Jay Spearing is hoping for a Merseyside derby against Everton in their FA Cup, after Liverpool were drawn against the winners of the quarter-final between their Merseyside rivals or Sunderland for the semi-final.
The Reds progressed at the first time of asking by beating Stoke 2-1 on Sunday, thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing.
Speaking about the Liverpool’s progress in the competition, the midfielder told the club’s official website: "It's a massive confidence boost for myself and for the team too.
"We've been there once and won, so there's no reason we can't go there with plenty of confidence and hopefully get to the final.
"For the club and for Merseyside it [a Liverpool versus Everton semi-final] would be special. For both clubs it would be massive to get the supporters down there for the semi-final.
"It's every player's dream to go and play at Wembley and it will be extra special if it's an all-Merseyside semi-final."
The 23-year-old maintained however that the focus is on the next league game away against QPR: "We've got a big game on Wednesday which we'll need to compete in and get three points.
"It's not a nice place to go. It can be a hostile atmosphere and we've got to go and show we can play our football, get three points and start climbing up that table."
"We went away to Sunderland a week ago and we were not very happy with our performance at all - but then on Tuesday against Everton at home we were very happy.”
Spearing went on to praise the team’s effort at Anfield against the Potters on Sunday.
He continued: "I think we deserved to win. At times we got the ball down and played our football, which we know we can do, and caused them a lot of problems.
"We knew it was going to be a physical game against them, so we had to compete as much as we could and we done that throughout the full 90 minutes."
"I think we battled well all the way through the game. We had to pick up second balls, which was a big part of the game today, and we also played some good football at times.
He reserved special praise for Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing for their goals, commenting: "Whenever Luis is on the ball, you know he is going to cause problems to any team - and it was nice for Stewie to get on the scoresheet.”
Of his own performance, he added: "I was very pleased. Every game gives me a lot more confidence. All I can do now is keep going and try and show the manager and the fans what I'm capable of doing."
