FA Cup Preview: Everton - Fulham

David Moyes could make a few changes from the Everton side that disappointingly drew 1-1 with Blackburn at the weekend. Royston Drenthe is in line to return to the starting XI, while Jack Rodwell could overcome a hamstring strain in time to feature.
Ireland Under-21 international Shane Duffy is also set to deputize in central defense once again, with Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka both out injured. Leon Osman is out due to a knee problem.
Fulham is likely to retain most of the side that hammered in-form Newcastle United 5-2 at the weekend, but Moussa Dembele and Dickson Etuhu could return from respective injuries, with Steve Sidwell also facing a race to be fit.
Mark Schwarzer is still a week or two away from returning to action, while Zdenek Grygera remains the only long-term absentee for Martin Jol.

  • Everton has a 100 percent home record against Fulham in the Premier League, beating it on all 10 meetings between the clubs at Goodison.
  • The Toffees have the historical upper hand over Fulham, winning 24 of their 54 meetings. The west London side is trailing with 18.
  • David Moyes' side beat the Cottagers 3-1 away earlier in the season, in a select group of sides to have won there along with Manchester United and Tottenham
  • Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey (right) is going in search of a third hat-trick in all competitions this month.
  • The first of those three-goal hauls came against Charlton in the third-round of the FA Cup. Everton meanwhile saw off Tamworth to progress.
  • Fulham has scored the least amount of goals on the its travels in the league this season, with just seven.
  • The American has already broken his seasonal goals record for Fulham (13), with 15 goals in all competitions so this in this campaign.
