Kolbeinn Sigthorsson celebrates his goal for Ajax

Ajax cruised into the semi-finals of the KNVB Beker on Thursday evening with a 4-0 win at Vitesse Arnhem.

Danny Hoesen set the Eredivisie champions on their way with a seventh-minute opener and Lasse Schone gave the visitors breathing space just before the hour.

Kolbeinn Sigthorsson was then introduced as a 75th-minute substitute, in place of the injured Siem de Jong, and notched a late brace to add gloss to the scoreline.

His first came in the 81st minute when he followed up after Schone had missed a penalty, and the second arrived in the form of a header five minutes later.

The result saw the Amsterdammers avenge Sunday's 3-2 Eredivisie loss against Fred Rutten's side, which ended their eight-match unbeaten run.

Frank de Boer's team joined AZ Alkmaar, PEC Zwolle and holders PSV Eindhoven in the last four.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
