Steven Gerrard warns his Liverpool teammates to concentrate on Manchester City rather than having an eye on a potential trip to Wembley.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has urged his side to remain focused on their Carling Cup semi-final second-leg tie against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Gerrard's goal in the first leg a fortnight ago gives the Reds a 1-0 lead heading into tomorrow night's match at Anfield.

However, the England midfielder has warned his teammates to ignore the prospect of a date at Wembley and focus on winning tomorrow's tie.

"Wembley talk has got to be banned because we haven't made it there yet," said Gerrard.

"Of course it enters your mind and you dream about it; that helps when it comes to motivation."

Gerrard has been limited to 12 appearances for Liverpool this season after a lengthy spell out with a ankle injury.
