Jamie Carragher is hoping to make his first Liverpool appearance at Wembley in this season's Carling Cup after defeating Chelsea to reach the last four.

Carragher's first appearances for a month coincided with a Reds clean-sheet, as goals from Maxi Rodriguez and Martin Kelly secured the club's passage.

Liverpool themselves are yet to play at the new Wembley and Carragher is demanding the club reach the showcase final.

"I've played at Wembley once or twice for England but I've never done it for Liverpool," he said. "I'd love to do that but when we have got to cup finals they have been in Cardiff so I've never been there with Liverpool.

"There is a still a semi-final to play over two legs and there are some massive sides in there so it is going to be very tough. We'll take the semi-final very seriously."

Kelly's performances for the England Under-21's, which has seen him grab three goals for his country, means he now features as Glen Johnson's understudy, a position Carragher eventually sees him filling in the long term.

"Kelly is a young lad coming through, he's still learning the game. He can learn off Glen Johnson, England's right-back," he added.

"But hopefully in the future Martin Kelly will be in that position himself and he showed that tonight."
