A mixed bag tonight. The gradual easing of the Premiership fixture backlog and the FA Cup gives us a game from each competition. That said, a cracking night ahead of you if you’re attending either game.
Everton vs Reading
Everton host Reading as they continue their stealthy path towards the recognition they deserve this season, but are unlikely to get in the Premiership. Cups are still wonderful things as Birmingham proved against Arsenal on Sunday and I hope that David Moyes gets a bit a sunshine in his occasionally overcast life.
I predict a 2-0 win which is a handy enough 11/2.

Chelsea vs Manchester United
I’m struggling to see this Chelsea revival we keep being told is taking place. Chelsea looked good against Copenhagen in the Champions League, but a rested Copenhagen are not to be confused with United in the spring.
United’s away form however has been uninspiring by their own standards and it’s difficult to see them choosing Stamford Bridge as the place where they choose to go into overdrive.
The most obvious outcome would appear to be a draw. So let’s go for an exciting one and turn a few quid at the same time and say 2-2 at a rather large 14/1.
