Chelsea and Everton do battle later this evening with a place in the last four of the FA cup up for grabs.
Both sides are sitting mid-table in the Premier League with the cup representing their final chance to add some silverware this season.
Gus Hiddink’s side were knocked out of the Champions League midweek as they lost 2-1 at home to PSG, to exit the tournament 4-2 on aggregate. The loss was even more difficult for Blues fans following the withdrawal of in-form forward, Diego Costa with a tendon injury.
The Spanish star is set to miss out this weekend meaning that Alexandre Pato could get a run-out although Bertrand Traore is also pushing hard with Loic Remy set to once again miss out.
Eden Hazard, slated on social media for swapping shirts at half-time with Angel di Maria, is struggling with a hip-injury and could also miss out while John Terry is facing a race to prove his fitness.
Long term absentee Kurt Zouma is definitely absent while Oscar and Nemanja Matic would both start.
Everton meanwhile should have Gareth Barry and Aaron Lennon available after illness and hamstring problems while Tony Hibbert, who continues to recover from a knee injury is out.
Tom Cleverley is recovering from illness and could miss out.
Clashes between these two have been surprisingly high scoring affairs in recent times with an average of 5 goals a game in the last four meetings. The two sides drew 3-3 when they met at Stamford Bridge in January with Terry scoring a late, late equaliser.
Everton won 3-1 when they met at Goodison Park in September and have won three of the last five meetings on their own patch.
The two sides last met in the FA cup in 2011 with the tie finishing 1-1 at Goodison. The replay also ended 1-1 with the Toffee winning on penalties.
It looks like a great opportunity for Roberto Martinez and his side this evening as Chelsea could be without Diego Costa and Eden Hazard who are both struggling with knocks picked up in the week.
The pressure is really on the home side to push for honours this season and this looks a test for them, but at 9/5 Everton simply have to be backed to progress to the next round.
Hiddink and his Chelsea side suffered their third consecutive defeat midweek against PSG and the stage looks set for Everton to take advantage and realise their ambitions.
Romelu Lukaku is now proving himself to be world class striker and despite a 2-3 reversal against West Ham last week, the Toffees should take advantage of a defence missing the leadership of John Terry.
