Decent chance you would think

The draw is done for the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup, and Everton have been handed a decent chance of making it into the semi finals of the competition. The Blues will travel to Middlesbrough on November 30th.

Boro beat Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford, minutes before the draw was done tonight. Toffees had hoped for Sheffield Wednesday as their fixture of choice, but the Owls will be away to Stoke City. Manchester City, who looked imperious today, will be hosting Hull City. To round off the fixtures, there will not be a replay of the Merseyside Derby in this round as Liverpool have been drawn away to Southampton.

Everton will travel to Riverside Stadium, and that will be the first game between the two clubs since early 2009. The Toffees knocked out Boro 2-1 victors in the Sixth Round of the FA Cup, before losing the final at Wembley to Chelsea.

So with that done, do you think Everton can beat Middlesbrough to go through to the semis of the Capital One Cup? Remember, this is the one trophy that has eluded the Blues in all their years of existence.
