Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said: "I'm a little disappointed that we didn't play better today. I thought Liverpool deserved to win and they had a bit more control than I would've liked.

"It was too easy for them at times and we need to correct that next time we play them. They have great technical players, we chased as hard as possible but we came up against a team that we need to learn from."

Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool lost 3-1 at Crystal Palace on 23 November and Reds' manager Brendan Rodgers felt that game may be a turning point in their season.

"It wasn't a good feeling the last time we were here in terms of our performance level," said Rodgers. "That was a real adverse moment for us and from that the team has got better. It was a really good win against a tough team today, but I thought we deserved the win.

"We started slowly but once we scored we took control. There's a great resilience and the team are functioning really well.

"Mario Balotelli has quality and he has impacted on the two games this week really well."

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew calls the chance Dwight Gayle had to make it 2-0 'the pivotal moment' in the game.

Simon Mignolet made an excellent save with his legs, and in the second half Gayle was kept very quiet by Liverpool.

Full reaction from both camps to come.

"Sherwood is a gamble"

Over on BBC Radio 5 live, 606 is in full swing. Robbie Savage and Darren Fletcher are taking your calls and you can have your say.

Robbie says: "Tim Sherwood was the right choice for Aston Villa. There weren't many strong contenders."

Andy, an Aston Villa fan, says: "I don't know about Sherwood, he's a gamble. I would've preferred Jurgen Klinsmann or Glenn Hoddle."

Paul, a Blackburn fan, says: "We need to prioritise the FA Cup over the league."

West Brom 4-0 West Ham

West Brom
AP

Record signing Brown Ideye scored twice as resurgent West Brom

thumped West Ham to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2008.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis:

"We mustn't get carried away. It was a good performance, we're very pleased, but there's still a long way to go in the league and obviously we need a little but of luck in the next draw.

"Things went our way and I'm really pleased for the players and, scoring four goals, all the punters who came to watch."

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce:

"I would say it was probably coming based on what we've had to cope with over the last few weeks and I think it told on us today, there's no doubt about that.

"I have to give West Brom a lot of credit - they were very good, particularly the front two."

Derby 1-2 Reading

Yakubu
Empics

Yakubu came off the bench to score his first goal for Reading and

secure an FA Cup fifth-round victory at Derby.

Derby manager Steve McClaren:

"We went for the win, we didn't want a replay. The quality of football, even with 10 men, was great and that was the important thing."

Reading boss Steve Clarke:

"We knew what we were getting with Yakubu . He's a goalscorer and when he goes through one against one you expect him to sure.

"He's very good at doing the business in that sort of situation and that makes him a great asset."

Blackburn 4-1 Stoke

Blackburn
AP

Josh King's hat-trick helped

Blackburn shock 10-man Premier League side Stoke and reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer:

"It was a hell of a cup tie. We have immense pride for the supporters and it is a terrific result for the club.

"We were extremely disappointed to concede a soft goal but the lads bounced back from that.

"We will enjoy tonight but I said to the players, we have to focus on Cardiff for our next game. We would like another home draw but we will take each game as it comes."

Stoke manager Mark Hughes:

"We were well beaten today, credit to Blackburn, they put the ball in good area and used the threats they had up front. We didn't deal with it all afternoon, we got our noses in front without really dictating Blackburn. We allowed them to get back into the game."

We are still waiting for further reaction from Selhurst Park - I shall bring you it all as we get it. But for now, here's a quick recap on the day's FA Cup headlines:

JavelBleach: Favourites? What odds would I get on the mighty, historic Preston North End right now? And on Tuesday?

Mo, Manchester: How are Manchester United favourites? Only thing that saved them from defeat against us was our finishing. Momentum and confidence goes a long way and I think we'll make the final now (scared about Arsenal though to be honest).

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers has to stop to take six photos with several people in the crowd and Crystal Palace employees on his way back into the bowels of Selhurst Park. The smile on his face is a clear message throughout. He wouldn't be drawn on whether his side are now favourites.

Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers on BT Sport: "After we scored I thought we were very good. We had 15 efforts on goal in the first half but we weren't aggressive enough.

"I wanted us to keep the width on the pitch, we changed it around at half-time and it worked well for us.

"Daniel Sturridge is a natural goalscorer. The worry is that his team-mates are joining in with his dancing!"

Latex Zebra: Liverpool favourites? With the current holders (who knocked a stronger Liverpool out last year) and Man Utd still in, no.

Fissuh H Kelelom: I think Manchester United are stronger favourites for the FA Cup than Liverpool. Man United v Liverpool final would be nice though...

Zac Quinn: Selhurst Park hoodoo overcome and now 90 minutes from Wembley, nicely done.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

BBC Radio 5 live at Selhurst Park

"Liverpool were very sensible in the last minutes. They were relatively comfortable. Simon Mignolet didn't have to pull them out of the fire with any great saves. I just feel Crystal Palace have been a little bit lightweight. They didn't produce many forceful moments of energy or passion, and Liverpool deserved the win. They were the better team overall, and it looks as though they will now have a great chance of a Wembley final."

THE LAST EIGHT

Here is who's left in the FA Cup:

West Brom

Reading

Blackburn Rovers

Liverpool

Aston Villa or Leicester

Bradford City or Sunderland

Arsenal or Middlesbrough

Preseton or Manchester United

FULL-TIME

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool are into the last eight, with a first win at Selhurst Park in 18 years.

Favourites for the Cup?

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

"You'll Never Walk Alone" rings out from the stands, Liverpool moments away from closing this one out after a fine second-half display. Crystal Palace will be very disappointed with their second 45 minutes.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

BBC Radio 5 live at Selhurst Park

"Emre Can disputed it but he was definitely holding for the free-kick. A poor effort from Dwight Gayle though. He has had to defend more than he would like to today, as a striker."

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Dwight Gayle takes it - he goes for goal and blasts it over! Head in hands from Gayle. A waste.

INJURY TIME

FIVE MINUTES added on...

Crystal Palace win a free-kick. Good spot on the left wing this. Got to be a good ball in...

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Here we go - into the last minute. Rickie Lambert wins a corner, Liverpool will keep it in the corner...

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Will we have more late drama from Dwight Gayle and co? Fraizer Campbell is close to meeting Joel Ward's cross from the right - but he can't get there.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

BBC Radio 5 live at Selhurst Park

"Liverpool are making Crystal Palace do all the running now. They are using the width of the pitch very well, forcing Palace to work hard to close them down. It's very hard work to have to chase the ball, especially at this stage of the game."

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

You're in! Jordan Henderson strips the ball from a dawdling Joe Ledley in side his own area, Henderson waits, he tries to pick out Mario Balotelli for a tap-in but Scott Dann is across to clear his lines.

That would have killed it.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

What they have, they hold. Liverpool hold it very nicely, but they are not being pressured particularly hard by a flat Crystal Palace. Dwight Gayle has been anonymous in this second half.

"What we have, we hold. That is Liverpool at the moment and I can fully understand that. If they get through this game they are only one match away from Wembley, and that's another thing for Brendan Rodgers to put on his CV. But Crystal Palace have only lost one of seven matches since Alan Pardew took over."

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Jordan Henderson gets through some yards in a game and here he is again, overlapping the overlap to pick the ball up on the right wing, he swings in a cracking early cross to but Julian Speroni is alive to it and beats it away from in front of Rickie Lambert.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge's night is done, he comes off to a few jeers as Rickie Lambert takes his place. The final change of the game sees Dejan Lovren on in place of Philippe Coutinho.

Not like for like. Very much not.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Palace could do with chucking on Shola Ameobi and/or Yaya Sanogo - but neither are on the bench tonight. In fact their last change sees Wilfried Zaha on in place of Yannick Bolasie.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge up front for England anyone? (see 53 mins)

Mark, London: Sturridge and Kane would be deadly, and a partnership for the long-term! Sturridge will stretch defences and Kane will have the extra space to do 'his thing'. Come on Roy, do the right thing!

Dan, Bedford: Kane's strength over Sturridge is his ability to use two feet, and he brings other players into the game in a way that only Wayne Rooney seems to do. Sturridge is a great finisher in his own right but his inability to be flexible in his shooting will limit him progressing any further.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

There is a disappointing lack of urgency about this game in the closing stages. What's the opposite of 'a proper cup tie?'

A fraudulent cup tie? Liverpool just look comfortable and Palace look content enough to go along with it. Can they raise it?

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager David Pleat

BBC Radio 5 live at Selhurst Park

"Liverpool are having a spell of controlled possession which is wise. It just eases the pressure. If the away side are disciplined from here they should be able to get through this game."

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno dance

That celebratory dance. Yes. I didn't want to mention it, but Daniel Sturridge performed it in duet with Alberto Moreno after his goal.

What's wrong with a handshake and a swift walk back to the centre-circle?

"I do like Daniel Sturridge. I like his confidence, his movement, his finishing, his calmness. I could, however, live without the dance."

PENALTY APPEAL

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

It has been an afternoon of handball appeals, they have come thick and fast, and here's another as Alberto Moreno's arm is hit by the bouncing ball. Again, there is nothing given. Alan Pardew disagrees with that call. In the strongest terms.
