AS AAN: Jurgen Klopp and José Mourinho

Mourinho and Klopp says there's nothing special about Reds taking on Man United.

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.”
