Calvert-Lewin on target as Everton ease into fifth round

Everton booked a place in the FA Cup fifth round for the first time in five years courtesy of a routine 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Goodison Park.

Carlo Ancelotti once again demonstrated how seriously he is taking the competition with a strong line-up that ultimately had far too much for the Championship strugglers.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin got the ball rolling when he marked his return from a hamstring problem with a first goal in seven outings on the half hour. The England forward slid home Andre Gomes’ lovely cross to notch his 15th of the season for the Blues and his first since December 5.

The Blues upped the ante following the restart and took firm control of the tie with a quickfire double. Both goals came from James Rodriguez corners as Richarlison and then Yerry Mina made the most of perfect deliveries and some static defending.

Wednesday had made a fist of it in the first period but never truly looked like causing an upset as caretaker boss, Neil Thompson saw their three-match winning run in all competitions come to an end.

Everton will now host Wycombe or Tottenham in round five.
