It's an all-Premier League clash in the fifth round of the FA Cup with the Toffees hosting Spurs at Goodison Park.
🤨 Patchy form on both sides
Everton salvaged a draw at Man United with a last-gasp equalizer from Dominic Calvert-Lewin with virtually the last kick of the game at Old Trafford. Carlo Ancelotti was understandably speechless but happy to claim a point from a match where they were dominated for long periods.
Tottenham comfortably returned to winning ways over West Brom in the Premier League thanks to goals from superstar duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, ending a string of three defeats against Liverpool, Brighton and Chelsea for Mourinho's men.
Despite managing to win just one of their last four Premier League matches, Ancelotti's Everton side is firmly in the hunt for a Champions League spot and are only three points behind bitter rivals Liverpool having played two fewer matches. Inconsistency continues to plague them though.
A below-par Toffees team needed extra time to get past Rotherham in the third round, but Ancelotti's side had no such problems against Sheffield Wednesday, easing to a 3-0 win over the Championship side.
👔 Ancelotti out to banish poor FA Cup record against top sides
Everton has not beaten Spurs on home turf since the 2012-13 Premier League campaign. Added to that, The Toffees have lost their last four FA Cup matches against Premier League opposition, something that Ancelotti will be desperate to address.
🎯 Top-quality attackers on display
Calvert-Lewin's header was the difference when these sides locked horns all the way back in September and the 23-year-old Englishman now has 13 Premier League goals this season. England skipper Harry Kane also has 13 top-flight strikes to his name.
The Spurs man might only be fit enough for a cameo role from the bench but that's a great option for Mourinho to have at his disposal.
🗞 Team news
James Rodríguez came off with a tight calf at Old Trafford and may not be risked. Seamus Coleman, Yerry Mina and Alex Iwobi could all return to the starting XI but Josh King is ineligible after featuring for Bournemouth in the FA Cup this season. Gylfi Sigurðsson will be eager to make a mark against his old club.
🧮 Probable XI (4-2-3-1):
Olsen; Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Digne; Gomes, Doucouré; Iwobi, Sigurðsson, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin
Carlos Vinícius is likely to get the nod ahead of Harry Kane from the start up top. Sergio Reguilón and Giovani Lo Celso are both still out, and Serge Aurier is a major doubt. Gareth Bale and Steven Bergwijn should both get starts in wide attacking roles.
🧮 Probable XI (4-2-3-1):
Hart; Doherty, Dier, Rodon, Davies; Winks, Sissoko; Bale, Ndombele, Bergwijn; Vinícius
