Also, David Moyes is still searching for his first trophy with the club and they might not have a better chance than in this year’s FA Cup with three Championship teams in the quarter-finals.
The Toffees look as though they are going to struggle to break into the top four of the top flight this campaign and after waiting so long for a trophy, many fans might see success in this compeition as the priority for the club.
As they are on home soil, it is no surprise that Moyes’ men are the favourites to win this one and you can back them at 4/11 with most bookmakers.
Leighton Baines is sure to be one of the main men for the hosts and he is of course going up against his former employers here.
With two goals in the FA Cup already and one against Wigan in the Premier League earlier in the season, the left-back should be confident he can hit the back of the net this weekend and is cracking value at to score anytime at 5/1. With how good the Englishman is from set-pieces, he is always in with a chance of scoring.
Moyes will call upon the Everton fans to make an electric atmosphere on Saturday and he will hope that his attacking players – such as Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar – can make this a tough afternoon for Wigan’s shaky defence.
The Latics come here on the back of a 4-0 home defeat to Everton’s Merseyside rivals Liverpool, so they simply have to raise their game this time out.
In truth, Roberto Martinez’s men have been a better side away from home in the cup competitions this season as they haven’t won inside 90 minutes at the DW Stadium in the FA or Capital One Cup.
This is the first time that Wigan are taking on a Premier League side in this tournament as well, so they need to be at their best for the entire 90 minutes. The away team are out at 7/1 to win at Goodison on Saturday.
There is no doubt that Martinez’s side can win this one, but the problem with the Latics this season is you just don’t know what sort of performance they are going to put in. Their last two matches have been a 3-0 win on the road and a 4-0 defeat on home soil, so the result here will depend on what Wigan side turn up.
One thing is for sure, at this stage of the FA Cup, the pressure is on both sides to perform and that should make for a very entertaining 90 minutes of action from 12.45PM on Saturday afternoon.
