Sunday's game will be the first time the two teams have met since the London club were relocated 60 miles north to Buckinghamshire in 2003.

The hugely-controversial move provides an intriguing back-drop for the match and Robinson admits he is filled with excitement.

He told the Milton Keynes Citizen: "It's the most unique game in English football.

"Losing is not something that crosses my mind. I'll worry about that, and the consequences of that, if it does happen. But there's not a thought process in my mind that says we're not going to win on Sunday.

"I'm just so excited about it. I understand some people aren't. But I'm doing my job. The FA Cup has drawn us together and I want to win the game."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
