Everton vs Sheffield Wednesday: Predictions
The Toffees haven’t lifted a piece of silverware since the 1995 FA Cup — the longest trophy drought in their history by far. However, Carlo Ancelotti looks to be building the strongest Everton side in over a decade and fans are now living in genuine hope of getting back among major honours.
Everton have won six of their last eight games across all competitions, with their only defeats coming against West Ham in the Premier League and Manchester United in the EFL Cup quarter-final. Ancelotti’s one worry will be that those defeats both came at Goodison Park.
Sheffield Wednesday head to Merseyside on a five-game unbeaten run, winning four and drawing once, including a 2-0 win over Exeter in the previous round of this competition.
That represents a huge turnaround in form for the Owls, who had won just one of their last 14 games prior to this current run, losing nine and drawing the other four.
