Ahead of Sunday’s game between Manchester United and Liverpool, Jose Mourinho claims he doesn’t know whether this game is the biggest in English football, but he does know that United are the biggest club in England.

I don’t know. I know that Manchester United is the biggest club in this country.I know. You know. Everybody knows. I’m sorry. It’s easy to know. I can feel the rivalry is big and, for sure, it’s a big match. Around the world, people will look to this match with special eyes, that’s for sure.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists that he has nothing to be afraid of at Old Trafford, despite losing to Southampton in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final and drawing 0-0 at home with League 2 side Plymouth Argyle over the past week.

Fear? Nothing. What could I fear? We’ve now had four days to react from a really bad game on our side by playing in a very important game. I love it. That’s how football should be — you can react immediately. So let’s think about this and not what could happen if we can’t do it.
