Liverpool defender Carragher admits "relief" after seeing off Everton

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admitted relief knocking off Everton in yesterday's FA Cup semifinal.

Reds struggled for much of the game, but came out on top 2-1.

Asked to sum up how he felt beating our Mersey rivals, Carragher said: "It's relief, really. Losing to Everton would have been an absolute nightmare.

"I was involved in their goal to start with and if we'd lost that 1-0 I don't think I'd ever have recovered, to be honest.

"We showed what Liverpool are about. David Moyes said the whole country was with them but we're a special club with special fans. Not many teams could come back.

"We did it before in 1986 when Everton were 1-0 up at half-time and we've done it again. We've got that ability to come back.

"Liverpool are expected to be in finals and win trophies. We've won one, let's win another."
