MOTD COMMENTATOR'S NOTES

Guy Mowbray: "They met four times last season, but never really in the blood and thunder tradition of Liverpool v Manchester United.

"There wasn't even anyone sent off! A rare thing in the recent history of a game many consider a bigger derby than any same city rivalry.

"Jose Mourinho v Liverpool has history too - and if he thinks the Anfield fans weren't keen on him as Chelsea boss…

"Jurgen Klopp's men are flying, whilst Mourinho's feel they're owed a 'fat result' after dominating Stoke but drawing last time out.

"It could be a magic Monday.

"As for any red cards - in truth I hope ref Anthony Taylor has an efficiently quiet night after criticism of his appointment to the game."
