Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing is backing Everton to win their FA Cup replay at Sunderland.

Spearing wants the Blues in the semifinals next month at Wembley.

"I'd like to face the blue side of Merseyside," Spearing told the Liverpool Echo. "For me personally it would be extra special if it was the Blues. For both clubs it would be massive to get the supporters down there.

"But whoever gets through, it's going to be a difficult game. This club wants to be playing at Wembley as often as it possibly can. We want to win and get back there again for the final."
