Tony Coton: 'Liverpool match will test Manchester United's title chances'

When asked how much pressure Klopp boss is now under at Anfield, Purslow said: "If you mean from his ownership, none whatsoever".

The global break has not been kind to Mourinho, prior to the two-week fixture break "The Special One" knew that he would be without long term absentees Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo, all of whom are not expected to feature again for United until the New Year.
