CONFIRMED: Everton & Swansea line-ups

Here is how Everton and Swansea City will line-up for this afternoon’s match at Goodison Park:

Everton starting XI: Robles, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Barkley, Pienaar, Mirallas, Traore

Subs: Howard, Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Naismith, Stones, Osman

Swansea City starting XI: Tremmel, Richards, Bartley, Amat, Taylor, Canas, de Guzman, Hernandez, Routledge, Lamah, Vazquez

Subs: Vorm, Willliams, Tiendalli, Britton, Dyer, Bony, Lita

Given the way the FA Cup has gone so far this season, both Everton and Swansea City will know just how close they are to stepping out at Wembley.

Roberto Martinez could make it consecutive victories following his success with Wigan Athletic last year, and what a way to end his first year in charge if he can do what David Moyes failed to and bring a trophy to Goodison Park.

Lacina Traore makes his debut for the Toffees but Antolin Alcaraz is not yet match-fit following his return to training. For Swansea, both David Ngog and Marvin Emnes are cup-tied.

As Martinez prepares to welcome his former team, he will be hoping to replicate the only previous FA Cup encounter between the two sides – a 3-0 victory for the Toffees in 1954.

What do you think the result will be this afternoon?
