Everton and Chelsea go head to head at Goodison Park, in the FA Cup this weekend.

After a disappointing loss against West Ham, Martinez has urged his players to bounce back with a statement win against the Premier League champions.

Meanwhile, Chelsea crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. The Blues are out of the competition after losing 4-2 on aggregate.

EPL Table

The FA Cup is the only chance of winning a trophy for both teams and after a disappointing Premier League campaign, both sides will look to end their season on a high by winning a trophy.

Hiddink has won the FA Cup with Chelsea before and will look to replicate the feat once again before leaving the club at the end of the season.

Everton have done really well against Chelsea in their last two meetings and will be confident heading into this game. The Toffees have beaten Chelsea at Goodison Park earlier this season and Hiddink’s men will be looking to avenge that by dumping Everton out of the competition.
