This Saturday lunch-time, Manchester United go head-to-head with Liverpool, in a fixture packed with history and tradition.

It`s also a fixture that pits two of the biggest names, in English football, together, two clubs that have amassed a plethora of trophies in the past.

However, to Jose Mourinho, who has a tempestuous relationship with Liverpool whilst he was in charge of Chelsea, it is just another game with Mourinho remarking to the media, ahead of the game,

‘When you are in a big club, when you are a big player, when you are a big manager, every game is important.

‘You cannot look at some matches as cup finals and other matches differently. It’s three points, not four. It’s just a three-point match. That’s the way I approach it.”


However, Jose does drop his guard slightly when he also remarks about visiting Anfield,

‘Do I like to go to Anfield? Yes, I love it. Do I like to play against Liverpool? Yes. I like amazing stadiums and the best opponents but the preparation is not different. It’s just a match.’

My view is if you want to gauge just how much a game against Liverpool really means to our boss, just watch his reaction when Manchester United score!
