Liverpool and Everton are all set to fight it out for a place in the FA Cup final this weekend when the two Merseyside rivals meet at Wembley on Saturday lunch-time, as David Moyes’ side look the value bet at 11/5 with Paddy Power.
Acting as one half of the most exciting FA Cup semi-final line-up for many years, this should be a passionate and entertaining contest between two teams that will be desperate to get one over each other.
Looking at Liverpool to begin with, it is fair to say that they were relieved to get a 3-2 victory over Blackburn during the week. It was far from a vintage performance, but the three points has given them some confidence going into Saturday’s match.
Kenny Dalglish’s men have been in horrific form after all and to go into this semi-final on the back of another defeat would have been far from ideal preparation. Instead, they grabbed a last-minute winner and now have some momentum.
Liverpool have already tasted success at Wembley this year too of course, winning the Carling Cup back in February. This means that they should feel comfortable at the home of English football.

As for Everton, they are the form team going into this weekend. David Moyes’ men have won four of their last five games across all competitions and in Nikica Jelavic, they have a striker that looks to have adapted to English football extremely well.
The Toffees are above Liverpool in the league at the moment too and considering the differing spending power of these two, this is quite the achievement. They would love to rub salt into Liverpool’s wounds with victory on Saturday.
When these two have met in the league this season, Liverpool have emerged victorious on both occasions. They are favourites to do so in this one too despite Everton’s more impressive form.
Everton are more than capable of turning on the style though and this should be a fascinating contest from start to finish. It gets underway at 12.30pm on Saturday afternoon.
