Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists their FA Cup semi with Everton is not dominating their thoughts.

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."
