Javi Manquillo urges focus from Liverpool ahead of Blackburn Rovers tie

Javi Manquillo urges focus from Liverpool as they prepare to host Blackburn in the last eight of the FA Cup.

Javi Manquillo has urged the Liverpool squad to focus ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final tie with Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.

Victory for the Reds at Anfield would see them through to a Wembley semi-final, but the Spanish defender is not taking the Championship side lightly.

Manquillo told the club's official website: "To play at Wembley would be incredible and would fulfil a dream I have had since I was little. However, to get there we have to beat Blackburn first and we must focus on that now.

"We have to take one step at a time to achieve our objectives. Let's play this game against Blackburn first and go little by little before we think about winning a trophy.

"It feels different playing at Anfield - we usually play more aggressively at home. It's easier for us as we have the support from our fans."

Liverpool beat Crystal Palace in the previous round to set up the last-eight tie with Rovers.
