Phil Jagielka is not only hoping to play against the redshite. He needs to get to a final and be fit for it. Jags was our hero in the last Wembley semi we had against United but wasn't able to play in the final because of his bad knee injury.
He will be vying for a place in the starting line up with Johnny and Sylvain. But he knows he may have to bide his time.
Who would you have at the back?
Jags said: "The memories that I have of playing in the semi-finals last time are up there with the best of my career. So it's nice to go back and it would be nice to play as big a part as I did last time. But I understand at the moment the boys have been doing really well, so I might have to bide my time and see how it goes.
"If my role at the moment is to give Johnny and Sylvain a rest for a game, it's not ideal for me, but we're all part of a squad which wants to do well and we all want to win a trophy. So whatever the manager sees fit, as long as the end result is what we want, we'll all be giving each other high fives and it will be irrelevant.
"I feel a little bit like I'm owed a final. I've played in four semi-finals and I got through one but wasn't able to play in the final. I'm still lucky enough to have played those big occasions and they're fantastic enough on their own. But it would be nice to get through to a final and play in one. It would be even nicer obviously to win one."
