Everton manager Roberto Martinez: “When you see the work of the players and then you don’t get the rewards you deserve, it is painful.
“[It is] a pain we share with all the fans. The frustration is there. We’ve seen outstanding signs this season and that is why it is so frustrating to see in games where we are winning, we throw it away.
“I don’t see it as a make-or-break (game). I see it as the type of game we want to be involved in. We have the advantage of playing it at Goodison, and we could achieve something really special.”
Everton and Chelsea have been paired together nine times in the FA Cup – with Chelsea prevailing in six of those ties, and Everton advancing on three occasions.
However, Chelsea have never won an FA Cup game at Goodison Park (L1, D2).
The sides last met in the competition in 2011, when Everton went through after winning a fourth-round replay at Stamford Bridge via a penalty shoot-out.
The Toffees have won five of their last nine home games against Chelsea in all competitions (D1, L3), scoring in each of those matches.
The Toffees have lost five of their last seven FA Cup quarter-finals, including the last two.
They have reached the FA Cup quarter-finals for the fifth time in eight seasons.
Roberto Martinez’s men have lost three of their last four home games.
Romelu Lukaku has scored in each of his four FA Cup appearances for Everton.
Aaron Lennon has scored in five of his last seven appearances and has six goals in 2016 – compared to just four in the previous three calendar years.
The last time the Blues lost an FA Cup quarter-final was against Barnsley in 2008. Since then they have won four of five matches at this stage, drawing the other at Manchester United in 2013.
Guus Hiddink has won all six of his FA Cup matches in charge of Chelsea.
Diego Costa has scored or assisted 17 goals in his last 15 games in all competitions (11 goals, 6 assists).
