Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is happy to face Everton in the FA Cup semis.

Skrtel admits he is relishing the prospect of a return to Wembley for a mouth-watering semi-final which has divided loyalties on Merseyside.

"I wanted it to be Everton," Skrtel told LFC magazine. "I've played in lots of derbies now and having a Merseyside derby at Wembley will be brilliant.

"I've played in some great stadiums like the Santiago Bernabeu, the Emirates, Wembley. I would probably go for Wembley as my favourite, it's a special place for me."
