Manager Sir Alex Ferguson is crossing his fingers Manchester United's powderkeg Premier League encounter with Liverpool on Sunday passes off without incident.

It will be the first time United, who are being heavily linked with Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha, will have met their north-west rivals at Old Trafford since Luis Suarez refused to shake Patrice Evra's hand last season. However, the pair did make their peace at Anfield in September, which Ferguson is hopeful will be a sign of things to come.

"There will always be a certain build-up to a Manchester United-Liverpool game, simply because of the history between the two clubs, the two most successful in the country," Ferguson told Inside United.
