Championship team Hull City host top-flight Everton in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.
England’s main cup competition serves as a welcome break from the difficulties of league football for both clubs. Hull are just four points above the Championship drop zone after playing one match more than Peterborough United in 22nd place while Everton have exactly one win in October, November, December and early January.
Here’s all you need to know about this meeting between a couple of undeveloped pages.

Hull has been besieged by a number of injured and covid absence during the party period, which led to two matches being postponed after Christmas. City returned to the pitch on New Year’s Day for a 1-0 loss to Blackpool but lost full-back Callum Elder – one of the division’s most creative defenders – after just under a quarter to an effort in the groin.
Defense colleague Ryan Longman and forward Josh Magennis also came out of the competition worse than when they entered, which means that their involvement on Saturday is uncertain. This latest amount of injuries is coming to Alfie Jones, Lewie Coyle and Josh Emmanuel in the treatment room.
As head coach Grant McCann told the Hull Daily Mail: “We have a lot of bumps and bruises right now.”

Everton have been plagued by their own injuries. Alex Iwobi’s participation in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations deprives Rafa Benitez of another option while Richarlison (calf), Yerry Mina (calf) and Andros Townsend (foot) will remain sidelined by fitness concerns.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin marked his long-awaited return with a missed penalty against Brighton but may not risk the cup match after such a long period in the recovery.
Jarrad Branthwaite and Fabian Delph were both left out of the squad who stumbled to defeat the Seagulls to start 2022 with a whine. Although new signing Vitaliy Mykolenko may be in line for a debut after the club failed to register him in time for their latest league outing.
You can read Everton’s predicted line-up for the match here.
Everton’s almost constant presence in England’s top class has limited their meetings with Hull City to just 21 games in all competitions. The pair first had to play three matches to find a winner of their fourth round of the FA Cup in 1927 – Hull were the final victories against a Toffees team that would win England’s highest league next season.
But since the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Hull have beaten Everton only twice in 15 meetings (D4 L9).

Hull’s insecure position in 19th place is based on the solid foundation for the division’s fourth best defense in open play (per Opta). However, this record has much to thank for the impressive individual campaigns that both players have had for guarding Hull’s nets – although neither of them has managed to stop the flood of concessions from fixed games.
Everton are hardly a force to be reckoned with at either end of the pitch, but may well have enough to avoid an upset team against an impoverished squad that sits 24 places below them in the football pyramid.
Prediction: Hull 1-2 Everton
