Merseyside and London derby FA Cup semi-finals are a possibility following today's draw for next month's last-four clashes at Wembley Stadium.

Liverpool, who beat Stoke City 2-1, will face Everton if their local rivals can get past Sunderland after a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park yesterday.

Meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur will be up against Chelsea should they beat Bolton Wanderers in their quarter-final, which was abandoned after Bolton's Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch at White Hart Lane.

Liverpool, who have already won the League Cup final at Wembley this season, beat Everton 3-0 in the Premier League at Anfield on Tuesday.

"The people on Merseyside have two clubs they can be proud of," Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish told ITV.

"They [Everton] have a difficult game going to Sunderland to try and get themselves through; we are there and whoever you were going to get was going to be really difficult. If it's a Merseyside one fine, but it's a difficult hurdle for Everton to go to Sunderland."

Chelsea beat Championship side Leicester City, who were the last team from outside the Premier League still left in the FA Cup, 5-2 at Stamford Bridge, with former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres scoring twice to end his five-month goal drought.

The semi-finals will be played at Wembley over the weekend of 14-15 April.
