Welcome to live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final clash between Everton and Chelsea at Goodison Park.
After Chelsea were dumped out of the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain in midweek both teams are playing for little else this season with the FA Cup their last chance at success.
Both sides have an outside chance at qualifying for the Europa League, but while Guus Hiddink is unbeaten in the Premier League since taking over, the Toffees have been in awful form since the turn of the year, though there has been some improvement in recent weeks.
- For the home side, Bryan Oviedo is doubtful and Kevin Mirallas is banned
- However, Gareth Barry and Tom Cleverley return for Roberto Martinez, although John Stones is dropped
- John Terry was assessed before kick-off, having missed the last six matches because of a hamstring injury, but is only fit enough for the bench
- Diego Costa and Eden Hazard both came off against PSG because of injury, Costa starts but Hazard does not make the squad
