West Ham vs Everton

Nobby Solano is cup-tied (as is Henri Camara) so Lee Bowyer may well make a return to the team and the right wing. Carlton Cole is eligible to play despite picking up a fifth yellow card on Saturday, he is banned for the Boro game on the 22nd.

For Everton Leighton Baines is out after picking up a hamstring injury at the weekend and will probably be replaced by Joleon Lescott. Everton are in superb form at the moment and are on a ten game unbeaten run since losing to Liverpool in the league.

However Lucas Neill in his Captain's Blog thinks that having the home advantage just might swing the game West Ham's way.

"I am hoping for an intimidating atmosphere and a genuine opportunity to win a game that will get us into a cup semi-final. Thank you in advance for the proverbial 12th-man support we are going to need against Everton on Wednesday."

A win to take us through to the semi-final would be a good way for Alan Curbishley to round of his first season in charge at West Ham.
