Manchester United boss José Mourinho says there is nothing special about tonight’s opponents Liverpool (9pm).
The Premier League match-up between England’s two most decorated clubs is always a massive occasion.
But tonight at Anfield, with three points separating Jurgen Klopp’s fourth-placed Reds and the Special One’s seventh-placed Red Devils, José says there is no reason to get excited.
Asked if the Reds were title rivals, Jose sakked af: “That is not my problem. It is not for me to say that they are or they are not title contenders. I think you have to ask them.”
Mourinho is not liked at Anfield, after celebrating wildly in 2014 when he ended the Reds’ chances of a first league title in 26 years in the game when Steven Gerrard famously slipped.
Klopp, though, doesn’t want to get caught up in the hype either.
He says: “We don’t think about United too much. We know about their strengths and where they are individually strong, experienced and all that stuff.”
