Everton vs. Swansea City: Preview and TV schedule

Paul Thomas

There's another all-top flight clash in the FA Cup on Sunday, as Everton host Swansea.

Everton host Swansea City in the FA Cup on Sunday, with both sides scrapping over a place in the quarterfinal. It's the hosts who head in as favourites in the midst of an impressive Premier League season, but Roberto Martínez's side have hit some dodgy form recently and head in with star striker Romelu Lukaku out injured.

Swansea have started life under Garry Monk solidly, with the defender-turned-manager having overseen an impressive victory over Cardiff City in the Welsh derby before a 1-1 draw against Stoke City. However they've not beaten Everton since their return to the Premier League a couple of seasons ago, and they certainly head in as underdogs.

Everton will likely had Lacina Traoré his debut with Lukaku out injured, sidelined alongside Antolín Alcaraz, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo. Swansea's summer arrivals David N'Gog and Marvin Emnes are both cup-tied, while Michu will have to recover from an ankle problem in time to play.
