Southgate: "It's difficult even to think about the cup after what happened last night. There are so many things we have to try to put right.

"Obviously Everton is a game to look forward to, but everybody's down after the defeat.

"League points are what we need. They are the priority and they are our bread and butter.

"But our next game is in the cup and, if we want to achieve something for ourselves there, then we will have to be a lot more professional than last night.
"We have to get the Tottenham defeat out of our systems as quickly as possible, but at the same time we have to show that we can respond to the defeat.

"We have to be ready for Sunday and quite clearly there's a collective responsibility for the team as a whole to do much, much better if we are to have a chance of continuing our cup run."



Follow the M62 until you reach the end of the motorway (beware of a 50mph speed camera about a quarter of a `mile from the end of the motorway, notorious for tickets). Then follow the A5056 towards Liverpool. After three miles, turn left at the traffic lights into Utting Avenue (there is a McDonalds on the corner of this junction). Proceed for one mile and then turn right at the corner of Stanley Park into Priory Road. Goodison is at the end of the road.


Kirkdale station is the closest to the ground (just under a mile away) and can be reached by first getting a train from Liverpool Lime Street to Liverpool Central and then changing there for Kirkdale. Personally, I'd rather save all the bother and get a taxi from Lime Street. It's three miles away, but I've walked it back to the station before and it is all downhill.

The Anfield Hotel up Walton Lane does not get as full as others on match days, probably because of the name and is probably boycotted by Everton fans. The Hermitage is close to Goodison on Queens Drive, and The Spellow, The Blue House and Wilnslow Hotel are canny enough. The only one that isn't too friendly is the Royal Oak.
