The Toffees head into the midweek game on the back of their 2-1 Premier League defeat away to Norwich, and will be looking to return to winning ways against the Latics to ensure progression to the quarter-finals.

David Moyes has yet to win silverware with Everton in his 11-year tenure, despite being the third-longest serving manager in the Premier League behind Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

The Scot will be keen for victory on Tuesday knowing that other Premier League rivals, such as Arsenal and Liverpool, have fallen at previous rounds.

Oldham, meanwhile, will be hoping to extend their four-game unbeaten run when they take to the field at Goodison.

The Latics have recorded three wins on the trot in League One, but will have to raise their game when they take on a resilient Everton side who have enjoyed an especially positive Premier League season thus far.

On the team news front, Everton boss Moyes looks set to make a few changes to the side which lost to the Canaries on Saturday.

Phil Neville, Kevin Mirallas and Victor Anichebe could all be recalled to the starting line-up after missing out at Carrow Road, while Tony Hibbert remains the only absentee with a calf strain.

Oldham caretaker manager Tony Philliskirk, meanwhile, will assess the fitness of trio James Tarkowski (hamstring), James Wesolowski (hamstrink) and Carl Winchester (ankle) ahead of the tie.

Cristian Montano and Youssouf M'Changama remain sidelined with thigh and knee injuries respectively, while ex-Evertonian midfielder Jose Baxter is set to return to the fold against his former club.
