Mourinho, whose side has been in good form since the season started in August leads his charges to Anfield for an early kick-off on Saturday, with great expectation from fans.

Saturday tie is expected to be Manchester United’s real test but Mourinho, whose side has won six of their first seven games in the Premier League and are joint leaders with neighbors Man City says they have nothing to prove.

“It’s for three points, not four,” the Portuguese said.

“Maybe if we were in a moment of the season where it was a duel between two teams it would mean more, but it’s not the case.

“At the same time, in these kinds of matches, every single moment plays a part. We are playing against a good team with very good players.

“This is press talk or pundit talk- ‘We have to something to prove, Lukaku has to score, we have to win [is what they say]’.

“We have to prove nothing. We have our objectives for the season, we know where we want to go and how we have to go. One match, one result, one performance, that’s not going to change.”
