Bottom half Premier League teams Watford and Crystal Palace will contest the other FA Cup semifinal on Sunday.

Louis Van Gaal‘s Manchester United are the favorites to advance, with the Red Devils winning six of their last eight games and a domestic trophy coupled with a top four finish could see the Dutchman stay in charge next season at Old Trafford. Well, maybe…

As for Roberto Martinez’s tenure at Everton, the Spaniard is coming under increasing pressure from fans with the Toffees not winning any of their last seven games in the PL and they suffered an embarrassing 4-0 Merseyside derby defeat at Everton in midweek.
