“After a talking to at half-time, the players showed what they were really about in the second half. Assistant boss Steve Round did a great job on them during the break. We just needed them livened up,” says David Moyes on his team’s comeback after being down 1-0. [BBC Sport]
“It doesn’t mean anything to take Everton to Wembley in a semi-final. I am delighted to take Everton to a semi-final but what matters is to take Everton to the final and to win a trophy. There is a long way to go,” says David Moyes. [The Guardian]
“We’ll get United. From the moment we beat Liverpool our fans have been saying it is our year. We’ll enjoy the semis but we want to win it. It has been too long since this club won silverware. Now we’ve got to step up and be men,” says Phil Neville. [The Guardian]
