Romelu Lukaku's injury time equaliser at Goodison Park last week meant West Ham United's FA Cup third-round tie with Everton would go to a replay at Upton Park tonight.

The Hammers have started the New Year with three successive draws and will see that run end this evening, but they will want to earn a first win against the Toffees since April 2007.

Both teams recorded draws at the weekend with Roberto Martinez's men collecting a home point against last season's Champions Manchester City.

Sam Allardyce will be back in the dugout tonight after missing Saturday's trip to Swansea City and will be hoping to take the home side beyond this stage for the first time since becoming manager in June 2011.

Guy Demel, James Tomkins, Ricardo Vaz Te and Jussi Jaaskelainen were not involved in the original tie and will hope to start this game, while Joey O'Brien, Diego Poyet and Carlton Cole are desperate for more of a run out this time around after appearing from the bench on Merseyside.

Alex Song is back in contention after missing last week's match as well as the trip to The Liberty Stadium, while there could also be a place in the matchday squad for new signing Doneil Henry.

The match is a 7:45pm kick-off and after the first-leg was screened by BT Sport, Live coverage will be available on the same channel from 7:15pm. The referee is Neil Swarbrick.
