Steven Gerrard's hat-trick settled the last Merseyside derby but Everton's recent form suggests this is going to be a much closer affair...

This will be the fifth FA Cup semi-final between these two Merseyside giants. Everton won the first (in 1906), but Liverpool have since progressed through the last three. To qualify

No other fixture in FA Cup history has seen more than three semi-finals.

On all three occasions Liverpool have beaten Everton in an FA Cup semi-final, the Reds have gone on to lose the final. FA Cup winner

Only Manchester City (seven) have played more FA Cup semi-finals since they were last eliminated at this stage than the Toffees (six). Match odds

Only three teams have previously won the League Cup and FA Cup in the same season: Arsenal in 92/93, Liverpool in 00/01 and Chelsea in 06/07. FA Cup winner

With a victory against Everton, Liverpool would be take one step closer to becoming the first team to achieve two FA/League Cup doubles, after they won both cups in 2000/01. FA Cup winner
