Everton v Man Utd team news

Everton: Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin remain long-term absentees, while Allan is also out – and could be a big miss for Everton.

Andre Gomes has a hamstring issue that could sideline him for this one, though James Rodriguez is steadily returning to contention after missing a handful of games.

Man Utd: Two-goal hero Scott McTominay stole the show against Leeds after just three minutes, but his efforts were rewarded with a groin problem. He isn't likely to be risked here.

Luke Shaw played 60 minutes against Leeds while feeling ill and is not expected to start in this one. Dean Henderson should start here as he has done in previous rounds of the cup.

Our prediction: Everton v Man Utd

The lack of Allan could be a huge blow for Everton who don't boast the most reliable squad beyond the starting XI.

They're a transfer window or two away from a truly deep, strong squad, but for now, Ancelotti must make do.

Both sides – and their managers – will be desperate to record silverware so you can expect near full-strength XIs. There may not be a lot between the two, though United have had plenty of spot-kick practice in 2020.

Our prediction: Everton 2-2 Man Utd (Man Utd to win on penalties)
