Roberto Martinez admitted he was embarrassed by Evertons horrible showing as they went down 4-0 at Liverpool. The scoreline barely reflected the pattern of the game as Liverpool had 41 shots to their rivals three and scored twice either side of Ramiro Funes Moris red card for a foul on Divock Origi.Origi and Mamadou Sakho netted headers in the two minutes before half-time, and there were further goals for Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho. Martinez is yet to win a derby, and the manner of the defeat will do nothing to appease his critics among the Everton support ahead of Saturdays FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United. Martinez called Evertons derby performance an embarrassment The Spaniard made no attempt to sugar-coat the evenings events afterwards, telling Sky Sports: It was a horrible, horrible showing.It started with the best intentions but then very close to half-time (there was) an inability to do the basics right and do the things you have to do in any performance.Martinez was forced to replace Gareth Barry at the break and later lost John Stones to illness moments after the defenders poor pass had contributed to Liverpools third goal.Gareth Barry picking up an injury at half-time, John Stones feeling ill and having stomach cramps. The whole thing is one after the other, a chain reaction of a disastrous group of actions that made it an impossible experience, Martinez said. Ramiro Funes Mori was shown a straight red for a foul on Divock Origi And on Funes Moris dismissal, which led to Origi leaving the field on a stretcher, he said: Its a challenge that he should be avoiding. Youre getting carried away with the derby.Maybe its the first time Ramiro is involved in this sort of game and he got carried away. I can understand the red card, maybe a yellow card I could understand as well. But top and bottom, we didnt cope with the emotions of the occasion and we didnt control ourselves well enough.Its such a huge game for us it doesnt need much motivation. Obviously were still hurting and we will be hurting for a long, long time but obviously we need to react really, really quickly and prepare for the game on Saturday because its the only way we can get rid of this feeling. Talking points Analysis of a one-sided Merseyside derby Its a feeling of embarrassment. We know we shouldnt put a showing on like this. I know there are sometimes things in football that you cant control, a chain of events that go against you but we brought that onto ourselves. Martinez is facing a defensive crisis for the semi-final, with Phil Jagielka a doubt, Funes Mori banned and Stones now also a concern.He said: Muhamed Besic is someone that can play in that role but to lose John Stones… well have to assess him.On his own future he said: Its not about my job. All I want is to bring success to Everton and its about the players wanting to be themselves, coping with the occasion.We know were one step away from the (FA Cup) final and thats the only thing that can bring satisfaction to our fans. Thats the only thing were going to concentrate on. Also See: Liverpool thump sorry Everton Origi injured in Liverpool win Klopp: Were in a good place Moyes: Everton were terrible Babe Ruth Jersey. Blackhawks RW Patrick Kane came up big when it counted, tallying two goals and an assist. He scored the game-winner with 4:45 remaining in the third period, stopping on the right hashmarks, carrying the puck up through the top of the Kings zone, then firing a wrist shot from the top of the circles past Jonathan Quick, who had his view obstructed by Andrew Shaw.

Feilhaber scored from 30 yards in the 33rd minute to put Kansas City up 1-0.
