Everton will travel again to this Sunday's opponents Liverpool in the FA Cup next month following today's draw.

The Merseyside clubs, who haven't met in cup competition away from Wembley since Dan Gosling's dramatic extra-time winner eight years, will play each other in the FA Cup for the first time since the semi-final of 2012.

Everton drew 1-1 on their last cup visit to Anfield which necessitated the replay at Goodison in which Gosling registered his most important goal in an otherwise unremarkable spell with the Blues.

The midfielder, who would later exploit a loophole in his contract to engineer a move away to Newcastle, converted from Andy van der Meyde's cross with less than two minutes of extra-time remaining to send Everton through to the Fifth Round that year.

Update: The match will be played on Friday, 5 January 2018, kick-off 7:55 pm, and will be televised live on BBC One.
