FA won't relish replay - Ferguson

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted the Football Association might be hoping Manchester United's powderkeg FA Cup fourth-round tie with Liverpool on Saturday is settled at the first attempt.

A massive security operation has been put in place for the Anfield encounter, which will be the first time the north-west rivals have met since Patrice Evra made his racism allegations against Luis Suarez.

And the United boss accepts the prospect of an Old Trafford replay, which would take place just days before the two sides are due to meet in the Premier League, and for which Suarez would be available, is probably not too appealing for the game's authorities, saying: "It could be a replay. That would get the FA going."
