José Mourinho charges Man United fans ahead of Liverpool clash

The Manchester United manager has urged Old Trafford faithfuls to get massively behind the team when they face Liverpool on Sunday.

United moved closer to the EFL Cup final courtesy a 2-0 home victory over the Tigers. With the second leg coming up in two weeks.

Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini both scored second half goals to give United an edge in the return fixture.

"Now this game is over, I think about Sunday." Mourinho told MUTV after the match.

"And  Sunday, I need to do better, the players need to do better and the stadium has to do better too.

"Everybody likes big games - players, managers, fans... everyone loves big matches so let’s go for that one on Sunday."

"It's a special match for us," he told the BBC referring to the Liverpool clash.

"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."

United are on a run of nine wins in their last nine matches across all competitions and will be hoping to make it ten win in their last ten matches with a victory over the Reds.

A win will also close the gap between Liverpool and United to two points, which will be a huge step in United's bid of breaking into the top four.

A United victory on Sunday will be a huge boost and provide the right psychological effect within the United camp heading into a crucial February period in the league.
