Seamus Coleman started for Everton with James McCarthy unused on the bench for their scoreless draw with hosts Crystal Palace in the Premier League this Saturday afternoon. Relegated Fulham introduced Cyrus Christie from the bench after just twenty eight minutes as they scored the only goal to defeat Cardiff City at Craven Cottage where Greg Cunningham and goalkeeper Brian Murphy were unused on the ‘Bluebirds’ bench. Midweek seven second goal scorer Shane Long recovered from his injury and started and scored for Southampton after twelve minutes of their three all draw with South Coast rivals AFC Bournemouth at St Mary’s Stadium. Matt Doherty started for Wolverhampton Wanderers who gained a little degree of revenge for their FA Cup semi-final defeat when they defeated Watford by two goals to one at Vicarage Road. In the late kick-off, Chris Hughton‘s Brighton & Hove Albion, with Shane Duffy in central defence, faced a nerve wracking encounter with visitors Newcastle United which ended in a one all draw. The ‘Seagulls’ are four points clear of Cardiff City with just two matches remaining for both sides.
