He believes that this season presents as good a chance as any.
"I've just got this feeling for Everton this season," he admits. "Which is strange really, because I'm not usually like that!
"I just think that with the way the cup has gone this season, and with the team Everton have and the way they have been playing, they have a great chance.
"They had a little bit of a wobble at the turn of the year, and they have dropped a few points of late, but at this stage of the competition a home draw is all any side could ask for. Wigan are a decent side on their day with some very good players, but Everton have got to fancy their chances. I certainly do.
"Then once Wigan are out the way, the hope is that they can avoid the big boys in the semi-finals and draw the winner of the Millwall versus Blackburn Rovers tie. Of course they will have to beat one of the big sides if they are to win the cup, but you'd rather face them in the final then the semis, that's for sure."
