Man United's attacking ambition under scrutiny at Anfield

Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, feels his team have nothing to prove as he spoke to Sky Sports (via the Independent).

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

Particular focus will be on United's 75 million pounds ($98 million) Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, who has been in prolific form, scoring in 12 of his last 13 games for club and country.

Coutinho and Firmino have now returned to Melwood to reconvene with the rest of the squad as Liverpool prepare for the early Saturday kickoff against Manchester United at Anfield. Manchester United are going to be tested but I think they can control these guys.

"The first time I went to Anfield I remember coming out and thinking 'phwoar, this is an unbelievable atmosphere this'". I should have kept my mouth shut! United are different. "This is the way we have to play big matches", Ander Herrera said last October. Yes, I love it. Do I like to play against Liverpool?

Klopp's passion is likely to be on full display this Saturday when Liverpool welcome United to Anfield.

The ref's first game in charge of a Liverpool and Manchester United clash came back in 2007.

Former Liverpool striker and manager Kenny Dalglish expects Mourinho to protect his defence with a cautious approach, similar to how they played in last season's 1-1 draw on Merseyside.

"Liverpool doesn't have one yet".

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table and level on points with leaders Manchester City after winning six of their opening seven games in the top flight.

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. If called upon to do a job in midfield, he is sure to be more than up for the challenge again. They've thrown away seven points in games against Chelsea, Burnley and Swansea at Wembley, and that's more than they dropped at home in the entirety of last season.
