Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt would love nothing better than to achieve a double knockout over Manchester this week.

Having dispatched City in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg on Wednesday the Reds have to raise their game once again for Saturday's lunchtime visit of United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

"The lads are more than ready for the weekend," said Kuyt. "It will be great not only to knock out City in the Carling Cup but to knock out Manchester United in the FA Cup. We set a target on Wednesday night so we have to make sure we play with the same effort as against City and I am sure we will find that."
