Premier League - Managers: Ancelotti still in dark
Chelsea 2-2 Newcastle United
Carlo Ancelotti on his future: "I don't know what will happen. We have to wait just one week. A week is not a long period. You are asking me a question I'm not able to answer. You have to propose this question to the club, not myself. I cannot give an answer. It is the club that has to take a decision and judge my job. If my job was good, I will stay. If they think it was not good, I will have to go. In my opinion, sometimes I did a good job, sometimes I could do better."
Alan Pardew: "It was one of the most enjoyable goals I can think of. When you get a performance and young players entering the field of play, at this club, it gives them a great start ... I'm a big fan of Didier (Drogba)'s. I don't think I'll entice him to the north-east. I think it's a bit cold for Didier at this stage of his career. Foreign players come to these shores and some set the example for others to follow. He's done that at Chelsea, and he'll probably continue to do that for one or two years still."
Wigan Athletic 3-2 West Ham
Roberto Martinez: "It's impossible to describe it. It was probably the worst-case scenario at half-time against a West Ham side who were playing well and deserved to be in front, and then we had that reaction from a group of men with huge responsibility in their profession. All the hard work through the 10 months came out. I could not be prouder of them. In football you say that if you work hard you get the rewards but it's difficult to keep hearing the same things and not getting the feeling of joy from winning. Today we had that and we deserved that."
Avram Grant has been sacked
Liverpool 0-2 Tottenham
Kenny Dalglish on referee Howard Webb: "I'm not here to sponsor the FA. It is unhelpful to everyone that we cannot express our true thoughts and it is even more disappointing that the officials get away scot-free without having to come in and explain their decisions. I think it is safer for me to leave it at that. We cannot legislate for refereeing mistakes but we could have been a greater help to ourselves if we had started the game better."
Harry Redknapp: "It was a big win for us. We had to win today to try to finish above Liverpool and we have given ourselves a chance. We now have a tough game against Birmingham, who need a result after today. We are not fighting for the Europa League, we are fighting to finish fifth. You want to win every game and finish as high as you can, that is your pride. It is not ideal playing Thursday and every Sunday (in the Europa League) is not what you want but we are there [at the moment]."
Birmingham City 0-2 Fulham
Alex McLeish: "Maybe mentally since the Carling Cup final, it took its toll for a while. Then we picked ourselves up for while with a couple of great victories against Sunderland and Bolton back to back. We got a draw with Wolves with 10 men which was one of those magnificent spirited performances. But here we seemed short in terms of legs and presence as well. I think the suspensions and injuries has caught up with us a wee bit. But once we lick our wounds over the next couple of days, we will be bang at it. We've got to believe and I've been in situations before where it's looked impossible and it's worked and happened for us."
Mark Hughes: "I was pleased to get the reaction I got (after losing 5-2 to Liverpool). I didn't doubt the players in fairness. We found ourselves on Monday where we were 3-0 down and had to chase the game against a good side and they picked us off. This was about showing we hadn't switched off for the end of the season. We've got targets we set ourselves and we intend to reach them. We were fully focused and I think you can see that from the way we approached the game and we were able to get another away win which have been hard to come by."
Arsene Wenger on Arsenal's 'lap of appreciation': "It was our job to thank the fans and you never have to be embarrassed when you do your job. It was not a tour of glory, of course, but I think, no matter what happens, you have to respect your fans for turning up for the whole season. You have to accept that (some fans left early) and you have to thank those who are still in the stand. What is important is that this club has values and respects those values. We are in a job where you have to please people and if they are not happy, we have to accept that."
Gary McAllister: "You have to be happy with everything. It has been a good day, with a great performance and result. There has not been a great deal to shout about, but the journey home will be sweet and we appreciate the support because it is not been a great year but they stuck by us. Darren (Bent) has been class since the first minute he arrived and has been excellent around the place. People raised eyebrows at the £18million fee at the start of the transfer window, but by the end of the month when there was a few gone for £50m and £35m, I think he is looking at not a bad buy."
