MANCHESTER UNITED Jose Mourinho press conference quotes What Man Utd boss said

Jose Mourinho

A flawless start of seven straight wins in all competitions has come undone in the past week with defeats to Chelsea and Napoli in the Champions League, either side of a draw with Chelsea on league duty last weekend.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants his side to be "closer" to Liverpool in English football.

Keita, who joined the Reds this summer for £48 million, was making his first Champions League appearance for his new team but it didn't go as he would have hoped. They are a top side in the way they play.

"I think the top six head-to-heads are vital in terms of the title and top four, but in terms of these two I think it's going to be tight, and that means Liverpool have to do well in the two league games against City".

Liverpool's home form in the Premier League and their excellent recent results against Manchester City explain their status as slight favourites here. "You could see Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance", said Klopp after defeat in Italy on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp believes his Liverpool side must overcome the "biggest force in world football" if they are to usurp Manchester City this season.

This comes after Liverpool failed to register a shot on target against Napoli for the first time in about 6 years and team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum stating that this was a reality-check so it will be interesting to see which Liverpool turns up at Anfield this weekend.

In Brazilians Alisson and Ederson, these clubs have two of the best keepers in the Premier League, and I expect them to have busy afternoons.

"But I think it will be hard for Spurs to challenge for the title with their squad depth and how many players went to the World Cup but I wouldn't write off Chelsea with Eden Hazard in the form he's in". It's all good. What's massively changed is only the kind of questions you ask.

"The best way to protect the bus is for Liverpool fans to go into the stadium".

He said: "Obviously we won the last three games against City".

"I'm very happy under him and think he's an incredible coach". There are a lot of games to play'.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has had a hand in five goals in his three games against Man City for the Reds in all competitions in 2018 (3 goals, 2 assists), scoring a goal in each match.
