That is the verdict of former United defender-turned-pundit Phil Neville.
Mourinho and Klopp have faced each other seven times, and Klopp has only been on the losing side once with spells spanning across Dortmund and Liverpool.
Klopp’s men welcome United to Anfield tomorrow (12.30pm) and the German tactician will be eager to close the gap on United, who are seven points clear of them at the top of the Premier League table.
And while Mourinho has often come out second best, Neville thinks he will be desperate to get some revenge.
“He won’t like it at all. He prides himself on being the best and he pits himself against the best,” Neville told Sky Sports’ The Debate Show.
“Klopp is renowned as one of the world’s best coaches.
“He won’t like it that Klopp has got a better record.
“That’s why I think he’s always enjoyed going to Anfield he did it with Chelsea and he would wind up fans by saying he “parked the bus”.
“He always had a gameplay that worked at Anfield.
“He likes the challenge and he’ll also like the challenge of not being done by Klopp this time, because he’s got the better of him.”
Mourinho, however, will have to get three points without the help of Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba, who are both ruled out of the match through injury.
