Liverpool's Spearing hoping for 'special' Merseyside FA Cup semi-final

Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing is eyeing an all-Merseyside semi-final in the FA Cup this season.

The Reds await the winner of the Sunderland v Everton replay after the beat Stoke City 2-1 yesterday and Spearing admits it would be a special occasion if the Toffees got through to Wembley to compete in the final four.

"For the club and for Merseyside it (a Liverpool - Everton semi-final) would be special," Spearing told the club's official website.

"For both clubs it would be massive to get the supporters down there for the semi-final.

"It's every player's dream to go and play at Wembley and it will be extra special if it's an all-Merseyside semi-final. We've got all the confidence to go there and try and get through to the final.

"We've got a big game on Wednesday (in the league against QPR) which we'll need to compete in and get three points, but when it (the semi-final) comes about we'll be looking forward to it."
