David Moyes insists FA Cup semi-final places are on the line and that his players will be playing for their places at Carrow Road tomorrow, and again at Goodison Park on Monday.

Moyes: “To win the next game is the most important one, it always is. They are playing for their places just now, whether it be a semi-final or a league game, they have to play for their places to be in the team and it has been like that all year. The important thing is to keep the momentum going into the Norwich game and we did that with a win against West Brom. We have two difficult games Saturday and Monday and if we want to keep ourselves in a decent league position we are going to have to try to pick up some points. It has probably been the best run we’ve had this season but we want to keep it going.

“We were in a really tough schedule in March but we feel much better after a bit of rest. The players have confidence because they know they are playing much better. I think the whole group are in a better position than they were over the first couple of months.”
