Two own goals from Liam Bridcutt and a third by Lewis Dunk helped Liverpool to a 6-1 win over second-tier Brighton at Anfield here on Sunday as it set up an FA Cup quarterfinal tie with Stoke.
The Reds, who have not won any silverware since the 2006 FA Cup, face another Championship side in Cardiff in the League Cup final at Wembley next weekend.
But they also moved into the last eight of the FA Cup with a convincing display against Gus Poyet's team.
