What is up with the Toffees? They received a questionable red card vs. Liverpool, that much is true. Still, I look at their current roster vs. that of a past squad and it seems they are lacking some potency. Some of those players have been there for quite a stint.
One thing I remember is that after Leeds' play vs. Man Utd. in the FA Cup, Everton got Jermaine Beckford, hero of one of the Leeds' matches but it looks like he is at Liecester City now and he has only 2 appearances with them this season. 8 goals in 34 appearances for Everton, sounds like Everton should not have let him go, now we know what might be part of their problem. Sounds like they need him!
Beckford's first game after the request was in the FA Cup 3rd Round, away to Leeds' great rivals Manchester United who were two divisions above the Yorkshire club. Leeds caused an upset by winning 1–0, with Beckford scoring the only goal.<sup id="cite_ref-19" class="reference"></sup> This was the first time that Manchester United had been knocked out of a cup competition at the third round stage under the management of Alex Ferguson.[
