Klopp plays down Mourinho rivalry ahead of 'special' Manchester United clash

Liverpool legend taunts Arsenal Chelsea Man Utd & Spurs have left them behind

After you've read this, obviously...

Stung by the 'ghost goal' by Luis Garcia that knocked his Chelsea team out of the Champions League in 2005, he celebrated provocatively when Chelsea's 2-0 win at Anfield imperilled Liverpool's title bid in 2014. Chelsea emerged from an eminently forgettable game as 1-0 winners. It's United's biggest test so far and it's his big chance to make a statement. Details of exactly what will be on offer are so far rather vague, but the park will include a lot of technology, with interactive displays, robots, holograms and virtual reality. You can predict the outcome of that and all the rest of the weekend's action by voting in our match polls.

To characterise Mourinho as a defensive coach is unfair. When it clicks, it's glorious, like thrashing Arsenal in August. If you do not lose, you cannot lose ground in the race. Kane isn't flashy, but he has an unerring talent for putting the ball in the net.

If they get beaten they will probably be a 100-1 shot to win the Premier League. When they try to use Mkhitaryan with small passes and then he can use his speed or Rashford can use his speed or Lukaku can stretch the formation.

Emre Can has urged his Liverpool team-mates to go in 'hard' against Manchester United on Saturday and says the Reds are determined to 'dominate' the Anfield clash.

Jurgen Klopp's side are already playing catch-up on the leaders this season, and could be even further behind if things don't go their way against old rivals Manchester United on Saturday.

Argentine sniper Paulo Dybala of Juventus leads Serie A with 10 goals in seven games.

It means a likely start for last year's club player of the year Ander Herrera alongside Nemanja Matic.

The Netherlands haven't made it either and that is disappointing for them, but they've been there plenty of times. "It is a result that stops a direct opponent getting three points at home, so not a bad result".

Klopp can nevertheless point to an excellent record in head-to-head matches against other top-six sides, having suffered only two defeats in 20 such contests since his arrival in October 2015.

An overwhelming 96.5% of "managers" chose Manchester United and Spain number one David de Gea. A big performance is required from the Armenian as well for while Liverpool may be inconsistent, they will be fired up on Saturday and will not settle for anything less than a win. Despite looking as fit as he has ever been, Daniel Sturridge is lacking match sharpness, starting just three games, while preferred central forward Roberto Firmino has scored once in his last six outings. Klopp remains confident they will get through their current drought, although they will have to do so without the injured Sadio Mane.

But the loss of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United has outweighed the acquisition of the likes of Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson and Ronald Koeman's team find themselves just two points above the drop zone.

"So we are very happy in our careers to have one more opportunity to play in these beautiful conditions".

John Arne Riise nearly put a free-kick into the United net with 26 minutes on the clock before Dirk Kuyt was just about unable to turn in Craig Bellamy's cross.
