Will Jose Mourinho's Manchester United look to contain Liverpool?

Will Jose Mourinho's Manchester United look to contain Liverpool?”

"That was the game we played", Mourinho told Sky Sports afterwards.

Ferguson oversaw 27 years of remarkable success at Old Trafford after being appointed manager in 1986, but struggled initially.

The Red Devils head in to this weekend's fixture high on confidence and in form.

It's time to find out if that attacking approach is here to stay now the fixtures are stiffening for Jose Mourinho's team. Man Utd is more quiet, the fans love their team too but there is more emotion and more passion I think in Liverpool.

"Ultimately, you get what you deserve over 38 games".

Most recently that came away to City in September, when Sadio Mane's first-half red card preluded a 5-0 mauling at the Etihad Stadium. I should have kept my mouth shut!

"He was successful all right - and I don't think there's a lot wrong with how he went about it, either".

Gary Neville believes that that Manchester United will have to weather a Liverpool onslaught in the first 30 minutes of Saturday's Premier League clash at Anfield.

Against the rest of the top-six sides in the English top flight-United, City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal-Liverpool have mustered one win, two draws and one defeat in early kickoffs. "This is press talk, or pundit talk: 'We have something to prove, [Romelu] Lukaku has to score, we have to win' [is what they say]".

"You can say, like some people do, we have not played one of the top five teams but last season we did not beat West Ham at home, last season we did not beat Everton at home or Southampton away."

Jurgen Klopp used to dream of managing of Manchester United before an opportunity at Liverpool presented itself, claims Eckhard Krautzun.

No, the problem comes through the nature of these contests, and the one which oversaw Fellaini's injury serves as a perfect example: the mixture of a terrible pitch, the pointless nature of the game (Belgium qualified for the World Cup back in September), and an almost 3,000 mile round trip was a recipe for disaster.

At the same time a win would silence some doubters while raising belief within the stands and the squad that Manchester united are indeed back. "At the same time, in these kinds of matches, every single moment plays a part".
