Jose Mourinho - We Are A Better Team, Every Minute Counts

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has no doubt inherited the rivalry between the Reds and the Red Devils, when he decided to take the Managerial Job at Old Trafford and this coming weekend he will be facing Liverpool knowing how much emotion his personal rivalry with the club had brought him throughout his previous spells at Chelsea.

Defeated Liverpool for his first English trophy back in 2005 EFL CUP finals, having also been defeated in crucial matches by Merseyside team, Defeats at Anfield in the Champions League semi-finals of 2005 and 2007, which should fall among his biggest Defeats against the side.

With this no doubt, Jose Mourinho is preparing for some good techniques to stop the Merseyside team come the seventh of this month though this doesn't reflect in his speech. While speaking to Skysports.

"I like to play against the best teams, I like to play against the best clubs and I like to play at the best stadiums - the stadiums with more history," he says of the rivals he's come up against more times than any side except Barcelona.

"And you are right, at Anfield I've had great moments and I've had bad moments. They have had happiness against me, they have had very sad moments against me.

"[Now] if they respect me as much as I respect them, we are going to have another one of those matches."

This is a game between the most successful clubs in England and despite its recent underrating, both teams have had their rivalries a decade Jose Mourinho's special rivalry will no doubt make the game one of the biggest and anticipated game of the coming weekend.

The United Boss also said that every moment in the game will count because it's for the three available points and if the game had been for just the two teams, reasoning surrounding the buildup would have been different.

"It's for three points, not four. Maybe if we were in a moment of the season where it was a duel between two teams it would mean more but it's not the case.

"At the same time, in these kinds of matches, every single moment plays a part. We are playing against a good team with very good players."

"I think we are a better team [than we were]. You can say, like some people do, we have not played one of the top five teams but last season we did not beat West Ham at home, last season we did not beat Everton at home or Southampton away.

"I think it would be unfair to say Lukaku and Matic did not make an impact, we have to admit that and give them what they deserve.

"But also the team give Matic and Lukaku the conditions to arrive the way they have.
"Globally we are a better team, does that mean we are going to be as successful as last season, winning two titles? I don't know. But we are better."

The Manchester United Boss has maintained that despite winning the Europa League and EFL CUP last season, the modifications of the squad this season and the big goals set by the Club this season, whatever the results at Amfied will not dictate their season.

"This is press talk, or pundit talk: 'We have something to prove, Lukaku has to score, we have to win [is what they say]'.

"We have to prove nothing. We have our objectives for the season, we know where we want to go and how we have to go.
"One match, one result, one performance - that's not going to change anything."
