Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish wants the focus to be on the football and not the contentious issue of Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez.

This follows Suarez's eight-match suspension after being found guilty of racially abusing United's Evra when the two sides met at Anfield in October.

"We want to concentrate on going out and playing football and any other sideshow is purely that, it is just a sideshow," the Scot said.

"Everyone has a responsibility to uphold the names of their respective club and anyone who reports or comments on the game also has the responsibility to make sure they are not trying to incite trouble.

"But it is not only the fans who have to behave themselves; we have a responsibility to behave - but that is the case every time.

"I am sure everyone will be determined to make sure what's done has been done and whatever your grievance is keep it to yourself and let's get on with the game."
