Steven Gerrard is desperate to give the 9,000 travelling fans a day to remember at Old Trafford on Sunday - but he has warned them not to expect any camera kissing if he once again scores against Manchester United.
The captain understands the fans are feeling frustrated after a difficult week for the club - but he believes the FA Cup third round clash against our arch-rivals provides a great opportunity to turn things around.
Gerrard has been putting all his efforts over the last few days into rallying his teammates to ensure the headlines make more palatable reading come Monday morning.
He told Liverpoolfc.tv: "We're going into the game on the back of some disappointing results, so yes, as the leader of the team, I and the other experienced players know it's time to rally the troops, get them ready.
"I understand the fans' frustration at the moment with results in the league but it's a different tournament completely.
"The fans know that on our day we can beat Manchester United. Their support could play a big part - 9,000 of them and I'm sure they'll be very noisy.
"I'd love nothing more come that final whistle to be enjoying a victory with them.
"It could help the whole remainder of the season if we win. The atmosphere in the dressing room if we beat them will be fantastic and hopefully it could push us on to improve results in the league."
Gerrard has scored on two of his last three visits to Old Trafford - and both goals were celebrated with a kiss for the TV cameras.
"I don't know whether you'll see a kiss to the camera but I'm hoping you'll see a goal," said the 30-year-old. "I haven't really planned celebrations - my focus has been on getting myself right and recovered from the last game, and rallying the boys to make sure we perform at the weekend.
"I'm looking forward to playing well in the game and winning, and if I score and we win then that's an extra bonus.
"You do it off adrenalin. Sometimes you look back and cringe a bit at your celebrations but I'm Liverpool through and through - always have been. So to get a goal at Old Trafford is special to me."
Gerrard takes heart from our performance in the 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford earlier in the season, when the Reds enjoyed large periods of dominance despite the scoreline.
"I thought we controlled the game, dominated large parts of it and the goals we conceded were our own fault rather than as a result of Manchester United's good play," he said.
"They're having a good season, they've got match winners and on their day they are capable of beating anyone at Old Trafford. But I've also seen things that we can exploit.
"We've beat them there before and we're going into the game confident we can beat them again.
"I'm always very confident when we play Manchester United. Sometimes these are the easiest games as captain because you don't need to motivate the other players - they are automatically up for it because it's such a big tie. This game's covered throughout the world and the players realise how big this is for the football club.
"We'll need every player to show up and perform to their maximum. You need 11 players to perform close to their top level to get a result at Old Trafford."
The FA Cup is a competition dear to the skipper's heart.
He regards the 2006 final in Cardiff - christened 'The Gerrard Final' following his late heroics to take the game to penalties - as one of his career highs.
One Cup goal he has yet to achieve, though, is a final at Wembley.
"The FA Cup means an awful lot," he said, "It's a special tournament for me, especially after what happened in 2006. I've always been a massive fan of watching the FA Cup since I was a young boy, and I'd love nothing better than to lift that cup again.
"The only disappointing thing about 2006 was that the final wasn't at Wembley. Cardiff is a fantastic stadium and it was a great game, but to lead Liverpool out at Wembley would be that little bit better I suppose.
"We played Manchester United when we won it in 2006, so if we can knock them out, the confidence that'll give us for the rest of the tournament - it could give us the push to go all the way."
