Liverpool are in the semi-final of the FA Cup following a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at Anfield.

Luis Suarez had given Kenny Dalglish's side the lead after 22 minutes, but Peter Crouch responded almost instantly for the Potters.

Stewart Downing provided the winner shortly after the hour to ensure the Reds march to Wembley once again this term.

Liverpool registered the first goal of the afternoon after their first really purposeful attack saw Suarez find the net following a pass from Maxi Rodriguez.

Stoke, though, were level little over three minutes later when from Anfield favourite Crouch heading in a corner from Matthew Etherington.

Suarez wasted a golden opportunity to head Liverpool in front in the second-half, but was unable to provide the decisive touch to a fine free-kick from Downing.

The latter, though, did ensure the home side took the lead when he netted with a lovely effort - cutting in from the right flank and burying a shot past Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen.

Despite a season in which they have faltered in the league, Liverpool have been excellent in knockout football, and will visit Wembley for the second time this season when they play their semi-final.

The Reds have already triumphed once at the home of football this season, beating Cardiff in the final of the Carling Cup after a penalty shootout.
