Liverpool striker Andy Carroll feels their defeat to Bolton Wanderers has now been forgotten.

Carroll believes the last few days have been the perfect tonic after a frustrating defeat at Bolton just over a week ago which prompted an angry response from Kenny Dalglish.

The striker told liverpoolfc.tv: "It was disappointing against Bolton and we needed to put that right.

"We did that against Man City and then with Man Utd coming here all the lads were buzzing and I think it showed that everyone was up for it. I've never played in a Cup final before so going to Wembley with Liverpool will be great.

"To get to Wembley in midweek and then beat Man Utd, it's a great feeling. We've had two great wins back to back and now we need to carry that form on to Wolves on Tuesday night and then to Tottenham next week."
