Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton will meet in the semi-final of this season's FA Cup, should the latter overcome Sunderland in their last eight replay.

Everton drew 1-1 with the Black Cats at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon after Tim Cahill had cancelled out a goal from Phil Bardsley.

David Moyes will now take his side to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday March 27, knowing that victory will set up a clash at Wembley with Kenny Dalglish's Reds.

The other semi-final will be contested by Chelsea and either Tottenham or Bolton, with the quarter-final between the latter pair abandoned on Saturday afternoon.

Referee Howard Webb took the decision to call of the clash following horrific scenes at White Hart Lane in which Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are into the last four of the competition following a 5-2 victory against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

Fernando Torres was the hero for the Blues - ending his 24-game goal drought by netting a brace, while also providing a pair of assists.

The semi-final ties will both take place at Wembley on the weekend of April 14 and 15.
