Merseyside was bubbling over the prospect of two titanic derbies on the horizon. Liverpool and Everton were set to meet in the premier league in a few day’s time but both faced tough London replays before the derby in Coca Cola cup could be confirmed. Everton must overcome Chelsea after twice allowing the lead to slip in the initial match whereas Liverpool can expect another tough challenge from Crystal Palace in a Selhurst Park replay. If both sides got through their respective replays, they would be matched up against each other in the quarter-final. The neighbors had met in the same final eight years earlier and faced each other twice more in FA cup finals since then, with Liverpool winning on each occasion.
