FA Cup Fifth Round: Bournemouth vs Everton

​Everton won 5-0 in the only previous FA Cup meeting, a fifth-round encounter in 1937. The two sides played out an entertaining 3-3 Premier League draw at the Vitality Stadium in November. All three Bournemouth goals that day came after 80 minutes.

Bournemouth have won four of nine matches in all competitions since the turn of the year (D2, L3). The Cherries have lost three of their last four home matches, conceding at least twice in each game. They have reached the fifth round for the first time in 27 years and just the fourth time in their 126-year existence. Bournemouth lost 1-0 to Manchester United in an away replay the last time they reached the fifth round, in 1989. The Cherries have finally been drawn at home after seven successive away ties in various cups.

Everton have won five of 11 games in all competitions in 2016 (D3, L3). They have lost only once in nine away matches (W3, D5) dating back to November. That loss was their League Cup semi-final second-leg defeat at Manchester City. The Toffees have reached at least the quarter-finals in three of the last four seasons. The exception was last year’s third-round defeat by West Ham on penalties. Everton are yet to concede in this season’s FA Cup.​
