Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish told ITV: "The people on Merseyside have two clubs they can be proud of. They [Everton] have a difficult game going to Sunderland to try and get themselves through; we are there and whoever you were going to get was going to be really difficult.

"If it's a Merseyside one fine, but it's a difficult hurdle for Everton to go to Sunderland."

The semi-final ties will be played at Wembley over the weekend of April 14 and 15.
