Everton could be set for an all Merseyside showdown with Liverpool in the last four of the FA Cup if they can see off Sunderland.
Following their 2-1 win over Stoke at Anfield, Liverpool were drawn to face the winners of the replay between the Black Cats and the Toffees, who drew 1-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday.
And Tottenham will face London rivals Chelsea - 5-2 victors over Leicester - if they can overcome Bolton in their quarter-final clash, which was abandoned on after Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch late in the first half with the score 1-1.
Liverpool beat David Moyes' men 3-0 at Anfield in the Premier League on Tuesday, with the Scot making the controversial decision to rest a number of players ahead of the cup game this weekend.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish told ITV: "The people on Merseyside have two clubs they can be proud of. They [Everton] have a difficult game going to Sunderland to try and get themselves through; we are there and whoever you were going to get was going to be really difficult. If it's a Merseyside one fine, but it's a difficult hurdle for Everton to go to Sunderland."
The semi-final ties will be played at Wembley over the weekend of April 14 and 15.
