Manchester United defender Chris Smalling admits a trip to Liverpool for the FA Cup hasn't been discussed among the players.

United may need all their mental toughness on Saturday when they travel to Liverpool in the FA Cup - their first trip to Anfield since the Patrice Evra-Luis Suarez racism row.

Smalling shrugged off the prospect of playing in what is bound to be an even more hostile environment than usual.

"To be honest, we've not really thought about it," he said.

"The manager spoke before that we've got five or six massive games coming up and I think he just wants us to enjoy it.

"That's what I'm certainly going to do.

"It'll be nice to do them on their own patch, just like we have done (to Arsenal) here."
