Kenny Dalglish is keen to avoid allowing an FA Cup semi-final with Everton to become a distraction for Liverpool as they attempt to find some form.
The Reds have enjoyed themselves in knockout competition this season, lifting the Carling Cup to end a six-year wait for major silverware and booking their safe passage through to the last-four of the FA Cup.
They have, however, endured a worrying wobble in the Premier League, with five defeats in their last six outings seeing them tumble out of contention for a UEFA Champions League spot.
It is Dalglish's intention to stop the rot in Sunday's trip to Newcastle and he admits full focus must be given to that fixture, rather than see thoughts drift towards another day out at Wembley.
"The (FA Cup) game is two weeks away so I am sure there will be a lot of conversations about Everton nearer the time," said the Scot.
"It was a fantastic result for Everton. They played really well at Sunderland and I think they thoroughly deserved to go through.
"But for us the most important game right at this particular moment in time is Newcastle.
"We will play Newcastle first and take it from there.
"The semi-final against Everton will be covered when it needs to be covered and we won't be getting ahead of ourselves."
Liverpool may have struggled to put themselves in title contention this season, but former Reds boss Gerard Houllier has claimed that winning the league remains an 'obsession' at Anfield.
Asked for his take on those comments, Dalglish said: "I don't know how you define the word obsession.
"It would be fantastic for Liverpool Football Club to win the league.
"We've won plenty in the past. It's been a while since the last one and it's an ambition for everyone who supports Liverpool to see them win the league title.
"But, at the end of the day, there are a lot of other games to play other than league matches, and we want to compete in every game we play in.
"I'm not obsessed with anything other than the next game."
