Everton's Carsley: Villa clash like Cup final

Everton midfielder Lee Carsley admits today's clash with Aston Villa is a cup final with both clubs chasing a UEFA Cup spot.

"It is a cup final of sorts," Carsley said. "We have been saying that for a number of weeks and they are all massive games now.

"But these games are enjoyable. We are down to the nitty-gritty now with three games to go. We are all geared towards winning the last three games and that is our plan.

"I keep reading that Villa are looking forward to coming to Goodison Park. But I'm not sure about that.

"If they are being honest, they aren't looking forward to coming here at all. Not many teams win here, not many teams even do well at Goodison. So I can't wait for Villa to arrive."
