Jose Mourinho states his prediction for Man United v Liverpool
Jose Mourinho tells Manchester United fans that their recent form won't count for much against Liverpool on Sunday
Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United that the form book will go out of the window when the Red Devils host Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Devils head into the game as the favourites to claim all three points after their impressive run of form in recent weeks.
Manchester United have been in much improved form in recent weeks and have won their last six Premier League games on the spin heading into their clash against the Reds.
And Mourinho feels that the form of both teams leading up to the game will not count for much as they prepare for their showdown at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before the game, Manchester United boss Mourinho said: “The moment doesn’t really matter a lot, the form, the injuries, the players available, I don’t think it means a lot.
“They are isolated matches, isolated from context, isolated from who is playing better or worse, who is in front in the table and who is behind. I think it is isolated from context so I just look at two big clubs and lots of good players.
“Before I came to Manchester United, to play Liverpool meant to play against a big club, to have the pleasure to play against an historic club, not just in this country but in the world. It was just about that, enjoying that.
“At Manchester United to play against Liverpool has a little plus of an historical rivalry and that means for the fans something more and for us as professionals wearing Man United shirts and working for Man United. We must catch that feeling.
“Let’s put all of this together. It’s a big opponent, a big rivalry, a big match and I’m looking forward to it.”
Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season before the Dutchman was sacked and replaced by Mourinho back in May.
