Betting prediction: Everton 3 – 0 Sheffield Wednesday
Neither Everton nor Sheffield Wednesday have taken the pitch in anger in two-weeks time. But despite the mini-holiday both sides have had, there is a considerable gap in class by comparison.
Wednesday are currently in the relegation zone in the Championship, and finding joy in the final-third has been a gigantic headache for manager Neil Thompson. Though their recent form see’s them undefeated in their last four outings, it’s hard to see them getting past Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton, even without Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Given their own 12-day gap since their 2-1 away win at Wolverhampton, a strong match day XI is to be expected. It could be a tough day on Merseyside for The Owls.
Everton vs Sheffield Wednesday: Recommended bets
– Alex Iwobi to score anytime
With James Rodriguez just coming back into match day contention, Alex Iwobi should be in-line for a run-out in the match day XI and an opportunity to find some consistency to justify the investment made in him. The absence of Calvert-Lewin could aid in the former Arsenal winger finding more chances to make his mark on proceedings.
– Winning margin of 3: Everton
There is little evidence to suggest that Everton will struggle to secure passage into the fifth-round of the FA Cup. The Toffees should – in theory – be comfortable on the day, and have enough firepower to find a fair-few goals in the process.

Everton vs Sheffield Wednesday: Match preview
Sunday’s FA Cup-tie featuring Everton and Sheffield Wednesday is very much a tale of two cities. The blue-half of Liverpool now features an Everton-side under the stewardship of managerial legend in Carlo Ancelotti. After an adaptation period – and some spending – the Italian folk hero has guided the Toffees within two points of the final Champions League birth in the Premier League, with matches to spare.
Brilliant displays put on by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and the bolstering of Everton’s depth of quality by adding the likes of James Rodriguez, Allan, Ben Godfrey, and Abdoulaye Doucoure have gone a long way to propel the blue half of Merseyside well and truly in the European discussion this term.
A serial winner on the touchline, Ancelotti has won no less than twenty pieces of silverware over the course of his brilliant career, and Sunday’s cup-tie signals a perfect chance to orchestrate a hopeful deep run in England’s premier cup competition.
Sheffield Wednesday must avoid further fall from grace
No longer the premier club in the Steel City, Sheffield Wednesday are a long way away from the days of David Hirst, Mark Bright, Andy Booth, and Paolo Di Canio bagging goals in England’s top-flight. Wednesday are now in their 21st season removed from Premier League contention and a long way away from digging themselves out of the bottom half of the Championship.
At current, The Owls have picked-up ten points from a possible twelve in recent fixtures, but despite the uptick in form they sit 23rd in the table. There is little joy at the minute, which makes for an even more interesting FA Cup platform with which to target Everton on their travels.
Wednesday have the joint-worst attack in the Championship, and for that fact alone it’s difficult to see another historic FA Cup shock on the cards.
Everton team news vs Sheffield Wednesday
With Leicester City on the horizon, there is little to suggest that Ancelotti will be prepared to risk either Calvert-Lewin or Allan unless his hand is forced. Both are expected to be rested.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin is recovering from his Achilles tendon rupture, but could make his return if he passes fit.
James Rodriguez could be given a run-out to receive minutes in the wake of his absence, while Abdoulaye Doucoure should be in-line to start considering he’s suspended for Leicester’s visit in midweek.
Sheffield Wednesday team news vs Everton
Neil Thompson has to sweat it out over six first-team players in the run-up to Sunday’s clash. Jack Marriot, Joost van Aken, Dominic Iorfa, Julian Börner, Josh Windass, and Massimo Luongo are all uncertainties for selection.
Adam Reach is expected to be fit and ready for service after he’s completed his return from injury earlier this month.
