Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Everton welcome Boreham Wood to their Goodison Park in the FA Cup last 16. The Toffees were on the verge of holding Man City to a goalless draw at the weekend, but Phil Foden eventually scored a late winner for the Citizens. Frank Lampard’s men aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and we are positive they will go all guns blazing at the lower-league side.
Both Dele Alli and Demarai Gray are pushing for a start, while all Delph, Mina, Godfrey, and Davies should miss out with injuries. Boreham Wood, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Everton by shocking Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Thursday’s clash. David faces Goliath at Goodison Park, meaning that anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
