Everton have been drawn at home to Rotherham United in the FA Cup Third Round.

The tie will take place over the weekend of January 8-10, potentially in-between an EFL Cup semi-final for the Blues on January 4/5 and the trip to Wolves in the Premier League on January 12.

Last time they met was in the 2018-19 Carabao Cup, when Marco Silva’s Toffees ran out 3-1 winners at Goodison Park in August 2018, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin netting a brace.

Paul Warne’s side are currently 19th in the Championship with three wins from their 14 games so far this season.

Everton have won the competition five times in their 142-year history, but their FA Cup triumph over Manchester United in 1995 remains their most recent piece of silverware.

They reached the semi-finals in 2016, but have not made it past the fourth round in the four years since, suffering defeats to Liverpool (twice), Leicester City and Millwall.
