Everton midfielder Kevin Kilbane is relishing the chance to tackle former club Sunderland in the FA Cup.

Sunderland have been drawn to face Everton in the fourth round following Monday's draw.

Kilbane admits it will be special occasion for him to come up against one of his former employers.

"I am very excited and I'm looking forward to it," Kilbane told Sky Sports News.

"I am not sure what sort of reception I'll get from the Sunderland supporters and I am sure there will be a few jeers going around the stadium.

"We have got to fancy our chances at home no matter who we'd have played against, but it is extra special for me to be playing against Sunderland really."
