Jurgen Klopp responds to Mourinho trophy jibe: Liverpool have the right combination

Mourinho is unsure if there will be signings in January

" If people say the Champions League campaign last season was not a success because we didn't win the final then I can not change that".

Much has changed since the sides last met in March, where a 2-1 victory for United took Jose Mourinho's men five points ahead of Liverpool on their way to securing second-place to runaway winners Manchester City. Liverpool, for the first time in recent - probably Premier League history - have the single outstanding centre-half in the country - and a goalkeeper that has genuinely plugged all the gaps they were leaking goals from - in seasons past.

Mourinho has struggled this season, with United's supposed refusal to heavily invest in the summer a key issue.

However, Keown added that United have a "massive opportunity" to build momentum with a win over Liverpool before games against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

"I used to be, and still am, a big fan of Mourinho because of how he set up his team when he came to Chelsea and how they played their football".

Jurgen Klopp insisted his time at Liverpool could not be judged exclusively on winning trophies.

"But before, you were always guaranteed that either United or Liverpool would have fight and desire and kick and punch, and no matter what it took, the intensity, just because of the size of this fixture".

The Reds boss confirmed that Alexander-Arnold will miss the game this weekend after suffering a foot injury during the closing stages of Tuesday night's Champions League group stage win over Napoli.

WHAT ABOUT LIVERPOOL?Liverpool will be without Joel Matip for Sunday's Premier League clash.

But the German, who has lost three finals during his time at the club, said there was more to consider than just trophies.

But Klopp was unwilling to criticise United's style, saying it was up to his team to find answers. No was planned, I just went berserk and just ran around on my knees.

David de Gea and Nemanja Matic, who were rested for the trip to Spain, will return while Mourinho must decide whether again to leave out midfielder Paul Pogba, who failed to impress in Valencia. It's unbelievable. They have strikers ― they can switch between (Marcus) Rashford, Lukaku and others; they have (Jesse) Lingard, they have (Anthony) Martial.

"They have unbelievable quality". Today there will be a little introduction to see the answer and to see if we can increase a little bit tomorrow to have them available for Sunday.

Mourinho responded: "Well, I played against a Liverpool that was European champion".
