LiverpoolvMan United: Mourinho will park the at Anfield, says Dalglish

Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish expects Jose Mourinho to adopt a defensive approach when his undefeated Manchester United travel to Anfield on Saturday.

Dalglish, however, believes United will revert to a more conservative style for the clash against Jurgen Klopp’s attacking Liverpool, just like they did for last season’s scoreless stalemate on Merseyside.

“Three years ago, Jose brought Chelsea up to do a job and they did it really well, so for me there’s no blame apportioned to him because Liverpool missed out on the title.

“He came back to Anfield with Manchester United last year with a similar philosophy, but there are no rules which say you can’t play defensively, and they almost snatched it at the end when Zlatan Ibrahimovic had that chance.

“And when he comes back for this game, I’m sure he will be cautious again because this is United’s first game against one of the so-called top six.

“With respect to other Premier League teams, these are the games that might decide who lifts the trophy in May.

“Mourinho has a knack of knowing how to win games, and if he thinks his best chance is to shut up shop, he’s entitled to do that – but for us, Jurgen Klopp will be the complete opposite. He’s not interested in a draw, he only wants a victory.”
