Baxter joined Latics on a free transfer in the summer after rejecting a new contract at Goodison Park and the 21-year-old boyhood Liverpool fan, who remains the Toffee's youngster ever senior appearance maker, is primed for the latest poignant encounter in a sensational cup run.

"He probably wants 150 tickets," Philliskirk said.

"He's been superb for us having left Everton in the summer.

"It will be a fantastic occasion for Jose, playing against players he was training with last season.

"It's dream stuff you probably couldn't have wished for. If you'd have said you're going to come here and play Liverpool, then you're going to beat them and play Everton then you'd think you were stupid.

"Anybody would think you're stupid, it's Boys Own stuff.

"I don't think he's got a point to prove really, he'll just want to go there and do well - as will every other player."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
