Liverpool and Everton go head to head in an all-Merseyside FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday, with a spot in the final up for grabs.

Liverpool and Everton will lock horns for the third Merseyside derby this season as both teams fight for a spot in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The Premier League sides travel down to London for Saturday's clash, with Reds boss Kenny Dalglish expected to make changes to his side that defeated Blackburn Rovers 3-2 at Ewood Park on Tuesday.

Third-choice goalkeeper Brad Jones is likely to start due to suspensions being served to both Pepe Reina and Alexander Doni. The Scottish boss is also likely to welcome back Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez to the side after they missed out in mid-week.

Andy Carroll may warrant a place in Liverpool's starting XI after finding the back of the net for the first time since December in the league on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, David Moyes should bring Tim Cahill back into the fold after the Australian was rested for the Toffees' 4-0 win over Sunderland on Monday.

Darron Gibson and Marouane Fellaini are likely to line the midfield with Nikica Jelavic leading from the front.

Current form:

Liverpool: WLLLDW
Everton: LWWWDW

Possbile lineups:

Liverpool: Jones; Enrique, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson; Downing, Spearing, Gerrard, Kuyt; Carroll, Suarez

Everton: Howard; Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Baines; Osman, Gibson, Fellaini, Peinaar; Cahill; Jelavic

Sports Mole says: 2-1
