Key quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: “Everton has a style of play, they’re an attacking team under Roberto. They have players in a very good moment so we must be very careful with their counter attack. We must try to score more goals and do more damage to their defence but also be a balanced team.”

Raheem Sterling: "I’ve never come up against the same team as often as this and it is a pretty quick turnaround but I didn’t play in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg last week so I obviously hope to be involved this time.”

Roberto Martinez: ""Romelu trained well yesterday. He is available, his ankle feels well and he is clear to play tomorrow. It's great news."

Muhamed Besic: "“We have now a bit more confidence, we will play with more confidence, the belief is always there. When you see the games, we always dominate but we make some small mistakes. But it’s the Premier League and you have to be perfect to win games.”
