Man United Starting XI Prediction, Jose Mourinho Presser Video vs Liverpool

Manchester United versus Liverpool has been deemed the England El Clasico by some, including the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. The last two editions held at Anfield though were anything but classic, and instead resulted in dull, tedious goalless draws. United manager Jose Mourinho was content to park the bus at Merseyside during his last two visits, and hopefully he won’t do that again on Sunday.

While Mourinho received a lot of criticism for bunkering down the last two times on Anfield Road, his opposing counter part, Jurgen Klopp defended him, and maintained that the Portugese is one of the best managers in the world.

“I don’t think Jose Mourinho ever has a lack of ambition,” the Liverpool manager told his news conference today.

“He just does what he thinks is right, and he’s one of the most successful managers in the world. It was not a joy for us to play against them having this quality on the other side and then having the ball constantly all the time and trying to have an idea to go around.

“The boys tried everything but it didn’t work out. We all have a plan for the game, no problem with that.”

Let’s take a look at who might be in that team that Klopp has to game plan for.
