Match Preview

Kelly dreaming of Wembley final Liverpool defender Martin Kelly hopes the FA Cup will allow him the chance to realise a childhood dream and win the final at Wembley. In recent weeks cup competitions have represented the England Under-21 international's best chance of first-team action, with starts in the last two rounds of the FA Cup. And so he heads into Sunday's visit of npower Championship side Brighton hoping for more pitch time in order to help the team to a second final of the season, having already booked a Wembley appearance against Cardiff in the Carling Cup. "Growing up as a kid, you ask any kid, the FA Cup is massive and everyone wants to get to the final and win it," he said. "It's got such a tradition and I think the FA Cup is fantastic. "For a young player like myself it's fantastic to play in and we would love to go all the way in the competition this year. I remember watching Liverpool win the FA Cup on the television and we would love to win it again. "It was brilliant to play in the last round against Manchester United and it was a fantastic day. It's every lad's dream growing up to play against your rivals and try and put on a good display." Maxi Rodriguez could make his return to the Liverpool team. Midfielder Rodriguez has not featured since the fourth-round victory over Manchester United at the end of January due to a foot problem, but should be fit for selection. Reds manager Kenny Dalglish has indicated that young defenders Jon Flanagan and Jack Robinson may come into his thinking for the tie. Seagulls boss Gus Poyet accepts his players need to produce the perfect performance to trouble the Reds. Brighton were rewarded for upsetting Barclays Premier League side Newcastle at the Amex Stadium last month with a trip to Merseyside in the FA Cup fifth round. It will be the second time this season that Brighton have come head-to-head with Dalglish's side after goals from Craig Bellamy and Steven Gerrard sent Poyet's side crashing out of the Carling Cup in September. Poyet appreciates the uphill task that faces his players at Anfield but has urged them to play without fear. "The players know what they need to do in order to be competitive because we have already played them this season," the Seagulls boss told the club's official website. "They know how they need to defend, they know how strong Liverpool are and they also know their quality in movement, speed and technical ability. "We need to be at our best to have any chance. We know that we have no pressure at all but, at the same time, we really respect Liverpool. It will be a great experience and very unique for a few players who might never get this opportunity again."

Match Report

Reds through in style Brighton contributed an amazing three own goals to Liverpool's biggest win since September 2009 as the Reds booked an FA Cup sixth round meeting with Stoke. Liam Bridcutt twice turned the ball into his own net, the first, just before half-time after Kazenga Lua Lua had levelled Martin Skrtel's early header proving crucial. Lewis Dunk also scored an own goal, although Reds boss Kenny Dalglish will be more pleased that man-of-the-match Andy Carroll was also on target before setting up Luis Suarez, who had already missed a penalty. It was a good day all round for Liverpool, so much so that Jamie Carragher could even have a joke with a male streaker, who entered the playing area in stoppage time. For, after six barren seasons, Liverpool now have the familiar scent of silverware in their nostrils. Whilst the financiers might place a Champions League berth at the top of their list of targets over the remaining weeks, for supporters, days out at Wembley are special. In seven days' time, Kenny Dalglish will lead his team into a Carling Cup final confrontation with Cardiff. It could turn out to be the first leg of a double. Dalglish could not have wished for a better start. Distracted by the presence of the excellent Carroll, who was wrestled to a standstill by Adam El-Abd, Brighton allowed Skrtel a free run at Steven Gerrard's near-post cross. The header was firm enough to send it whistling past Peter Brezovan. Brighton were fortunate to escape when they fell asleep at a quickly-taken free-kick, allowing Gerrard to shoot narrowly wide. The visitors were being so comprehensively outplayed that it came as something of a surprise that they levelled, with Lua Lua - teed up by a training ground free-kick routine - expertly finding the bottom corner from 25 yards with a low shot. The injection of confidence was clear, triggering an open contest. Carroll nodded a Gerrard cross over, Inigo Calderon superbly cleared off the line to deny Suarez and Gerrard's free-kick was tipped over by Brezovan. In return, the speedy Lua Lua flashed a shot into the side-netting after he had scorched past Glen Johnson. After all that, Liverpool's second goal was scrappy. Suarez, booed by the Brighton fans even though their manager Gustavo Poyet had backed his fellow countryman in the recent racism row on plenty of occasions, produced some neat trickery to create a shooting opportunity for himself. Brezovan was equal to it but when the rebound bounced kindly for Johnson, the full-back turned his header goalwards. Sam Vokes thought he had cleared, only for the ball to strike Bridcutt at point blank range and bounce back into the net. Within 10 minutes of the restart, Jordan Henderson nearly turned home an off-target Gerrard shot and Brezovan denied Downing. When Downing cut a cross back for Carroll, the burly striker swept home first time from 10 yards. It was no more than the big Geordie deserved - fit and firing, his size provides a threat no defence will find easy to contain. Brighton failed to manage it and with three goals in his last 10 appearances, Carroll is beginning to find the form which brought him such prominence at Newcastle. The visitors' nightmare was not over though. First Bridcutt was in the wrong place at the wrong time again as Gerrard's low cross bounced off him at the near post to provide Liverpool with a second own goal. Then Dunk joined in the act. After succeeding only in kneeing the ball towards his own goal as he tried to juggle and clear, Dunk deserved to be punished for sheer stupidity - although there was some doubt as to whether it crossed the line. After substitute Dirk Kuyt had been felled 10 minutes from time, the party atmosphere demanded Suarez take the spot-kick . In keeping with the slapstick, he missed, only to atone from Carroll's nod down shortly afterwards to emphatically stamp Liverpool's presence in the last eight.
