Liverpool continue on Wembley way with helping hand

Liverpool continued their fine cup form as they eased into the last eight after thrashing Brighton & Hove Albion 6-1 in the FA Cup at Anfield. Kenny Dalglish's side, who take on Cardiff at Wembley next weekend in the Carling Cup final, were helped by three own goals from the Championship team, two by former Chelsea trainee Liam Bridcutt. Martin Skrtel opened the scoring after five minutes, heading in Steven Gerrard's corner, only for Kazenga LuaLua to level with a fine 25-yard effort. Andy Carroll struck in between the three own goals, before Luis Suarez atoned for a penalty miss with the late sixth. Unbeaten in nine cup matches this season, Liverpool face Stoke at home in the sixth round for a place in April's semi-finals and another trip to Wembley. MORE
