Dalglish demands Liverpool players not slack off in league

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is demanding his players not switch off in the league after reaching the FA Cup final.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is demanding his players not switch off in the league after reaching the FA Cup final.

With three top-flight games to play between now and the showpiece event on May 5, the Reds boss insists his troops keep their eyes on concentrating on their next game.

"It's now a case of getting ourselves back down to earth after Wembley," Dalglish told liverpoolfc.tv.

"We've not got much experience of dealing with big games and the matches that follow it. A few of the lads have been through it, but mainly we are a new team and this is a new test for the majority.

"We were delighted with the response after winning the Carling Cup (in February).

"The following weekend we went out and produced one of our best performances of the season against Arsenal. With a bit more luck we would have enjoyed a very good win (Liverpool lost 2-1).

"Now we're just off the back of another good result at Wembley, and we want a similar response, albeit with a different result."
