Brendan Rodgers: The group is very committed to winning the FA Cup


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says his players are ready to look forward and focus on Wednesday's FA Cup replay against Blackburn Rovers.

Defeat at Arsenal means the Reds are almost certain to lose out in the chase for a top four finish and the Northern Irishman admits the FA Cup becomes a vital trophy to win to salvage their campaign.

"It's just important to have a game quickly when you lose," Rodgers said on Monday.

"There's no doubt there is disappointment at losing those games [against Manchester United and Arsenal] having put ourselves in a great position - we'd worked very hard to get ourselves into the position we were in before the Manchester United game.

"We're honest enough as a group to focus and analyse that we did not perform well enough, and when you don't against top-quality squads then unfortunately you can lose. But it's gone now. We need to focus on doing the very best we can.

"The group is very committed to winning this trophy, but in order to do that you have to qualify and we know Blackburn will be a difficult game for us.

"Then we can look towards the league then and look to finish the season strongly.

"It's something we want to do as a group. We've made steady progress over a couple of seasons and arrived in a Champions League place last year and nearly won the league.

"A trophy this season will mark another step forward for us. Of course, it's a difficult game for us but getting to a final and winning a trophy is what we want."
