Gerrard calls for calm

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has pleaded with Reds fans to ensure the club's FA Cup tie with rivals Manchester United is remembered for a great match rather than controversy off the pitch.

Gerrard is calling for calm ahead of the clash, which is likely to feature Patrice Evra after the United defender was involved in a race row with banned Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Meanwhile, Gerrard and his team-mates set up a Carling Cup final against Cardiff City after they defeated Manchester City 3-2 on aggregate following a thrilling second leg at Anfield on Wednesday night, and the skipper is hoping the United match is memorable for the right reasons also.

"We all have a responsibility to ensure this game is remembered for the football," said Gerrard. "Liverpool and Manchester United is a massive rivalry and there is going to be stuff in the newspapers and banter between fans.

"But it would be fantastic if it is remembered for being a top game and, from our point of view, a Liverpool win.

"We don't want any front-page stories from this game or any stories which are not about a football match between two top sides - and may the best team win."
