Fulham and Everton have failed to make an impact in the League Cup in recent years and both clubs made an ominous start to this season's competition, requiring extra-time to overcome lower league opposition in the last round.

Hugo Rodallega's 117th-minute goal gave Fulham a 5-4 win against League Two Burton Albion, while Everton needed a late Marouane Fellaini strike to defeat League One side Stevenage at Goodison Park.

Fulham have not progressed beyond the third round since 2004 and their failure to win at home since April does not bode well for their prospects on Tuesday night.

Everton are unbeaten this season but they have only once reached the League Cup fourth round in the last quarter of a century. That came in the 2007-08 season, when David Moyes' side advanced to the semi-finals before succumbing 3-1 on aggregate to Chelsea.


  • Everton are unbeaten against Fulham in their last eight clashes in all competitions, winning six and drawing two.

  • Fulham have enjoyed just one home win in their last five games against the Toffees in all competitions, losing two and drawing two.

  • Fulham

  • Fulham are without a win in the League Cup in their last four games (D2, L2), failing to score in three of those fixtures.

  • They have never progressed beyond the quarter-finals.

  • The Cottagers are winless in their last six home matches (D1, L5).

  • Bryan Ruiz has scored in each of Fulham's last two home games against Everton.

  • Everton

  • Everton are unbeaten in all competitions this season, with three wins and three draws.

  • However, they have managed just one win in their last six League Cup games on the road, losing four and drawing one.

  • They have twice been runners-up in this competition, in 1977 and 1984.
