Everton have been drawn away to Millwall in the FA Cup fourth round.

The tie, which will take place over the weekend of January 26/27, will be the first time the sides have met since January 2006, when former Lion Tim Cahill put the Blues through to the fourth round in a 1-0 replay win.

The Toffees enjoyed a 2-1 third round victory at home to Lincoln City on Saturday to qualify for round four, while Millwall, 19th in the Championship, beat Hull City 2-1 to make this stage.

The Blues have won the competition five times in their 140-year history, but their triumph in 1995 remains their most recent piece of silverware.

They reached the semi-finals in 2016, but fell at the first hurdle in the last two seasons, to Leicester City and Liverpool.

The clash with Millwall will mark the start of a busy week for the Toffees, with Premier League games away at Huddersfield Town the following Tuesday (January 29) and at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers the next Saturday (February 2).
