OPTA Facts - FA Cup Fifth Round + Replay

Everton v Oldham Athletic (replay)

  • Everton are now without a win in six FA Cup games against Oldham Athletic (D3 L3) and have not eliminated the Latics from the competition since February 1912.
  • The Toffees are looking to make the sixth round for the 28th time. Only Arsenal (36), Man Utd (33) and Tottenham (29) have reached the round more than 28 times.
  • Oldham, meanwhile, have only made the sixth round twice before (1990 and 1994); on both of those occasions they were ultimately eliminated by Manchester United in the semi-finals.
  • Having defeated Liverpool in the fourth round, Oldham are the first team to face both Merseyside giants in successive FA Cup ties since Tottenham Hotspur in 1995.
  • Matt Smith has scored three goals in his last two FA Cup appearances for Oldham, with those goals coming against Liverpool and Everton.
  • The Latics had more shots on target (five) than Everton (four) in the original tie.
  • Everton have only won three of their last seven home games in the FA Cup, drawing two and losing two.
  • David Moyes' side have been eliminated from the FA Cup on home soil by a lower league team in two of the last five seasons, with Oldham themselves one of the teams to win at Goodison Park (2008, Round Three).
  • Indeed, Oldham's last two away wins against top-flight sides in the FA Cup have both come at Goodison Park, although the victory prior to that 2008 win came way back in March 1913.
  • Excluding games when they were in the top-flight themselves, Oldham have kept just one clean sheet in 17 away FA Cup games against sides from the first tier, and that was in the 1-0 win at Everton in 2008. In the other 16, they have conceded a total of 58 goals (3.6 per game).

Middlesbrough v Chelsea

  • This will be the fourth meeting between Middlesbrough and Chelsea in the FA Cup proper; of the previous three ties, Chelsea have won two (including the 1997 final) and ‘Boro have won one.
  • In all competitions, Chelsea have won their last five against Middlesbrough without conceding a single goal (13 goals scored).
  • The Teesiders have only lost three of their last 22 FA Cup games at the Riverside Stadium (W15 D4).
  • Since their most recent relegation from the Premier League, ‘Boro have been eliminated from both of their FA Cup ties against top-flight sides, including a replay defeat to Sunderland last season.
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in 26 FA Cup games, though this run does include a penalty shootout defeat to Everton in February 2011.
  • The Londoners' record of 26 unbeaten FA Cup games is the longest ever run without defeat in the FA Cup (next best Blackburn Rovers on 23, ended in 1886).
  • Since their semi-final defeat to Liverpool in April 2006, the Blues have lost just one of 37 FA Cup games outright (W30 D6).
  • Chelsea have won seven and lost none of their last nine away games in the competition, scoring 22 and conceding just six.
  • The Blues have only lost one of their last 52 FA Cup games against lower ranked sides; losing 0-1 to Barnsley in March 2008.
