Sir Alex Ferguson is crossing his fingers Manchester United's powderkeg Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday passes without incident.
It will be the first time United will have met their North-West rivals at Old Trafford since Luis Suarez refused to shake Patrice Evra's hand in last season's corresponding fixture.
However, the pair did make their peace at Anfield in September, which Ferguson is hopeful will be a sign of things to come.
"There will always be a certain build-up to a Manchester United-Liverpool game, simply because of the history between the two clubs, the two most successful in the country," Ferguson told Inside United.
"It brings its own agenda in terms of profile and pre-match discussion.
"Last year it was unfortunate with the Suarez behaviour.
"I think hopefully it is behind both clubs now and we can just look forward to the game."
