FA CUP : Liverpool 2-1 Everton : Andy Carroll's late goal wins it

Andy Carroll's late header sent Liverpool through to the FA Cup final as they came from behind to beat Everton at Wembley.

Nikica Jelavic took advantage of a mix-up between Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger to give Everton the lead midway through the first half and a halftime 1-0 lead.

But on the hour, Everton contrived to hand Liverpool an equaliser as Sylvain Distin's weak backpass was intercepted by Luis Suarez, who raced through and score.

Liverpool then missed a succession of chances, with Andy Carroll the main culprit, but CArroll redeemed himself with just 3 minutes remaining when he glanced substitute Craig Bellamy's free-kick past Howard to give Liverpool a 2-1 victory.
