Jose Mourinho delivered a withering putdown to an unfortunate reporter when asked if he planned to adopt a more offensive game plan against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday
Manchester United will be seeking to extend a seven-point gap over their fierce rivals, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 11.30am.
Mourinho's undefeated side are in a stronger position than they were 12 months ago when they adopted an extremely defensive game plan en route a rather dour scoreless draw on their last trip to Anfield.
This time United travel in confident mood after six wins and a draw from seven games but that does not mean Mourinho will abandon his characteristic defensive approach.
When asked if he would employ a more offensive game plan, Mourinho drew laughs from the media when he replied: "Yeah, I'll play with one defender and nine strikers. Don't worry about it that's for sure. One guy behind, and we go with a new system.
"We go with an evolution of the old W-M and we play with nine strikers, don't worry about it."
