The date has been confirmed for Brentford’s Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Everton. The match will be played at Goodison Park on Saturday 5 February. It will kick-off at 3pm.
The Bees reached this stage with a 4-1 win over Port Vale in the Third Round last weekend. Bryan Mbeumo came off the substitute’s bench to grab a hat-trick after Marcus Forss had opened the scoring. Everton booked their spot as they came from behind to win 3-2 away to Hull City.
This will be Brentford’s first visit to Goodison Park since 1954. That was a Football League Division Two match won 6-1 by the hosts. Everton were promoted that season and Brentford were relegated. The teams have not been in the same division since this current campaign.
It will be the second meeting between the sides this term. Brentford won the first in West London 1-0 thanks to an Ivan Toney penalty. The return game will be played at Goodison Park in May.
Ticket information for the fixture will follow in due course.
