Fresh off picking up his 9th win in a row this season, Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has declared his side will be chasing a perfect 10 when his team entertain Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.
Speaking after easing past Hull City 2-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final, Jose showed his focus was now completely on the big game with Liverpool, declaring, "It's a special match for us."
Jose also once again asked the fans to get involved in the game and back his side, saying, "If we play enthusiastic football the fans come to the pitch and play with us. When we don't play with great intensity it is normal that the fans are not so vocal. But we have absolutely amazing fans, fans who push us and get behind us.
"Everybody likes big games - players, managers, fans. Everyone loves big matches so let's go for that one on Sunday," he added, trying to get the already salivating fans even more excited about the prospect of taking on their arch rivals.
The importance of the game isn't lost on the fans either, who are away that the Red Devils trail Liverpool by just 5 points in the Premier League standings, and a win in this game will give their top 4 ambitions a huge boost.
