Under pressure Everton boss Rafa Benitez needed extra time to seal their place in the FA Cup Fourth Round as the Toffees eked out 3-2 win at Hull.

Everton were forced to strain every sinew on the east coast as the tension surrounding Rafa continues to grow.

And with the TV cameras beaming down on the Spaniard, Everton made a horror start, as Tyler Smith got free to nod Hull in front inside 60 seconds.

But credit to Everton as they responded with some Premier League class before the break as Demarai Gray and Andre Gomes turned the tie around.

However, with the visitors unable to see it out after the restart, Ryan Longman’s wonder strike forced the pressure of extra time.

But yet again Everton mustered up a timely response as Andros Townsend smashed home a rocket to win it.
