Liverpool's Carling Cup triumph must be consigned to the trophy cabinet as the players prepare to "sacrifice" themselves for the club again, manager Kenny Dalglish said.
A first piece of silverware in six years was secured at Wembley after a physically draining Carling Cup penalty shoot-out win over Cardiff, but the players barely had chance to celebrate as they raced off to join their international teams for the various midweek friendlies taking place around the world.
With fourth-placed Arsenal visiting Anfield on Saturday, Dalglish wants his players fully focused on a match which could impact on their aspirations for Champions League qualification, and said: "We don't want to sound as if they shouldn't have enjoyed themselves - I hope they have because we have - but we've had the enjoyment and now it is back to work."
