Hull – Home form key to potential third round upset?

Perched four points above the Championship relegation zone, the FA Cup may not fall that high on manager Grant McCann’s list of priorities. His squad has been hit hard by Coronavirus related absences of late, leading to games with Blackburn and Sheffield United recently being postponed. They would eventually return to competitive action last Saturday, though, when beaten 1-0 away from home by Blackpool.

That marked a second successive loss for the Tigers, who were previously unbeaten in six (W4 D2). However, they haven’t been beaten in front of their fans, at the MKM Stadium, since the end of October, scoring exactly twice in wins over Birmingham and Millwall along with their thrilling draw last time out there against Bristol City. The hosts were only denied a third straight home win that day in stoppage time.

Key Stat: Across their opening eight home league games of this season, Hull scored more than one goal on only one occasion. Yet they have now scored exactly twice in each of the last three at MKM Stadium.


Draw & Both Teams to Score



Everton – Toffees in no position to take FA Cup lightly?

Rafael Benitez is a manager teetering over the edge. Five points collected from the last 33 available has left his Everton side 15th in the Premier League, albeit still eight points better off than the sides in the bottom three, and at the front of the Next Manager to Leave Post betting. An early exit from the FA Cup, to lower tier opposition no less, could spell disaster therefore for the Spaniard.

The Toffees approach this fixture low on confidence though. The recent 3-2 defeat to Brighton means it is one win in eleven league games. Away from home, it is no win in eight competitive matches (D3 L5) – including bowing out to another team from this level, QPR, in the last eight of the EFL Cup – since producing what was then a very accomplished performance in a 2-0 scoreline at Brighton in late August.

Key Stat: Scoring goals away from Goodison Park continues to be a problem for this Everton side. Their previous six away matches in the Premier League seen them net a paltry four times, while they last netted more than once on their travels in the 2-2 draw with QPR in the EFL Cup.

Hull Vs Everton Betting Advice

Pressure is intensifying on the Everton boss, to the extent that he surely cannot afford to rotate as he may have hoped ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup visit to Hull. The Premier League outfit badly need a result to lift the gloom that is beginning to consume the blue half of Merseyside, but this tie is fraught with danger. Especially with the Toffees having already exited one cup competition this season to Championship opposition.


Hull Vs Everton – Key Facts:

  • Two of the past three FA Cup tournaments has seen Hull exit in the Third Round, while Everton have exited at this stage in four of the past seven seasons.
  • Hull are currently enjoying a three-game unbeaten home run (W2 D1), scoring six goals across these fixtures.
  • Everton are in dreadful form. Last Sunday’s 3-2 home loss to Brighton made it one win in 12 (D3 L8) having not won away from home in eight (D3 L5 all comps).


Hull are enduring a tough time at the moment, losing back-to-back league games as their squad recovers from illness. They haven’t been beaten at home, though, in three, scoring plenty of goals in these games, so are fancied to cause an Everton side without an away clean sheet since August (eight games) problems. Yet the visitors have key players returning and did at least finish the recent defeat to Brighton strongly.
