Odds, referee, VAR, TV details: Everything you need to know ahead of Everton v Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday will take a break from their battle against relegation in the Championship when they take on Everton in the FA Cup fourth round this weekend.

Wednesday, 20th January 2021, 12:00 pm

The Owls haven’t kicked a ball in anger since beating Exeter City in the third round due to a Covid-19 outbreak at the club forcing the postponement of league games against Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers.

Now they will be hoping to pull off a major upset by defeating Carlo Ancelotti’s in-form Toffeemen in their own back yard as they look to progress in the world’s oldest cup competition.
