Everton captain Phil Neville claims the pressure is now all on Sunderland in their battle for an FA Cup semi-final spot.
Sunderland frustrated the Toffees in a full-blooded last-eight clash at Goodison Park on Saturday, forcing a replay as the game ended 1-1.
"We knew it was going to be tight. Over the years, every team of Martin O'Neill's we have played we have been neck and neck with," said Neville. "We are neck and neck in the league now, there is not much to choose between us.
"You speak to Sunderland, they will feel going back to their place they will be favourites. They probably are, but they will be wary of us. The pressure swings to them now.
"Their fans got behind them, it was a great atmosphere, but we are still in the hat and that is the most important thing.
"There weren't too many chances for us to win it - maybe we could have had a penalty, maybe not. But we live to fight another day. It was a great cup tie, let's make the replay a good cup tie as well."
