Liverpool's Skrtel can't wait for Merseyside FA Cup derby at 'special' Wembley

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is jumping out of his skin ahead of the FA Cup semi-final against Everton.

The Reds take on their Merseyside rivals at Wembley Stadium in the final four of the competition on April 14 and the Slovakian is thoroughly excited about the challenge ahead at a 'special' venue.

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

"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."
