Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet insists no-one - not least Steven Gerrard - is talking about a potential fairytale FA Cup final send-off for the Reds captain.
Gerrard turns 35 on the day of the Wembley showpiece on May 30, which could be his final Liverpool appearance before heading off to Major League Soccer for a new career with the LA Galaxy.
Liverpool took a step closer to that scenario by booking a semi-final against Aston Villa next weekend with a narrow 1-0 replay victory over Blackburn on Wednesday, but it is not a subject for discussion within the dressing room.
"Nobody is talking about it. Stevie is the first one to acknowledge that," said Mignolet.
"He is the first one to acknowledge that we can't have any extra pressure on the team.
"He won't let us think in a different way. We just want to focus on Villa and the games before that.
"Before we speak about the final, we have got to get through the semi-final and the only thing we can keep in mind now is how to get past Villa. Then we will see what comes. Villa will be tough."

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer says the idea that Liverpool are in the middle of a crisis is 'ridiculous'.
The two clubs face each other in an FA Cup replay on Wednesday night, with the Premier League side coming off the back of two defeats.
"I think it's ridiculous that after losing two games, the team that was hailed prior to those two games as being the best in the Premier League - which they were at the time with the football they were playing - then comes in for that," he said.
"Brendan Rodgers has done an unbelievable job, he doesn't need me telling him. But that's just the world we live in now - it's crazy."
