Roy Hodgson

"It's not easy to keep minds off the cup (final) because for our level it's a unique position for a lot of the players. Some of us who have been here before know how to treat it, but for others it's difficult.

"The focus has definitely slipped in the league and you can't argue with that. I've got to put a team out that's focused to win, and that's important."

Mile Jedinak

"We still have a couple of games to go and won’t allow ourselves to get too carried away regarding the final until the Premier League is done.

"They’re big games and starting against Stoke City we want to get some momentum going into the final, but more importantly we want to put on a performance in front of our own fans in the last home game of the season. It’s always nice to win the final game of the campaign in front of our own fans and give you something to enjoy going into the summer."

Mark Hughes

"It is a difficult one for Crystal Palace, I am sure their focus will be looking ahead to the cup final but I think I am right in saying it is their last home game before the end of the season so that will always put an edge to your game.

"(The performance will be for) the supporters. Not all of them will be able to go to the cup final so they will want to be able to put in a good performance, so we have to be ready for that."
