Everton are through to the FA Cup semi-finals after a 2-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday, and will now face cross-town rivals Liverpool in the next round.

The Toffees sealed victory on Wearside by a Nikica Jelavic strike in the first half and a David Vaughan own goal in the second 45 minutes.

David Moyes felt that his men dominated the fixture, and were good value for their win.

“If we hadn’t won tonight, there would have been something not right,” he told Sky Sports.

“We created a lot of chances and we actually didn’t finish the game off at times.”

The Scottish coach went on to state that he felt that Kenny Dalglish’s men were favourites in the semi-finals, but that he is hoping to make the final.

“Liverpool will be favourites. They have beaten us twice this year, haven’t they?

“They have to go into the game as favourites, and we will go there and play.

“I think anybody would think going to a semi-final would be an achievement, whether you have been there one year or 10 years.

“But the thing about Everton is they have got a history of being in finals, semi-finals, winning things.

“I have not been in as many as I would like to be, but I actually think there are mitigating circumstances for that in a way.

“But Everton as a football club are used to it, it’s been there many times before and this isn’t a strange place for them,” he concluded.
