Kenny Dalglish claims he won't fall for David Moyes' mind games ahead of
their FA Cup semi-final showdown.
Liverpool boss Dalglish smiled when he heard his Everton counterpart had cranked up the pressure on the Reds by installing them as favourites to win the April 14 games at Wembley.
He said his Carling Cup winners aren't bothered by Moyes' ploy, adding they
are just focused on performing at their best and reaching their second Cup Final of the season.
"I suppose somebody has got to be favourite, haven't they?" said Dalglish.
"Moyesy doesn't want to be favourites - that doesn't make any difference to
us. We'll take it.
"It doesn't matter what the odds are. All that matters is what happens on
Dalglish insists the first all-Merseyside affair at Wembley since 1989 will
not take Liverpool's minds off their immediate task - attempting to turn around their woeful league form.
"It's not a distraction for us," he said. "It was not a distraction for any
of the other games and we've just got to concentrate on Newcastle on Sunday and then the games after that.
"We will only concentrate on the semi-final once that is the next game to
come up. We cannot get carried away with ourselves."
