Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy says Liverpool are upstaging arch-rivals Manchester United at the moment.
The Former England international believes that presently Jurgen Klopp is everything that Jose Mourinho isn’t.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said : “Liverpool supporters love his honesty and his enthusiasm. He’s ingratiated himself into the club, he’s made himself part of it, which is exactly what Mourinho hasn’t done.
“Mourinho has been a more successful manager and that’s ultimately what counts. But one of the most worrying things about Mourinho is the body language and the lack of fight.
“It’s very unlike any other Manchester United team, any Mourinho team to be honest.
“And I don’t see how he is going to be able to turn it around that quickly, not unless there’s a drastic change in his mentality. I don’t see that happening.”
On Liverpool’s chances at the title this season, Murphy said :
“The club have given themselves a really good opportunity by strengthening the squad and creating competition for places.
“I’m not sure they’ll beat City; if I’m honest, I think the gap is too big to bridge in one summer – but they’ll be challengers at the very least.”
