Manchester United assistant boss Mike Phelan is confident the usual animosity between rival fans at tomorrow's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Liverpool at Anfield will not spill over into something more sinister.

It will be the first meeting between the two clubs since Patrice Evra made the racism allegations against Luis Suarez that ended with the Reds forward receiving an eight-match ban.

Police and security will be out in force, and Phelan believes the encounter will pass off peacefully, telling BBC Radio Manchester: "We don't need to build this game up. It speaks for itself. I am sure supporters will take care of their responsibilities."
