Everton boss David Moyes insisted Liverpool will go into next month's FA Cup semi-final showdown between the derby rivals as favourites.

The Toffees booked a dream trip to Wembley to face their city rivals with a superb 2-0 quarter-final replay victory at Sunderland despite arriving at the Stadium of Light less than an hour before kick-off because of traffic congestion.

However, Moyes was adamant the men from Anfield would be expected to emerge triumphant on April 14 after winning both Barclays Premier League clashes earlier this season. He said: "Liverpool will be favourites. They have beaten us twice this year, haven't they?"
