Crystal Palace draw Watford in FA Cup semi-finals

Crystal Palace will play Watford in the semi-finals of the FA Cup – the clash is a repeat of the Championship play-off final of 2013, which Palace won with a Kevin Phillips penalty.

Watford were last in the final in 1984, where they were beaten by Everton, while Palace lost the 1990 final to Manchester United after a replay.

Everton will face the winners of the replay between Manchester United and West Ham in the second semi-final. The Hammers, cup winners in 1980, drew 1-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The ties will be played at Wembley over the weekend of April 23 and 24.

West Brom's Chris Brunt was involved in a heated exchange with his own fans after appearing to be hit by an object following their 3-1 defeat at Reading.

Brunt had gone over to applaud the visiting fans following their FA Cup fifth round exit but went down clutching his face as he approached the away end.

The Northern Ireland international then confronted a group of Albion fans before being led away by captain Darren Fletcher.

In comments reported by BBC Sport, the 31-year-old said: "I was walking towards our supporters at the end, and they thought it was okay to throw a coin at their own players. I'm disgusted.

"If they want to come forward and say they don't like what they've seen then that's fine. Fans are frustrated we were 1-0 up and lost.

"They paid a lot of money to come, but a small minority spoilt it. There were young kids there. I was absolutely disgusted and ashamed."

Chelsea boss Hiddink: You must play with joy

Guus Hiddink has encouraged players to rediscover their love for the game and play in the moment since taking caretaker charge of Chelsea.

Hiddink suffered his first loss of his second spell last Tuesday at Paris St Germain and goes into Sunday's FA Cup fifth round tie against Manchester City seeking a victory to extend his 100 per cent record in the competition.

The Dutchman won the trophy in 2009 after Chelsea beat Watford, Coventry, Arsenal and, at Wembley in the final, Everton.

"Deep down you must play with joy," Hiddink said.

"If you play with joy then the best comes out of a player. Joy is not always laughing. It is enjoying being a professional, enjoying training and doing your job, which is sometimes tough.

"But if you enjoy it and if you do it, not all day smiling, but you feel a little bit natural, then I think the performance is unconditioned."
