Team News (new)

Key Sunderland duo Lee Cattermole and Stephane Sessegnon are both available for the replay having completed the suspensions that ruled them out of the first tie at Goodison Park. The Black Cats remain without Wes Brown, Kieran Richardson and Titus Bramble, with John O'Shea also a doubt.

Everton boss David Moyes says that 'a few' members of his squad will undergo late fitness tests on Tuesday, while the on-loan Steven Pienaar is ineligible, having already played in earlier rounds of the competition for Tottenham.

What They Say

Sunderland's Frazier Campbell: "[The match at Goodison] was a game of two halves, really - we played well in the first and not so much in the second. We need to make sure we start well. No one is getting carried away with what might happen. We have to make sure we get things correct in the present so we can be there. Wembley is at the back of everyone's mind but at the forefront you have to just take it game by game." 

Everton manager David Moyes: "I think the pressure does go back [on them]. I certainly felt it a little bit when we played at home. We had to try and do the job and win here. It was a good result for Sunderland to get us back up to the Stadium of Light. They'll see that a good part of their job's been done. Certainly they've probably got themselves in the favourites' position now - they've been very good at home under Martin, so we know it'll be a tough game."

Last Meeting (new)

March 17, 2012. Everton 1-1 Sunderland. The Blues had to come from behind in the original quarter-final tie at Goodison. The Black Cats opened the scoring when defender Phil Bardsley struck from range on 11 minutes. Tim Cahill equalised on 22 minutes however, heading home in trademark fashion after Nikica Jelavic had flicked on Leighton Baines’ left-wing cross.

Classic Match (new)

January 27, 2010. Everton 2-0 Sunderland. The Blues made a flying start in an evening kick-off against the Mackems. Tim Cahill netted after just six minutes before on-loan American Landon Donovan fired in a second 13 minutes later. The visitors were unable to respond as the game went on, meaning the Toffees' early work sealed all three points.

Us And Them (new)

Players that have played for both clubs include goalkeeper Thomas Myrhe, current Blues reserve-team boss Alan Stubbs, Kevin Kilbane, John Oster, Gavin McCann, Don Hutchison and Paul Bracewell, who was on the losing side for both teams in FA Cup finals.
