Everton moved up to seventh in the Premier League after beating Crystal Palace 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday. Making it their fifth win in the eight league games since Carlo Ancelotti took over as manager and this means that they now have a place in next season’s UEFA Europa League.

Watford have been making progress under Nigel Pearson. A 1-1 draw away to Brighton & Hove Albion yielded them a point, and they remain in the bottom three.

Ancelotti has overseen five wins, two draws and just one defeat since he took over. Richarlison scored for the third time in five matches when he broke from his own half to meet a flick-on from Calvert-Lewin. Calvert-Lewin has 11 top-flight goals for the season.

Manchester City’s Premier League fixture against West Ham was postponed due to “extreme weather conditions,” which also has seen the Women’s Six Nations tie between Scotland and England, scheduled to take place in Glasgow, called off with 70mph winds expected to hit the city.

All six Women’s Super League fixtures have been postponed, including the north London and Merseyside derbies, as have Women’s Championship games at Charlton, Coventry, Crystal Palace and Lewes.
