Jake Livermore: The Tottenham midfielder aiming for his fourth start in this season's FA Cup against Bolton on Saturday
Bolton stand in the way of Jake Livermore and the one thing that would make his season complete - a return to Wembley.
The 22-year-old was just 19 years old when he scored a dramatic equaliser against Barcelona in the pre-season Wembley Cup back in July, 2009.
And Tottenham host Owen Coyle's men on Saturday with an FA Cup semi-final place at Wembley awaiting the winners.
"That goal feels like many moons ago!" Livermore told the club's official website. "It would be great to go back to Wembley, the heart of English football. Every player in the changing room wants to go there.
"There are no easy games and Bolton will be difficult. The FA Cup, you can never predict what will happen, but we'll be ready. It's another tough game for us.
"The FA Cup is a big part of our season and to get a result against Bolton to get the chance to play at Wembley is a dream. We all want to play at Wembley and we all want to win the FA Cup."
The cup will present Spurs with a welcome break from their present Premier League struggles with the North London side experiencing a poor run of late.
Three straight defeats, including the 5-2 drubbing by rivals Arsenal, threatens to undo all of the hard work earlier in the season that had them touted as title contenders by some.
But Livermore insists the players can be proud of their efforts so far and is hoping for a Wembley cup final to round it off.
"The lads are disappointed with the results but we can take pride from the performances," added Livermore.
"We've worked our socks off and sometimes you get the breaks, sometimes you don't. Hopefully we'll finish where we deserve to finish at the end of the season."
