  • West Ham come into the match off the back of an eventful 2-2 draw at leaders Leicester on Sunday, with a win possibly being enough to take them up to fifth. That would rely on Crystal Palace winning at Manchester United, mind.

  • Victory for Watford would make them certain of a Premier League place next season, although they are probably safe as it stands, given the gap between 16th and 17th. The Hornets had their own eventful match at the weekend, Ben Watson's early goal earning them a 1-0 win at West Bromwich in a match that witnessed two penalty saves by Heurelho Gomes.

    4/20/2016 8:38:37 PM
  • FULL-TIME MAN 2-0 CRY This match was over a long time ago, to be honest. Both these sides have FA Cup semi-finals to look forward to this weekend but it is the Old Trafford side who will head to Wembley in better mood, coasting to the three points against a Palace side still just above the relegation fight.
    4/20/2016 8:48:07 PM
  • 90 min LIV 4-0 EVE We're into seven minutes of injury time at Anfield.
    4/20/2016 8:51:26 PM
  • FULL-TIME LIV 4-0 EVE The Toffees are put out of their misery - and what a miserable evening it was at Anfield for the blue brigade. Four different scorers for the in-form Reds and just a red card for the visitors. Wembley on Saturday against Manchester United suddenly looks that little bit more daunting.
    4/20/2016 8:56:42 PM
  • Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits his joy at the derby romp has been tempered by the injury suffered by Origi. "I would like to say yes, I am delighted, but the injury to Divock has cost me some joy. The first half was a derby, it was wild from Everton, not patient enough. We could have played better but scored two goals. I can't say too much about Origi but they say it is disgusting, awful pictures. But it's not broken, it is a twisted ankle, he is on crutches walking around so we will have to see."
    4/20/2016 9:29:46 PM
  • Roberto Martinez believes his Everton side will be able to live themselves for Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United. "The game is so big at Wembley that it is a game they don't need lifting. We have to regroup and in typical Everton fashion we have to give the fans what they deserve. The showing we gave today was horrible for them to see and for us to experience."
    4/20/2016 9:31:17 PM
  • Slaven Bilic was pleased to gain revenge over Watford for defeat at Vicarage Road earlier this season. "We wanted to prove to Watford that we are a much better team than the game between us at their ground. We can say they had half of their mind on the weekend and they rested players which we expected. But their line-up still had internationals. We are victims of our success as the bar is always more and more up. We are coping with that well."
    4/20/2016 9:32:38 PM
  • Quique Sanchez Flores managed to take some positives from his side's showing at Upton Park. "The application was very good from us. We conceded really early and then it was very tough to play against a tough team as they had confidence early. In the second half, we reacted really well but not good enough to reduce three goals. We have used a lot of players recently and the plan was to try to conserve and be fit for the weekend [Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace]. Practically all of the players will be fit."

    4/20/2016 9:35:10 PM
  • Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew after his side's defeat at Manchester United: "I was disappointed to concede a goal like we did in the first six minutes, it was avoidable. There was a bit of blurred focus from my players, in terms of [Sunday's FA Cup] semi-final. You could see a bit of that in our play. It's understandable."
    4/20/2016 9:37:30 PM
  • Louis van Gaal felt his Manchester United side should have won by more: "I was very happy with the performance [but] we should have scored many more goals."
