Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is intent on making up for his side´s virtual elimination from the Barclays Premier League title race by taking a major step towards alternative silverware this week.

Benitez leads his side into Saturday´s FA Cup fifth round clash with Barnsley before Inter Milan arrive at Anfield just three days later for a crucial Champions League showdown.

Benitez said: "Your aim is to win every trophy but sometimes you have to be realistic and sometimes you cannot. A lot of teams have the same problem. We have not won the league for 18 years and I have been here for three."
