Liverpool legend Dalglish: Mourinho to park TWO double deckers at Anfield! But watch Salah...

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has taken a swipe at Jose Mourinho ahead of the visit of Manchester United.

Both meetings last season ended in stalemate last season with the Reds held 0-0 at home and 1-1 at Old Trafford.

Dalglish believes it will be close once again but he's confident that Jurgen Klopp's side can get their season back on track by inflicting a first defeat of the campaign on Manchester United.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “Last year, when United came to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho parked the bus. But it wasn't just the one bus, I think it was a couple of double deckers he put there. That's not to give him stick in any way, it was very difficult for Liverpool and (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic nearly got a late winner.

“I think United will come and set up quite defensively, but at the same time they have fantastic frontmen in Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial. I think Jose will try to make sure the pressure is on Liverpool, but the pressure is on everyone when it comes to a game like that."

Dalglish has been impressed by the impact of £36.9million signing Mohamed Salah from Roma.

He said: “Mo Salah has been the most exciting signing of the summer for Liverpool. He's come in after a fantastic season last year with Roma.

"Obviously some people over here had already seen him play whilst he was at Chelsea but he's come in and scored a good few goals and has looked really threatening. He's really quick, he takes it up to people and they start to panic. He can go inside or out but he obviously prefers it on his left foot."
