Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has just two words for his team before they enter Anfield- Stay Calm and Relaxed. The United manager has been preaching calm to his team before they face Liverpool in a crunch Saturday afternoon kick-off. According to Mourinho, it would be just another game against Liverpool and he is not worried about his team winning or losing. The result will not define his side’s performance this season.
Manchester United is having a great season this year and is only a goal behind Manchester City in the league table. While Liverpool is seven points behind top four. A defeat on Saturday to United would raise serious questions about Jurgen Klopp’s future at the Merseyside club. However, it is too early to call any team champion or rule out the possibility of any team winning the league. Leicester City was the finest examples of the biggest upsets in Premier League history.
Speaking of Liverpool, Mourinho firmly believes that the season is still very long and predicting something so early is simply not justified. A tricky situation cannot be ruled out for United as the red devils only scored once while playing away against the League’s top five in last season. Mourinho is looking to play a more aggressive game this season and eyes for victory. In a statement, Mourinho said that he understands how crucial and difficult games can be. You should not complain even if the team manages to share some points out of it.
Mourinho shares a long history with Anfield. In 2005, this is the ground where Luis Garcia’s ghost goal sent Chelsea out of Champions League and Liverpool into the final. Liverpool lifted the trophy and the rest, as they say, is history. However, Mourinho again returned to Anfield after nine years in the second spell as Chelsea boss and defeated the reds 2-0. This not broke Liverpool’s dream of winning the league for the first time in over 24 years.
