Liverpool are set to hold board-level talks with Manchester United in an attempt to restore good relations and defuse growing tensions ahead of next month's meeting at Old Trafford.

The match has become a focal point as it is likely to be Luis Suarez's first away from Anfield following the end of his eight-match suspension for racially abusing United's Patrice Evra.

The two north-west clubs have enjoyed cordial relations off the pitch in recent years, but those have been strained during the three-month investigation and subsequent punishment of Suarez. However, Press Association Sport understands the Merseysiders are keen to rebuild bridges now they and the Uruguay international have accepted the punishment.
