Liverpool v Man Utd: Focus on fans might distract players - Ferguson

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is worried his side might not be able to perform in Sunday's match with Liverpool as a result of the focus on fans' behaviour.

The two clubs face each other in the wake of the publication of the Hillsborough report, and Ferguson hopes it will not be a repeat of their loss to Manchester City on the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster in 2008.

The United manager confirmed the club will be without Ashley Young and Wayne Rooney at Anfield, with Young out for a further two to three weeks but Rooney probably fit to play next week.
