Liverpool hold off Stoke
Liverpool - Liverpool made it through to the last four of the FA Cup after beating Stoke, last season's losing finalists, 2-1 at Anfield.
Luis Suarez gave the Merseysiders a 23rd minute lead after sending a shot past Thomas Sorensen only for former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch to level three minutes later when the England international headed in a corner.
However, England winger Stewart Downing settled the tie in Liverpool's favour when, after cutting in from the right, he struck a powerful shot past Sorensen in the 57th minute to seal a return to Wembley for the League Cup winners.
