The Reds face Everton on April 14, but have three league games before that Wembley date — all of which they MUST win to have the faintest hope of a top-four finish.
And Dalglish claimed: "The semi-final is not a distraction for us. It was not a distraction for any of the other games and we've just got to concentrate on Newcastle and then the ones after that.
"We will only concentrate on the semi-final once that is the next game to come up. We cannot get carried away with ourselves."
