Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan has set his sights on a Wembley visit with the Reds this season, and is not ruling out the possibility of two final appearances.

Kenny Dalglish's side face Manchester City next week in the first leg of their Carling Cup final with the hope they can book a place at the new Wembley for the first time.

But, before then, the visit of Oldham in the third round of the FA Cup awaits, and how the Anfield faithful would love for the Reds to win the famous competition this term for an eighth time.

Flanagan certainly believes it possible to lift a domestic cup double, and is desperate to make a visit to the home of football, and not just as a spectator.

"It's a great ground, massive," he told LFC Magazine. "Both times I've been the atmosphere was really good.

"It would be great to get there this season in the Carling Cup or the FA Cup, or both. That would be a dream come true."

Flanagan has seen his first-team opportunities limited this season, but is surely in contention to face Oldham this week.

And it is a competition that holds particularly fond memories for the 19-year-old full-back.

"Michael Owen scoring two against Arsenal in 2001 is a great memory for me," he added.

"It was a brilliant day, I remember celebrating when he scored the second goal with his left foot.

"Arsenal absolutely battered us but Owen was a genius. I was made up at the end."
