leicester or Crystal Palace
Derby v Nottingham Forest
Birmingham or Wolves v Middlesbrough

Liverpool and Manchester Utd both have tough draws, Chelsea are struggling and Arsenal’s trip to Wales will be no walk in the park, so perhaps we face the prospect of another non-big four victory in the FA Cup.

Everton haven’t won at Anfield since 1999, and the bookies will almost certainly fancy the league leaders. However, the last time the two sides met in the FA Cup, the Toffees walked away the victors (February 1991 in a fifth round second replay), and it wouldn’t be completely out of the question for Senor Benitez to prioritise the Premier and Champions Leagues.

So, who will win the derby? Let us know your opinion with a vote and comment below…
