Everton continued their dreadful form at Goodison Park last weekend as they fell to their 7th defeat in 15 home matches during this season's Premier League campaign with defeat to West Ham. Despite failing to win a trophy since 1995, Everton have now made the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the fifth time over the last eight seasons. However, Everton have lost five of their last seven ties at this stage of the competition, including their last two. Everton have a strong recent record against Chelsea as they've won five of their last nine meetings against the the blues at Goodison Park (D1 L3) and have scored in each of those matches. The last meeting between both sides in this competition came in 2011 with Everton progressing on penalties in the replay at Stamford Bridge. Romelu Lukaku is yet to score against Chelsea in four appearances but the Belgian has scored in all four of his FA Cup matches for Everton.
Despite going unbeaten under Hiddink in the league and FA Cup, Chelsea go into this match in poor spirits after crashing out of the Champions League in midweek and injuries to Diego Costa and Eden Hazard in the process. Chelsea's last defeat at this stage of the cup came in 2008 against lower league Barnsley but the blues have won all five of their quarterfinals in this competition since then. Chelsea have had the better of their FA Cup meetings against Everton as they've won six of the nine ties between the sides but they haven't won an FA Cup matche at Goodison Park yet (D2 L1). Guus Hiddink has won all 6 of his FA Cup matches but he will liekly be without main striker Diego Costa who has directly contributed to 17 goals (11 Scored, 6 Assisted) in his last 15 appearances for Chelsea.
