Manchester United play Everton at Wembley in the semifinal of the FA Cup to see who will join Chelsea in the final.

The Merseyside club will be looking to emulate their win in the 1995 final, when they beat United by a single goal.

Since their victorious year 14 years ago, they have only been able to reach the quarterfinal twice, the first in 1998-99 and the next in 2001-02.

They have made it past that milestone, but can they go an further?

The Blues' manager, David Moyes, has said that this match is important to him and the club:

"It is Everton's biggest game of the season, definitely," he said. "I think it is probably David Moyes' biggest game as Everton manager as well."

After their winning performance in the Champions League during the week against Porto, United will be hoping to carry on their great form.

After a number of injuries, the Reds will be looking forward to the return of key players including Ferdinand, Vidic, Anderson, and Berbatov.

Yobo and Vaughan could start for Everton after a period of injury.

Man Utd haven't won the trophy since they beat Milwall in 2004, and will want to get their own back on Chelsea after they lost in the final in 2007.


Bets On:

Man Utd to win:   5/6

Draw:   12/5

Everton to win:   7/2
