Luis Garcia came back to haunt Jose Mourinho again as Liverpool edged a tense FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Garcia had grabbed what Mourinho branded a ‘ghost goal' at Anfield a year earlier to knock Chelsea out of the 2005 Champions League semi-finals.

And the Spaniard played a key role in plotting Chelsea's FA Cup downfall in Manchester.

John Arne Riise's early freekick put Liverpool in the driving seat but, https://tuxlandia.epick.org/index.php?title=Ex-boyfriend_Of_Calendar_Girls_Star_Jennifer_Ellison_Is_Jailed_For_His_Part_In_Gangland_Sword_Attack_On_Boxer with the tie in the balance, it was Garcia who gave Chelsea a mountain to climb with a half-volley that made it 2-0 just after the break.

Didier Dogba had the Liverpool nerves jangling when he pulled a goal back with a header 20 minutes from time.

But Liverpool held firm to book a final meeting with West Ham in Cardiff, the last final at the Millennium Stadium before it returned to a rebuilt Wembley.
Contrasting emotions from the captains, Liverpool´s Steven Gerrard and Chelsea´s John Terry, after Liverpool won 2-1 in the 2006 FA Cup semi-final at Old Trafford.

It would be labelled the ‘Gerrard final', after the Liverpool skipper scored twice, including a spectacular injury-time equaliser paving the way for the Reds to triumph in a penalty shoot-out.
