The Championship club take on Rafa Benitez's European champions at Elland Road, and Warnock knows the visitors will have to turn in a sub-par performance for his men to stand a chance of making the last four.
He said: "You never know if it's your last big cup tie really, so it whets the appetite. I don't think I could have picked a better team to play against.
"It promises to be fabulous with no pressure on us. Whatever team I select we can just go out and enjoy it.
"I hope we go out and give them a good game, but if we play well and they do as well there's only one winner, so we have to hope they're not right up to it and we're on top of our game.
"We can give anyone a run for their money on our patch and it promises to be a really god cup tie. There's nothing else happening in the country that night so all eyes will be on the cup tie and it will be exciting.
"As you saw against the others, I think Everton picked a strong side and we did well against them so it's all credit to the boys."
