Liverpool 2-1 Stoke City
Sunday, 18th March 2012
The draw will be made at 6.05pm at Wembley Stadium, where the semi-finals will take place on the weekend of the 14/15th April 2012.
Luis Suarez gave the Reds the lead with a fine low shot from just outside the area, after combining well with Maxi Rodriguez.
But Liverpool’s lead was shortlived when former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch headed home a corner to equalise for the Potters just at around the half-hour mark.
Stoke played a strong performance and matched the Reds for long periods of the game, but the home side’s second breakthrough came fifteen minutes into the second half when Stewart Downing blasted a loose ball home from the edge of the area. It was only the left-winger’s second goal for the club.
