Cape Town - Brendan Rodgers says the FA Cup was always one of Liverpool’s prime targets this season.
The Reds boss takes his side into their quarterfinal replay with Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday evening, with a trip to face Aston Villa at Wembley being the reward.
And after missing out in the semifinal stage of the League Cup earlier this season, Rodgers wants to go one further in this competition.
"In terms of The FA Cup, that was always an objective," he revealed.
"A trophy this season will mark another step forward for us. Getting to a final and winning a trophy is what we want.
"On Wednesday, we'll look to reach our second semifinal of the season in the cup competitions.
"The group is very committed to winning this trophy but in order to do that you have to qualify and we know Blackburn will be a difficult game for us."
Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Gary Bowyer’s Championship outfit in their first tie at Anfield last month.
And they could also consider themselves fortunate to still be in the competition given the danger posed by Rovers during that game.
Since then, Liverpool have also suffered from something of a slump in their Premier League form so Rodgers has made sure his players are more than ready for what to expect.
"Blackburn have got some excellent players. They defended well when they came to Anfield," said the former Swansea, Watford and Reading boss, whose side lost by 4-1 at Arsenal at the weekend.
"We'll go there really focused and determined - we can't wait to play again after the weekend's disappointment.
"It's important to have a game quickly when you lose."
