Glen Johnson says Liverpool must remain focused on their league form and not get distracted by the forthcoming FA Cup final with Chelsea.

Having already won the Carling Cup, the Reds have a chance to complete a domestic double at Wembley on 5th May - just the fourth time any side have achieved the feat.

But with the club eighth in the Premier League and on course for their worst finish since 1994, the England defender says they must improve their league form before they think about any more silverware.

"We'll take each game as it comes," said Johnson.

Trophy

"The preparations will be the same as usual. We've got a game on Sunday against West Brom so we've got to enjoy the win and then we'll look forward to that game before the final.

"We need to take every game as it comes and we've got a few more games before then.

"But it (the final) is going to be there in the back of people's minds. Hopefully we can pick up another trophy.

"The lads got a buzz for winning stuff a few months back in the Carling Cup and luckily we're in another final."
