Agger denies cup distraction

Defender Daniel Agger has denied that Liverpool are focusing too closely on their FA Cup semi-final against Merseyside rivals Everton following their poor run in the Barclays Premier League.

Kenny Dalglish's side drew 1-1 against Aston Villa on Saturday to extend a league record that has seen them win just once in their past nine matches. The main interest of the Reds' season now appears to be whether they can add the FA Cup trophy to their Carling Cup success.

The Reds must first travel to Blackburn for Premier League action before their Wembley showdown, and Agger said: "I don't think next weekend's game is in our heads now. When you play for a club like this it doesn't matter if there is a trophy or not, there is always a lot to play for."
