EVERTON CHANGES: Onyango and Small come on. Thierry Small at 16 years, 176 days in the youngest player ever to feature for the Toffees.
Everton are pushing for a fourth. The ball drops to Kenny on the left side of the box, but he lashes well over the bar.

Gomes curves wide from 25 yards out. Everton are eager to snare the cushion of a second here.
First real chance of the second period. Godfrey rises well to an inadvertent flick on from an Owls head but can only nod a left-wing delivery over the bar.
Could this finally be Everton's year? You have to go all the way back to 1995 for the last time they won a major trophy. Sheff Weds will hope not.

One minute added.
VIDEO: DCL snares the opener
Coleman's superb dash into the box ends with a cut back that is just begging to be tapped home. Richarlison thinks he's going to finish it but can't get away from Urhoghide and the ball somehow evades the Everton forward.
James takes down a high ball from the right. He turns his man and plays a rabona pass to Sigurdsson who can't turn it in an outrageous assist as his curling 18-yard shot flies wide of the far post.
Sigurdsson teases a low, curving ball in from the right, but DCL and Richarlison can't react to provide the finihsing touch.
The ex-Blade will probably have taken extra pleasure in netting that goal too!
The visitors surge straight up the pitch looking for an immediate response, but Everton's rearguard stands firm under the pressure.
- GoalDominic Calvert-LewinEverton
GOAL! Calvert-Lewin slides in at the far post to convert Gomes' driven, low cross from the left.
The Owls are unbeaten in five but have not played since January 9 after postponing two Championship games against Coventry and Wycombe Wanderers because of positive Covid-19 tests.
Wednesday make a real meal of defending a right-wing Everton corner. There have been a few moments where they have seemed certain to concede, only to recover by getting a raft of bodies in the way to deny the hosts.
Everton have had 70 per cent of the possession. It's 3-2 to the Toffees in terms of shots and 2-2 for efforts on target.
It's been a lively opening. Both sides are looking to attack. Everton are edging it but the visitors have given a good account of themselves.
Calvert-Lewin spins on to James' delightful pass but sees his shot well smothered by the keeper. Wonderful one-touch build-up from Everton there.
Green cuts in from the left but sees his shot easily saved by Olsen.
Richarlison is allowed to race in from the left on to James' wonderful pass and fire coolly into the corner. Everton think they are ahead - but the flag is up for offside! No goal.
STAT: Everton are aiming to reach the FA Cup fifth round for the first time since 2015-16. The Toffees have progressed from 11 of their last 12 FA Cup ties against sides from a lower division.
OFF THE BAR! Richarlison's free header is tipped on to the bar by Joe Wildsmith after the Brazilian was left in acres of space to meet Coleman's cross.
STAT: The Owls have been knocked out in 16 of their last 17 FA Cup ties against Premier League opponents. Their only victory was a 1-0 success at Brighton last season.
Adam Reach is given the freedom of Goodison to set himself and take aim from 25 yards, forcing Olsen into a smart stop.
Everton are first to show. A slick move leads to a nervy touch in that Owls defence, but Richarlison's first-time strike is well blocked.
STAT: Wednesday have lost just one of their last nine away games in all comps against Everton (W5 D3), though this is their first visit since a 1-1 draw in the Premier League in March 2000.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Sheffield Wednesday get us underway.
A reminder that the winner of this tie will meet either Wycombe or Spurs in round five. Those two sides meet on Monday night (tomorrow).
This is your 10-minute warning! In the meantime, why not catch up on the latest gossip from the continent via our Euro Papers video?
Everton make five changes to the side that won at Wolves last time out. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is back in the starting XI along with Robin Olsen, Seamus Coleman, Andre Gomes and Richarlison.
STAT: Wednesday's Callum Paterson has been involved in five goals in his last five FA Cup outings(3 goals, 2 assists).
DID YOU KNOW? This will be the 20th FA Cup match (including replays) between Everton and Sheffield Wednesday, the third most played match in the competition's history. The Toffees have progressed from the last five ties, most recently a fourth round meeting in 1989-90.
Ben Godfrey: “We know what it would mean to the fans and to us, to do something really special we can all enjoy. Champions League football, for players and clubs, is the pinnacle of the sport. To be involved is massive. But every football player values any trophy and medal."
New Sheff Weds recruit Andre Green features tonight after joining from Aston Villa recently. He said: “Football is all I know and I want to get out there and show what I can do. With everything that’s been happening, I’m sure the whole squad will get their chance at some point. For me personally, this is an exciting time for me at a new club the size and stature of this one. The league is the priority of course but the FA Cup is the FA Cup and this is a big game I am looking forward to. If my chance comes I am ready to take it and if I have to wait for another chance I must be ready then as well.”
Owls caretaker boss Neil Thompson: “We're chomping at the bit after the break we've had. This is a diversion from the Championship and we want to continue our momentum. Going to Goodison Park is a great challenge for everyone. We will be there to enjoy it and play on the front foot. Nothing better than pitting your wits against the best teams."
Carlo Ancelotti: "The FA Cup for us is very important. I want to put out the best line-up as possible against Sheffield (Wednesday) because we want to move on in this competition and I think Dominic [Calvert-Lewin] can start because he trained well."
CONFIRMED STARTING XIs – EVERTON: Olsen, Coleman, Holgate, Mina, Godfrey, Doucoure, Gomes, Sigurdsson; Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin. /// SHEFF WEDS: Wildsmith, Urhoghide, Brennan, Borner, Galvin, Harris, Bannan, Pelupessy, Reach, Green, Paterson.
