Jurgen Klopp Answers Jose Mourinho's Jibe About Winning Trophies

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists winning trophies shouldn't mean everything in football.

The Reds' tally of 42 points after 16 games is the fourth-best start to a campaign in top-flight history, behind Manchester City (46 points in 2017-18), Tottenham Hotspur (46 in 1960-61) and Chelsea (43 in 2005-06).

Jordan Henderson has warned against dropping standards before the crucial Premier League game against Man United, saying their rivals will sense an opportunity to cause an upset. I don't know if it was better or not better; I know the other team was European champion and that this team won nothing.

Mourinho's side face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday and are 16 points behind their north-west rivals.

"And it's not that the two sides have been coming into a derby like this with contrasting form, that's happened a lot".

"We know that we are going to play against the leaders, against a team on a high, but we have our qualities, we have our potential", he said.

"City are so good that you can not let them dictate the game".

Nathaniel Clyne could be set for a return, but due to his lack of match sharpness, it is more likely that vice-captain James Milner will start at right-back for the United match this weekend.

"But, I don't read much, I think Jurgen told already they want to win the Premier League, is their objective, is to win the Premier League."
One win in their last five Premier League games certainly does underline the malaise United are in, and a game against heated rivals Liverpool is yet another ideal opportunity for Mourinho to frustrate Klopp with his defensive lead tactics.

"I think Mata will play as well as he always seems to do well against Liverpool". I just focus on what Liverpool are doing.

"I don't think people should question Mourinho and his tactics, but it looks weird from the outside".

A positive result against the Red Devils would extend that run to a record-breaking 18 matches, which includes every top-flight fixture this season plus the final one of last term. "I think they came second previous year".

"You've got a guy who comes into the team as a first-team regular two seasons ago and has established himself as one of the best centre-backs, especially playing in a three if not the two, in the league".

"It's always a good feeling to see the ball hit the back of the net but, in the last game, I was happy anyway".
