Liverpool reach FA Cup final

6:13 am on 15 April 2012

Liverpool have reached English football's FA Cup final after a 2-1 semi final win against Everton at Wembley Stadium.

Liverpool will face the winners of tomorrow's clash between London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in the May 5 final.

Its Liverpool's firs FA Cup final since 2006.

The weekend marked the 23rd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster when 96 Liverpool fans died at the semi-final against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989 and the afternoon began with a perfectly observed minute's silence from both sets of fans.
