FA Cup: Everton ease into quarter-finals

Toffees are too strong for Oldham while Chelsea prepare for Middlesbrough test

Kevin Mirallas puts Everton ahead against Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night

Everton booked an FA Cup quarter-final tie against Wigan Athletic after overcoming Oldham Athletic in Tuesday night's last-16 replay at Goodison Park.

The home side went ahead on 15 minutes when Kevin Mirallas turned in Darron Gibson's cross. Oldham's Jose Baxter hit the inside of the post against his former side before Leighton Baines doubled Everton’s advantage from the penalty spot 11 minutes before the interval.

Leon Osman put Everton 3-0 ahead on 62 minutes before substitute Matt Smith scored his fourth goal of Oldham's cup run two minutes later.

FA Cup holders Chelsea travel to Championship side Middlesbrough this evening looking to set up a last-eight clash with Manchester United.

Interim manager Rafael Benitez will be without defenders Gary Cahill because of illness and Cesar Azpilicueta because of a leg injury.

The match is a repeat of the 1997 FA Cup final, which Chelsea won 2-0 with goals from Roberto Di Matteo and Eddie Newton.

Key Points

  • Everton record a 3-1 win over Oldham Athletic in FA Cup fifth-round replay
  • Toffees now meet Wigan Athletic in the quarter-finals
  • Chelsea travel to the Riverside Stadium to take on Middlesbrough on Wednesday
