Liverpool suffered FA Cup final heartache as goals from Ramires and Didier Drogba gave Chelsea a 2-1 win at Wembley.

The Reds hoped to complete a cup double after their Carling Cup success but found themselves with a two-goal deficit following a disappointing first hour at the national stadium.

Substitute Andy Carroll inspired an unrelenting fight back in the final half-an-hour, but the Reds could not find an equaliser to add to his 64th minute goal.

Instead it was Chelsea who lifted their seventh FA Cup, but our third trip to Wembley this season was still a reminder that Kenny Dalglish has at least led Liverpool back into contention for silverware.

Andy Carroll headed a dramatic late winner to send Liverpool into the FA Cup final with a 2-1 victory over Everton at Wembley.

Nikica Jelavic gave the Blues a 24th minute lead when he capitalised on a loose ball inside the box after Jamie Carragher's attempted clearance had struck Tim Cahill and fallen into the path of the striker.

Luis Suarez drew the Reds level just after the hour-mark when he latched onto a short back pass from Sylvain Distin and slotted home.

And Carroll secured victory with time ticking away when he headed home from Craig Bellamy's free-kick to send the travelling Kop into delirium.

Liverpool will now meet either Chelsea or Tottenham in May's Wembley final as they seek to complete a domestic cup double.

Prior to kick-off, Wembley observed a minute's silence in memory of the 96 Liverpool fans who lost their lives at Hillsborough ahead of Sunday's 23rdanniversary of the disaster, and captains Steven Gerrard and Phil Neville also presented bouquets of flowers to families of the 96.

Both sets of fans also paid a moving tribute to the memory of Gary Ablett, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

A sensational strike from Luis Suarez helped Liverpool book a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The Reds beat Stoke City 2-1 at Anfield, with Stewart Downing netting the winner after a controversial Peter Crouch goal cancelled out the stunning opener.

A trip to Wembley is the prize for Liverpool less than a month after they triumphed there in the Carling Cup final.

The game got underway following a round of applause in support of Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba as he receives treatment in hospital.

Kenny Dalglish made just one change to the team that beat Everton 3-0 on Tuesday, Maxi Rodriguez replacing Jordan Henderson. And it was the Argentine who mustered the first attempt on goal after three minutes, nodding marginally over the crossbar from a Steven Gerrard free-kick.

Stoke responded with lofted passes to top scorer Crouch, and though most of his headers were won, Liverpool were usually smart to the second ball.

The match was developing into a nondescript encounter until 23 minutes, when Suarez received possession midway inside the Stoke half. The No.7 found Maxi, who returned the pass first time before watching Suarez control and then thunder into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Liverpool started their quest for a return to the new Wembley in the FA Cup with a home draw against Oldham Athletic. The fixture was shifted to the Friday night because Everton were also playing at home on the Saturday this weekend. A minute’s applause was held before the match in memory for former Liverpool player Gary Ablett who sadly passed away on New Year’s night after a long illness.

THE TEAM

As expected Dalglish made a few changes to the side that lost to Manchester City last Tuesday. The major team news was that Gerrard was making his first start since October. Martin Kelly, Coates, Carragher and Aurelio were the defence in front of Reina, with Gerrard partnering Spearing in the middle of midfield, Maxi, Spearing, Bellamy and Kuyt made up the rest of a strong looking side.

THE MATCH

Oldham started the match brightly but it was Liverpool who almost took the lead in the 5th minute when Kuyt headed a Bellamy cross wide. But Oldham reacted to this scare with Shefki Kuqi shooting into the side netting after powering past Coates and Carragher.

With Oldham causing Liverpool a few problems, Adeyemi headed a Simpson corner over as Liverpool struggled to find their rhythm. Then Simpson stabbed an effort wide after a good move. But Oldham deservedly took the lead when Simpson turned and lashed an effort from 25 yards into the top corner of Reina’s net with the Spaniard well beat.

With a shock looking on the cards, Liverpool responded within two minutes when Shelvey’s shot was deflected by Bellamy into the Oldham net making the score level. Liverpool were aroused by their goal and Cisak made a good save from close range from Maxi. But Liverpool took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Maxi was bundled by Adeyemi , resulting in a penalty. Gerrard made no mistake from the spot, giving Liverpool a 2-1 lead at the half.

The second half continued in the same theme with end to end action and chances at both ends. But as the game wore on Liverpool started to dominate more and they got the killer third goal in the 68th minute, when Bellamy’s cross was hooked home from close range by Shelvey. With the game won Dalglish brought on Carroll and Downing for the last few minutes and both players capped a fine night for the home side with Carroll scoring first, before Downing netted his first goal for Liverpool in stoppage time.

SUMMARY

A much changed side for Liverpool with many players short of first team action and it showed in the first half with Oldham causing us a few problems. But after we got the quick equaliser we looked a better side although we took a while to end the game as a contest. Great to see Gerrard start and he grew into the game. Great to see us score a few goals at home and see Carroll and Downing score, this will do wonders for their confidence. Overall a great win and now we can look forward to a home draw against Manchester United, bring it on.

Man Of The Match - Bellamy- dangerous all night, caused so many problems with his pace and industry. Superb performance.

Whoever were unable to watch the match live on TV can watch this goal highlights by sportnetworld at Videa.

The Latics made a plucky start to the contest and having gone close on several occasions, they opened the scoring in the 28th minute courtesy of Robbie Simpson's dipping volley from distance.

Liverpool comeback from behind to win this tie, goals from Bellamy and Gerrard’s penalty before half-time making sure the Reds are in the driving seat at half-time. In the second half, Liverpool pressed on with goals from Shelvey, Carroll and Downing to capped off a magnificent performance of the night.

Team news for tonight's FA Cup third-round clash between Liverpool and Oldham Athletic at Anfield (kick-off 8pm).

The visit of the League One outfit affords Dalglish the opportunity to tinker with the side that lost 3-0 to Manchester City midweek and he is likely to recall defenders Jamie Carragher and Sebastian Coates.

Striker Luis Suarez serves the second game of an eight-match ban, but captain Steven Gerrard will probably be given another chance to continue building up his sharpness having made three substitute appearances following his comeback from an ankle infection.

Oldham, though, will sense an occasion to cause an upset and manager Paul Dickov hopes his club, who are currently contesting their 15th consecutive season in the third division, do not suffer from stage fright.

Oldham, meanwhile, are likely to have on-loan trio Luca Scapuzzi, Tom Adeyemi and Nathan Clarke available.

Although their loan deals have expired, manager Paul Dickov is confident he will have wrapped up new deals before the game, while midfielder James Wesolowski could return to the starting line-up after recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Top scorer Shefki Kuqi could be given the nod ahead of Matt Smith.

Fifty-two places separate Liverpool and Oldham in the Football League and they have not met since 1994 during the latter's last season in the Premier League, which would suggest a comfortable win for the Reds.

But Dalglish's side have struggled at home this season and, despite remaining unbeaten, have drawn six games at Anfield, with a running trend being wasted chances and the inability to kill-off supposedly lesser opposition.

There is then some feeling Oldham could call on the old-fashioned FA Cup magic, but Dalglish is still expected to rotate his squad and the strength in depth at his disposal is an example of the gulf between the two clubs.

Red's Fury™ Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Oldham
