Liverpool put in a good team performance to overcome Stoke City in the FA Cup quarterfinal at Anfield and progress to a Wembley semifinal against either Sunderland or Everton. Several top individual performances led the way, but it was certainly the collective effort which aided the Reds' qualifications.
Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing got themselves on the score sheet on both sides of former Red Peter Crouch's equalizing header.
A feisty and at times slightly abrasive match saw twice as many yellow cards as goals, while neither of the referee's assistants covered themselves in glory with a spate of dubious calls.
Liverpool were the better side over the 90 minutes and deserved their spot in the semifinals—their second appearance at Wembley this season, while Stoke City are yet to win at Liverpool since their last victory in 1959.
