Ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester United, Merseyside Police have released a statement in which they call on fans attending the match to "act as ambassadors for their clubs".
Hosts Liverpool want to avoid a repeat of the scenes that marred the build-up to the Champions League quarter-final tie against Manchester City in April 2018. Earlier, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted he has no fears about a potential hostile welcome from Liverpool fans on Sunday.
"There are no safety fears, but of course they want to try to intimidate us. But as long as it’s within the boundaries," Solskjaer.
“I’ve been sat in a coach or bus going to Europe or to Anfield and whatever they shout and scream you don’t really notice, that’s just part and parcel of these games.
“I’ve had both wins and defeats there as a player at Anfield so you’ve got to look forward to these games.
“It’’s a great challenge for our players to play against the leaders of the league. We’ve done well against them the last couple of times, but away at Anfield is another matter."
"Merseyside police are working with Liverpool FC and Manchester United before their Premier League game in Anfield on Sunday, January 19, 2020, to ensure fans both clubs have a safe and enjoyable afternoon."
