Everton midfielder Leon Osman believes Liverpool as a city is going to be engulfed in FA Cup derby fever.

The Toffees are set to meet their Merseyside derby rivals, Liverpool, in the semi-finals at Wembley on 14th April.

Both Everton and Liverpool still have two games to play over Easter, but Osman is already thinking about the 'crazy' atmosphere of the derby.

"It's a big game. It has been 20-odd years since we've played each other at Wembley, so it will be pleasing to be a part of one of those games," he told the Liverpool Post.

"It'll be a crazy place to live. It's only a few weeks, so it's a quick turnaround.

"It will be crazy with people wanting tickets left, right and centre, so that will be fun and games over the next few weeks."
