Manchester United should have in excess of 6,000 fans at the powderkeg FA Cup fourth-round tie with Liverpool at Anfield later this month.

Although the Merseyside giants have yet to confirm exactly how many tickets they have decided to allocate their fierce north-west rivals, tradition dictates United will get the entire bottom tier of the Anfield Road stand, which holds just under 6,400.

And Liverpool City Council have informed Red Devils supporters that objections to them getting their full allocation, which resulted in ticket numbers for the Premier League encounter between the two clubs in October being cut, have now been removed.
