Evra set for Anfield

Published Add your comment

Manchester United assistant boss Mike Phelan has confirmed Patrice Evra will not be spared the trial of playing at Anfield on Saturday.

United's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Liverpool will be the first time they have faced their old rivals since Evra levelled racism allegations at Luis Suarez that ended with the Uruguay forward landing an eight-match ban. Suarez will still be suspended this weekend, a fact that is only likely to heighten the normal antagonism for United from the Kop.

But, when asked by BBC Radio Manchester whether United had thought about leaving Evra out, Phelan said: "It wouldn't be a consideration. Patrice Evra is a football player who plays for Manchester United. If he is fit, he is considered to play like any other player."
