  • [goalsonsunday] On Goals on Sunday, Roberto Martinez talks about swapping  the Wigan job for Everton last summer:
    It was a difficult decision. When you want to impose a philosophy for the football club for the future, the relationship with the chairman is very important. I had offers to leave in my first season at Wigan, but you know when is the right time to move on. Mr Whelan was understanding and said: 'If you have to go, Everton is the club.' He runs the club similar to Mr Kenwright.

  • [goalsonsunday] Roberto Martinez tells Ben Shephard how he has managed to blend the loan players into his side at Everton:
    The loan system is part of assembling a squad. We've got seven players out on loan. The young players need experience. The big difference in when you bring a loan player in, is making them feel ready to be himself. You do that by having established figures in the dressing room. What is important for the football club is that the senior players set the standard.

  • [goalsonsunday] Asked about the future of loan striker Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Martinez played down the possibility of extending his deal from Chelsea:
    I would never be disrespectful to the parent club. It is impossible for me to say. We don't know what Chelsea will want to do. We're in permanent contact with Chelsea. We want them to be happy with the progress of Romelu but at the same time, we want Romelu to do well and create memories at Everton. People think too far ahead.

  • [manchesterunited] Phil Jones believes he and Chris Smalling can form a new partnership at the heart of Manchester United's defence next season, with captain Nemanja Vidic ready to exit Old Trafford for Inter Milan and Rio Ferdinand's contract expiring at the end of the campaign:
    I've played with Chris for three or four years in the England Under-21s and also United, and we have a really good understanding. We complement each other well and when you look at other central-defender partnerships and how they grow and build, they get better by playing together.

    With the situation the football club's in, together with this anniversary, it should make for a special atmosphere. My great nights here were European nights in the Champions League and UEFA Cup, but we were always chasing someone in the league. Everywhere you go, everyone's talking about it. It was always the league that was seen as the bread and butter for Liverpool.

    4/13/2014 11:42:54 AM
    Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara gives his thoughts on how today's game will pan out.

    Aberdeen will be favourites with them having already won the Scottish League Cup.  
    4/13/2014 11:45:49 AM
    Right then, let's pick the bones out of that team news. The big story is that City skipper Vincent Kompany is fit enough to take his place in a side featuring just one change from last week. Gael Clichy comes in for Ales Kolarov at left-back, but Sergio Aguero is on the substitute's bench on his comeback from injury. Liverpool are unchanged, which means Mamadou Sakho keeps his place at centre-half
    4/13/2014 11:46:30 AM
    Away we go at Ibrox.
    4/13/2014 11:47:24 AM
    CHANCE! First of the game,as Robson's poor free-kick comes back off the wall, allowing the Aberdeen midfielder to let fly with a half-volley that flies just past the post.
    4/13/2014 11:53:34 AM
    Liverpool's team coach, incidentally, was ushered towards Anfield by supporters lining the side of the road in what is fast become a hallmark of their home games on the title run-in. those supporters have more than football on their minds today as the Hillsborough victims are remembered 25 years on. Tributes have been paid all week, and Everton manager Roberto Martinez has been adding his own on Goals on Sunday...

    Bit of a  scrappy start to the game here, with blustery conditions not helping the players any.

  • [goal]GOAL! ST JOHNSTONE 0-1 ABERDEEN (McGinn)
    Robson gets past his marker and lays the ball off to McGinn, who calmly slots the ball past Saints keeper Mannus for the opening goal.
    4/13/2014 12:01:59 PM
    We've been busy grabbing players for a bit of pre-match chat on the way in at Anfield, and both goalkeepers were happy to oblige. Let's hear from Simon Mignolet for starters...

    Sterling's pace is wreaking pure havoc, and this time he bends in a ball from the right which arcs perfectly into Sturridge's near-post run. Sturridge opens up his body and looks certain to side-foot Liverpool's second, but the ball slices off his boot and wide of Hart's far post
    4/13/2014 12:53:39 PM
    McGinn creates some space for a shot but he lifts his effort well over the crossbar.
    4/13/2014 12:54:23 PM
    Just before that Sturridge miss Toure appeared to injure himself attempting a long-range curler. City's top scorer is lumbering around a bit in midfield just now - one to keep an eye on

  • LIVERPOOL 1-0 MAN CITY SUB![manchestercity]
    It's Toure's groin that's bothering him, and it's bad enough that he won't continue here. Not what City need - at all. Off he hobbles, and it's Javi Garcia who trots on to take his place in midfield
