Carragher: Next league games a good chance for Liverpool players to grab FA Cup spot

Jamie Carragher has urged his Liverpool teammates to put their best foot forward in the lead-up to next month’s FA Cup final.

Jamie Carragher has urged his Liverpool teammates to put their best foot forward in the lead-up to next month’s FA Cup final.

The Reds have saluted in just two of their past 11 Premier League outings and Carragher sees the next two fixtures – against Norwich City and Fulham – as a good dress rehearsal for the Wembley meeting with Chelsea on May 5.

"It's all to play for in terms of cup final places, but we're going into these games to get three points because we need to move up the table,” he told the club’s official website.

"Of course, if you perform well in these games, you have a greater chance of playing in the final.

"And certainly, we all want to play in the big games. There are two games now before the final and I'm sure the manager will mix it up because the Fulham game is just before the cup final.

"We'd like to finish above Everton but I'd rather win the semi-final, like we did against them, than if they were to finish above us."
