Rafael Benitez has spoken of his excitement at being drawn to play local rivals Everton in the next round of the FA Cup.

After beating Preston 2-0 on Saturday, the Reds reward is a home tie against their fierce rivals from over Stanley Park.

He told Liverpoolfc.tv:

“It is a draw which will excite everyone in the city because everyone knows about the great rivalry that exists between the two clubs,” said Benitez.

“But we must remember that we have some big games coming up in the league before the cup tie and we will be taking one game at a time.

“Only when the cup game comes around will it become our focus and before then we play Stoke and Everton in the league so we must keep our focus on those matches.

“But it is good to have so many important matches because it shows that your team is doing well.”

Liverpool v Everton will be on the weekend of January 24/25.
