After being forced to watch Everton's run to the FA Cup final in 2009 from the sidelines, there are few players more eager to be involved in Saturday's semi-final against Liverpool than striker Victor Anichebe.

The 23-year-old missed almost a year of football after suffering a serious knee injury in a tackle by Kevin Nolan against Newcastle that February, including the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Wembley.

Looking ahead to Saturday, he said: "Everyone wants to be part of Wembley, whether you're playing, on the bench or just cheering on the squad. We had a good squad who missed out last time with injuries."
