FA Cup 5TH Round
Everton 0 - 1Reading
7:30 Kick Off



Team News:

Everton:
Marouane Fellaini (ankle), Tim Cahill (foot) and Jermaine Beckford (groin) will be assessed before Everton finalise their team to face Reading.
Louis Saha, who had a slight hamstring injury, escaped unhurt after crashing his Ferrari into a fence on Sunday.


Reading:
Reading will monitor Shaun Cummings after he was injured at Crystal Palace.
Goalkeeper Adam Federici is out with a knee injury, captain Ivar Ingimarsson is doubtful with a groin problem and Alex Pearce (thigh) remains sidelined.


Head To Head:
This is only the eighth competitive meeting of these clubs. Reading have won one of the previous seven, and have never won at Goodison Park.

Their most recent meetings were in the Premier League between 2006 and 2008, when the Toffees won two, drew one and lost one. That defeat was 1-0 at the Madejski on 18 August 2007.

FA Cup records and best performances
They have been met in the FA Cup.
Their only cup clash came in the League Cup in October 1973, when the Merseysiders prevailed 1-0 at home in a second round tie.

Everton Current Form:
Current form
Looking for back-to-back victories, and their third in five outings (all competitions).
They have won their last two at Goodison Park, and are undefeated in six at home, having won three and drawn three since West Brom's 4-1 Premier League triumph on 27 November.


Reading Current Form:
Shared six goals with Crystal Palace in their last outing, at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Undefeated in four; having won one and drawn three Championship matches.
Shane Long has scored in each of four of the last five games, while Noel Hunt is looking to net in his fourth consecutive game.

Possible Line Ups:

Everton:


Howard
Neville - Jagielka - Distin - Baines
Coleman - Arteta - Fellaini - Osman
Beckford - Saha.


Reading:

McCarthy
Cummings - Khizanishvili - Mills - Harte
Kebe - Tabb - Leighertwood - McAnuff
Long - Hunt


--
Prediction: 3-1 Everton.

From BBC

Reading goal: They'll be even happier now. Ian Harte whips over a corner and after Matthew Mills' header is blocked by Leon Osman, the ball falls back to the defender, who takes a touch and slams a volley through a crowd of players and past Tim Howard.

1957: GOAL Everton 0-1 Reading (Mills)

Dont know what is goin on wid us this season but i think we need an investor or i can see us goin down in a few years, sunderland and birmingham have attracted better players than us and can buy them. how much do we spend 250k on a player that sits in the reserves

I've had reservations about this game tbh. Reading are not a bad side and have a good manager. Thats why I never ever dismiss clubs outside the premiership
