Chance would be a fine thing

Manchester United v Crystal Palace (20:00 BST)

0 - Crystal Palace have failed to score in 10 of their 13 Premier League games against Manchester United & 5 of 6 at Old Trafford. Blanks

What the managers said...

Manchester United v Crystal Palace (20:00 BST)

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "I don't think anyone will look at our side and worry about us putting an under-strength team out when they see the team sheet. One or two changes I will definitely do just to increase the energy."

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "We have to win. We need to win. It is too important a game to rotate. We can only give pressure by winning."

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has already come out and said he will change his team around before Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Watford.

That helps Manchester United, who have their own semi-final to look forward to, but nothing is straightforward for Louis van Gaal's side at the moment.

Prediction: 2-0

Both sides could make changes ahead of their FA Cup semi-finals. Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard may be recalled for Manchester United, having been rested against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has ruled out regular starters Yannick Bolasie, Joel Ward, Joe Ledley and Scott Dann because of minor injuries. James McArthur returns from an ankle ligament injury suffered in February.

The whole situation at Everton is very strange and it feels like they have lost their way a bit. I don't understand how they have got themselves in such a mess with the players they have.

What the managers said...

Liverpool v Everton (20:00 BST)

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "Before I went to Dortmund there were lots of red cards in derbies. I don't want to see this. Not to show 'I am the man'. Maybe one or two fans want to see stuff like this, but it will never help."

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "When you compete in two tournaments, then weeks like this are, of course, defining. We are going to have our defining week in mid-April. Other teams have defining weeks in February when they are out of the FA Cup."

Liverpool could be without Divock Origi and Kolo Toure, who suffered back and hamstring injuries respectively against Bournemouth on Sunday. Emre Can and Jordan Henderson are not expected to play again this season.

Everton pair Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley are likely to be recalled after being named as substitutes on Saturday. James McCarthy returns from a ban, but Seamus Coleman and Phil Jagielka are both absent with hamstring injuries.

Villa duo left after Lerner rift

Football

David Ornstein

The departure of David Bernstein and Lord King from the Aston Villa board was triggered by a bitter fall-out with the club's owner Randy Lerner.  

Bernstein and King wrote to Villa chairman Steve Hollis on Monday, tendering their resignations with immediate effect.

It can now be revealed that their decisions were the result of a highly unpleasant exchange with Lerner.

After joining Villa in March and February respectively, Bernstein and King grew increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress they were able to make.

Hibs will recall first-choice keeper Mark Oxley in place of Scottish Cup semi-final hero Conrad Logan for Wednesday's rearranged Championship game. But they could be without Farid El Alagui, who limped out of the Hampden game with a groin injury, while Danny Carmichael and Dylan McGeouch are still out.

Rangers will welcome back wingers Billy King and Michael O'Halloran, both cup-tied for their victory over Celtic. Martyn Waghorn and Harry Forrester are still out but Rob Kiernan is fit.

The match comes four weeks before the sides meet in the Scottish Cup final on 21 May.

With the Hornets playing Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend, Quique Sanchez Flores is going to change his team around. Because of that, I am backing West Ham.

What the managers said...

West Ham v Watford (19:45 BST)

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "No matter which team they put out we need a win. The gap [to fourth place] is big, but the gap can be reduced. We are still in a big race for Europe and we are going to do everything we can."

Watford head coach Quique Sanchez Flores: "We will use a lot of new players but I am completely confident in the first XI I will pick; I am really curious how we can develop, and the characteristics of the players."

'Deila should have gone in January'

Chris Sutton says Ronny Deila should have been removed as Celtic boss before now.

The Norwegian will leave his job at the end of the season, the announcement coming three days after his side lost to Rangers in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

"Celtic should have made the [managerial] change before the January window, but they didn’t," said Sutton, a former Parkhead striker.

 "There has been a regression, they’re on the decline and they need someone to come in and shake things up. In Europe, Celtic have failed time and time again, in the big games Celtic have failed time and time again. Ronny’s a nice guy, but enough is enough."

Former Celtic midfielder Stilyan Petrov has accused the club of becoming "a bit sloppy" without the presence of Rangers in the top flight.

"They haven’t spent well enough, they haven’t rebuilt well enough and I don’t think there’s a big gap there," the Bulgarian said. "Rangers can go out next season and fancy themselves for the title."

Petrov also defended departing manager Ronny Deila. "He didn’t have enough time to show his work. If someone turns round and says, you haven’t done a good job, he can say, well we’ve won the league."

Ecclestone's 'actions speak louder than words'

Susie Wolff, a former development driver for the Williams, insists Bernie Ecclestone's claims that female drivers would "not be taken seriously" in Formula 1 are not reflective of his attempts to help her career.

The Scot - who has now retired and runs Dare to Be Different, a project aimed at getting more women into motorsport - has since spoken to the F1 boss.

"After hearing Bernie's comments in context and speaking to him today, it's clear we both have the goal of getting a female driver to F1," she said. "Through my years in motorsport, he was supportive of my mission to make it on to the grid.

"Last week, he agreed to come onboard with Dare to Be Different and, for me, actions always speak louder than words."
