Liverpool boss Rodgers: We're serious about FA Cup

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says they're serious about beating Arsenal in their FA Cup clash.

The manager insists he will field a team capable of prolonging the Reds' Cup run.

"We want to win the FA Cup," he told reporters gathered at Melwood. "That's our objective. We've got no midweek game [after the Arsenal match] so we can go as strong as we wish to go.

"It's probably different for Arsenal, who have a massive game after ourselves [against Bayern Munich] in the Champions League, so they may have to look at it differently. We won't need to rest anybody.

"We want to do it for the club. Since I've been here, we have changed the squad around in order to try and help us in the league.

"When I have made too many changes, we haven't been good enough and that's seen us go out of tournaments earlier than I would want. This year, we wanted to do well in the cup competitions - hence the reason why we've been strong.

"We want to get to Wembley, not for the semi-final, but for the final. If we're there for the final, then it gives us a chance to win it."
