Despite our own involvement in the FA Cup having been curtailed for this season, we received a pretty decent bonus today as Everton played Villa at Goodison. Both Tim Cahill and Tony Hibbert picked up yellow cards that rendered them ineligible for the upcoming match at SJP this coming Sunday.

Unluckily, Arteta and Lescott failed to pick up the bookings to rule them out too but Tim Howard also seemed to be feeling his hamstring fairly gingerly, making it a possibility he could be absent as well.
