Middlesbrough FC vs. Everton FC – Live Stream, Team News and Capital One Cup Match Preview

Middlesbrough vs. Everton takes place tonight in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

The game takes place at the Riverside Stadium and is scheduled to start at 19:45 GMT.

Team News:
Middlesbrough have a full-strength squad to choose from.

Uruguayan forward Christian Stuani may start after returning to full fitness.

Everton travel to Teesside with doubts over James McCarthy (groin) and Gareth Barry (shin), with both set to be assessed ahead of kick-off.

What they’ve said ahead of kick-off:

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka: “That can be our biggest problem – to think that because we beat Manchester City and Manchester United and played well against Liverpool and Arsenal, the game will be easy.

“The reason we did well against those teams is that we worked hard for 90 minutes or more. Just because we are close to the top of the table and we beat Manchester United in the last round and we’re playing at home and will be feeling the atmosphere, to be over-confident would be a big mistake.”

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: “In this competition I don’t think divisional status gives you a benefit.

“You need to be ready for the game with a clear understanding of how to perform. Clearly the mentality in our camp is to be ready – we can’t not be ready after the feeling at the weekend.”
