Rodgers expects peaceful United clash

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects this weekend's emotionally-charged contest with Manchester United to pass off without crowd problems.

The Barclays Premier League encounter at Anfield on Sunday will be Liverpool's first home match since last week's publication of an independent panel's report into the 1989 Hillsborough disaster. There have been widespread appeals to fans of all clubs to cease tasteless chanting about tragedies to have befallen their rivals.

Rodgers said: "Liverpool-Manchester United games are always very emotional. You add to that the findings of the last couple of weeks and it makes it even more emotional. First and foremost, we want to pay tribute to the families, the victims and the survivors. It is our chance to do that."
