Blues Draw Swans

by Hamish Dufton @efchamishdufton

Everton's reward for their 4-0 win over Stevenage is a home draw in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Blues will face fellow Premier League side Swansea City at Goodison Park, with the fixture to be played on the weekend of the 15/16 February.

It is a tie that will take on the added significance of boss Roberto Martinez facing the club where he enjoyed many years as first a player and then manager.

Everton, of course, have already beaten the Swans this season. Stunning goals from Seamus Coleman and Ross Barkley saw the Toffees earn a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium back in December.

The last time the two sides met in the FA Cup was back at the end of January in 1954.

A brace from John Willie Parker and strike from Dave Hickson helped the Blues to a 3-0 fourth round win.
