Jurgen Klopp's side have failed to keep a clean sheet since their 4-0 win against Arsenal on August 27, but Thompson is feeling "very confident" due to Liverpool's history at Anfield in big games.

Dalglish expects Mourinho and Man United to sit back at Anfield

  Dalglish expects Mourinho and Man United to sit back at Anfield Kenny Dalglish believes Manchester United will revert to a more conservative style for the clash against Jurgen Klopp's attacking Liverpool.Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish expects Jose Mourinho to adopt a defensive approach when his undefeated Manchester United travel to Anfield on Saturday.

Live scores . José Mourinho believes Manchester United will thrive in the “huge animosity” of Anfield on Saturday because his players will relish the atmosphere.

Wayne Rooney faces a fight to regain his Man Utd starting place despite assurances from Jose Mourinho. They went into enemy territory at Anfield , silenced the Kop and stifled Jurgen Klopp’s free- scoring side.

His first trophy in English football came against them in the 2005 League Cup, and among the 28 Premier League points he has taken from the red half of Merseyside are the three his Chelsea team won at Anfield in 2014, when Liverpool had been on the cusp of the title.

"The relationship between Mourinho and Liverpool makes it extra special - and Jose doesn't mind it," Thompson said.

"He has always been admired, even before he came to this country. He's created that dislike from the Liverpool fans ever since he was Chelsea boss. It's a bit of a game for Jose. He's made it bigger than what it is, including turning Liverpool v Chelsea into a big game which it wasn't in the past. Now he's Manchester United manager it makes it all the more important.

"The dug-out camera will be brilliant on Saturday."

Kenny Dalglish has said he expects Mourinho to adopt a similar defensive approach to last season when they drew 0-0 in a pretty uninspiring encounter.

The visitors enjoyed just 35 per cent possession that day but Thompson feels due to their current form and attacking flair, playing a defensive focused game might not be the way to go.

"They were inferior to Liverpool at Anfield last season and didn't park just one, but two buses," he said.

"They went man-for-man - during the game I was thinking this can't go on, but it did.

"However, they are a far better team this season and more is expected of them. It's a big debate to see whether he'll park the bus again - it's down to Liverpool to react to that."
