Jordan Henderson is determined to ensure Liverpool end their extended wait for a Wembley final by triumphing over Manchester City in the Carling Cup.

The Reds booked their place in the final four of the competition with an impressive win against Chelsea on Tuesday evening.

Maxi and Martin Kelly netted the goals, after Andy Carroll had missed a penalty, as Kenny Dalglish's side triumphed 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

City now await Liverpool in a two-legged semi-final, which will begin in early January, and a place in the final of the Carling Cup will be up for grabs.

Liverpool have not been to the north west London arena since 1996, although they did make five domestic finals between 2001 and 2006.

But these were held at the Millennium Stadium, and Henderson is desperate for Liverpool to life some silverware in the rebuilt home of football.

"For such a big club like Liverpool, you would have thought we would have been to Wembley since [1996]," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"I’m sure it won’t be long before we are at Wembley again.

"We’ve got a two-legged tie to come, and it won’t be easy, but if we put the right attitude and commitment into the game then I’m sure we can come away with good results."
