The FA will speak with Patrice Evra in the next 48 hours over the Manchester United defender's allegations that he was racially abused by Liverpool striker Luis Suarez at Anfield last Saturday.

United have given clearance for Evra to meet FA officials but allowed their players to have yesterday off after flying back from Tuesday night's 2-0 Champions League win over Otelul Galati in Romania, says the Daily Mail.

Evra is determined to pursue the case and, depending on what he says, the FA are likely to want to speak with Suarez as well.
