Although they are yet to win a match following the departure of now Manchester United boss David Moyes - Everton are also yet to lose a Premier League game. The Toffees drew their opening game of the season 2-2 away to Norwich. Many fans would be happy with the result but were expecting a win in their home game against West Brom at the weekend. Unfortunately the match ended 0-0 and the Toffees faithful will hope they can get their first win of the season in this tie.

Stevenage caused an upset in the first round of the cup beating Championship side Ipswich 2-0 at home.
