Everton vs Sunderland FA Cup QF Match Preview (17/03/2012)

So it’s Sunderland in the FA Cup and it couldn’t come quick enough. After many defeats it’s easy to say that you knew as soon as you saw the team sheet it looked doomed, but on Tuesday night that certainly seemed the case.

Make no bones about it we weren’t at the races and Liverpool deserved their win but maybe we will see them again before the seasons out!

To turn it on its head the importance of this Saturdays game is massive and the prospect of a return to Wembley for a semi final will certainly make up for the midweek defeat across the park. Personally I don’t believe the semi finals should be played at Wembley but at least it means more of us may get a ticket, lets hope if we can get past Sunderland then were not just going to make up the numbers.

The Everton team you would expect will have a much more familiar look to it on Saturday and it will be surprising if a few of them players such as Heitinga, Cahill, and maybe even Jelavic don’t return.

Moyes could go back to a similar formation that fans are used to now and you would have to question the effectiveness of the Stracqualursi and Anichebe strike force from midweek.

Everton’s record at home to Sunderland is a good one but with O’Neil at the helm now its going to be a tough slog and not the free ticket some fans may be expecting. The prospect of a replay up at the Stadium of Light is too much for one week and hopefully we can all relax come Sunday and start looking into how we’ll all be getting down to Wembley for the semis!

Our Result Prediction: Everton 2-0 Sunderland

The Actual  Result Was: Everton 1-1 Sunderland
