Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has stated that playing Liverpool ‘means more’ than playing Premier League champions and former club Chelsea.

Mourinho, who managed Chelsea between 2005-07 and 2013-15, believes United’s clash with Jurgen Klopp’s side has a ‘special meaning’ which playing Chelsea does not.

United meet Chelsea in the Premier League on February 25, and the Portuguese boss has downplayed the fixture.
