Match Previews

Elder, Wilks & Magennis unavailable for Everton

6 January 2022

Head Coach Grant McCann had mixed news to report on the injury front ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup tie against Everton.

The Tigers will be looking to cause a cup upset when Rafael Benitez’s Toffees - currently 15th in the Premier League - visit the MKM Stadium.

Having had a depleted squad to choose from for the trip to Blackpool on New Year’s Day, McCann has provided an update on how the group is shaping up.

“We have Tom Huddlestone, Matt Ingram and Will Jarvis back,” said McCann.

“We’ve lost Josh Magennis to a hamstring injury which will keep him out of the game on Saturday. Hopefully he’ll be OK for Stoke. It’s not bad - it’s more of a fatigue injury. We won’t take a risk or a gamble with him this week. Hopefully, he’ll be ready to go again and be fit and available for selection against Stoke.

“We’ve lost Callum Elder which is a worse injury than what we thought actually. He’s probably going to miss the rest of the month. He made a signal to me about 15 or 20 minutes into the Blackpool game that he’d felt his groin. It’s disappointing to lose him because he’s a big player for us.

“Mallik Wilks has picked up a metatarsal injury which will keep him out for about eight weeks. We’re disappointed for Mallik. It’s been stop-start for him this season. He missed a big chunk of the start of the season through injury. It’s frustrating for us and Mallik but he’s around good people who will help him recover.”

Away from the disappointment of losing Elder, Wilks and Magennis to injury, McCann is pleased to have Huddlestone back available for selection for the visit of Everton.

“It’s nice to have as many fit and available players as possible,” said McCann.

“Tom has got real knowledge and experience of the Premier League and the Championship. He’s missed 10 days of training and has come back in to train a couple of days this week. We’ve got to put everything into perspective when we’re thinking about picking the team.”

Hull City 2-3 Everton: Match Report

8 January 2022

Hull City have been knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup after a 3-2 defeat against Premier League side Everton.

Andros Townsend’s finish in the first half of extra-time saw the Toffees progress through to the fourth round of the prestigious competition.

Grant McCann made three changes to his starting XI that faced Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship on New Year’s Day. Tom Eaves, Tyler Smith and Randell Williams all came in for Josh Magennis, Callum Elder and Ryan Longman, with the latter of those three on the substitutes' bench. There were also recalls to the bench for Matt Ingram, George Moncur and Tom Huddlestone, while academy duo Josh Hinds and Jevon Mills were also named among the substitutes.

It was the perfect start for the Tigers as they took the lead within the opening minute. Tyler Smith evaded his marker as he headed home George Honeyman’s free-kick delivery from close range.

It was almost two moments later, but Eaves’ header was pushed over the bar by Asmir Begović. The two would face each other again as Begović blocked Eaves’ effort at his near post.

Keane Lewis-Potter, who was making his 100th appearance for the Tigers, was next to take aim, but his shot flew over the bar.

The Toffees equalised in the 21st minute as Demarai Gray placed his effort into the bottom corner to finish off a slick passing move.

The visitors gained momentum from the equaliser as they started to craft opportunities. Anthony Gordon hit the post, while Nathan Baxter produced two stunning saves to deny Gray and Michael Keane.

Everton, however, wouldn’t be denied a third time as André Gomes headed in Jonjoe Kenny’s precise cross.

The Tigers came roaring back as Greg Docherty tested Begović in the Everton goal, before Sean McLoughlin saw his volley blocked from the resulting corner.

In the second half, Baxter was forced to parry Gordon’s fierce drive while Gray saw his left-footed attempt blocked by McLoughlin. From the resulting corner, Vitaliy Mykolenko volleyed over from inside the Tigers’ penalty area.

McCann made a triple substitution just past the hour mark, as Huddlestone, Moncur and Longman all came onto the pitch. The latter of the three almost caught Begović out as his lofted cross-shot looped over the crossbar.

The three substitutes would combine in the 71st minute to find the equaliser. Huddlestone won the ball high up the pitch to play through Moncur, who in turn teed up Longman to curl a spectacular first-time effort into the top corner.

Longman almost turned provider just minutes later as his backheel found Lewis-Potter in space, as the forward struck his effort over the bar, while at the other end, Gray was inches away to restoring Everton’s lead with a curling effort. Baxter then pushed away Townsend’s corner delivery, before Lewis-Potter hit the woodwork with a powerful drive.

Abdoulaye Doucouré thought he had won it for Everton late on in the regular 90 minutes, but his header went over the bar as the fixture headed to extra-time.

In the first half of extra-time, Gray saw his shot blocked by Jacob Greaves, before Everton retook the lead through Townsend’s swerving strike from range, with his right-footed attempt finding the top corner.

The Tigers pushed for an equaliser in the second period of extra-time as Begović produced a stunning save from point-blank range to deny Eaves, before Hinds could only poke the rebound narrowly wide. Baxter was called upon one more time in injury time, as he pushed away Allan’s attempt.
