Matt Ritchie: Grew up on the south coast

The 23-year-old began his career with Portsmouth and grew up in the area and has described the draw as "unbelievable".

"Obviously I'm excited being a Pompey fan and growing up in the area," he told BBC Radio Solent. "It's a great draw for me personally but also the club.

"When we played them in the league last season it was a great atmosphere and I'm sure it will be again. It's a derby so it'll be a tough test but I'm sure if we're at the races we'll be fine."

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
