I think they think they can win it. That Ranieri... so low profile as a major coach, well who knows what he can pull off. And I wouldn't rule it out.

They will not go the entire season without getting their act together; I would be very happy for us to knock them out of the cup before they do.

As for Everton in FA Cup games against top-flight opponents in the 3rd round, we haven't got a very good record in the last 25 years or so. Granted we've only played 4 ties against top-flight teams at the third round stage, during that period, West Ham (lost in a replay), Wimbledon (Lost in a replay), Newcastle (beat us at Goodison) and Blackburn Rovers who also won at Goodison.
The last occasion we beat top-flight opponents at the third round stage was way back in 1988 after a marathon tie with Sheffield Wednesday when the Toffees eventually triumphed 5-0 at Hillsborough.
