Cleverley fit for FA Cup tie


Tom Cleverley has declared himself ready to help Everton in their quest to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Cleverley was forced to sit out the Premier League games against Aston Villa and West Ham due to ill-health, but he has returned to training ahead of Saturday's clash with Chelsea.

After a difficult season, the players are keen to give the repay the fans and are targeting a trip to Wembley.

"I have been training fully and I’m ready for this weekend. I will do everything I can to help the team get through to Wembley," Cleverley told evertontv.

"It’s a massive game. We need to do well in the FA Cup this year. It’s important we get to Wembley and give the Club a lift and give our fans something to shout about.

"We have to put in a performance on Saturday against a strong Chelsea team."

Chelsea have rediscovered their form under Guus Hiddink but Cleverley is confident the Toffees have the ability to reach the last four of the competition.

"I think there will be a massive atmosphere on Saturday and the stakes are high. Hopefully we can add to that atmosphere by playing at a high tempo," he said.

"We know we can do it against them, we know they are a strong team coming back into form but we have the game plan and the players to beat them."
