Manchester United must battle history if they're to win at Liverpool on Sunday in the FA Cup.

It was 1960 when they last recorded a win at Anfield in the competition, although admittedly, there has only been one such meeting since, a fifth-round tie in 2006 settled by a solitary goal from Peter Crouch, memorable also for the horrific injury suffered by Alan Smith.

"Looking back over the years, Manchester United against Liverpool has always been a fabulous fixture," said Phelan.

"At Old Trafford, it is something special. But when you go to Anfield, it brings all those years of heartache and joy back.

"The atmosphere will be fantastic.

"We have had some good results there, we have had some poor ones. Hopefully we can get the right one this weekend."
