It must be noted Oldham's Matt Smith is an injury doubt for Saturday's tie. However, if he plays, Everton must prepare for an especially physical presence up front (via the Oldham Chronicle).
Liverpool struggled with Smith's confrontational approach in the previous round, and his side's overall aggression must be carefully prepared for by the Toffees.
Physicality in strikers is not a trait Everton have fared well against this season, with Christian Benteke, Kenwyne Jones, Carlton Cole and Demba Ba among the opposing front men to prosper.
The Toffees will hope Smith fails to recover, but even if he does miss out, Oldham are likely to provide a combative test for Everton's defenders.
John Heitinga has struggled in particular against brutish attackers and, if selected, the Latics will fancy their chances of flustering the Dutchman.
