The Premier League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Everton welcome Sheffield United to Goodison Park on Sunday.
The hosts will aim to keep their chances of a European-placed finish alive, while the already relegated visitors will look to close out the season with their heads held high.
Everton failed to make it two wins from two games as they were held to an uneventful goalless draw by Aston Villa on Thursday.
However, the result saw Carlo Ancellotti's men leapfrog eighth-placed Arsenal and move level on points with seventh-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
With just four points separating them from the Europa League qualification spot, Everton will head into this tie aiming to grab all three points and continue their charge for a top-six finish.
Eberechi Eze simply ran the show at Bramall Lane Stadium, scoring one goal and setting up the other to condemn the Blades to their 28th defeat of the season.
Sheffield United, who have already been relegated to the English second tier, have now managed just two wins from their last 13 outings across all competitions.
