Sir Alex Ferguson fears the emotion of Manchester United's visit to Liverpool on Sunday could have a negative effect on his players.

The game will be the first for Liverpool at Anfield since the damning findings on the Hillsborough tragedy were announced by an independent panel last week. Liverpool intend to mark the match with a number of significant gestures and Ferguson has already appealed for calm from United fans in what is certain to be a tense atmosphere.

And having gone through something very similar four years ago, on the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster, the Red Devils boss accepts it may have a hidden impact. "It's a possibility, I don't deny that," said Ferguson.
