Millwall v Everton team line-ups: Lions make three changes as Jed Wallace ruled out with a knock

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Millwall are missing Jed Wallace for today’s FA Cup fourth round tie against Everton.

The winger has been nursing a niggle in recent weeks and is not risked against Marco Silva’s side at The Den.

Ben Thompson and Ben Marshall, who both started in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough, are cup tied after playing for Portsmouth and Norwich City.

And Fred Onyedinma, who could well have been another option for a bench role, also featured for Wycombe Wanderers before his loan spell was cut short.

Aiden O’Brien replaces Wallace in the starting line-up with Ryan Tunnicliffe and Shane Ferguson the other switches.

There are also places on the bench for young striker George Alexander – the son of ex-Lion Gary – along with midfielder Jethro Hanson.

Former Charlton Athletic winger Ademola Lookman starts for Everton.

Millwall are unbeaten in their last eight FA Cup home matches – winning seven of them and scoring 19 goals in the process.

And the Lions have won their last four home FA Cup ties against Premier League opposition – three of those came in the 2016-17 campaign when they reached the last eight of the competition.

Everton needed a replay to beat Millwall in the FA Cup in 2006 – Tim Cahill netting the only goal against his former club.

The Merseyside outfit have not lost in three visits to The Den since a top-flight reverse in 1988.

Millwall: Archer, Romeo, Hutchinson, Cooper, M Wallace, Tunnicliffe, Leonard, Williams, Ferguson, O’Brien, Gregory. Subs: Martin, Pearce, Meredith, Hanson, Skalak, Morison, Alexander.

Everton: Pickford, Keane, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Digne, Mina, Gueye, Coleman, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Lookman. Subs: Stekelenburg, Baines, Zouma, Walcott, Tosun, Bernard, Davies.
