Jose Mourinho says it will be a "beautiful" day for Manchester United away to Liverpool today and insists his players have no fears about a trip to Merseyside.

Liverpool can move within four points of joint-leaders United with an Anfield win today, with ex-United man Mikael Silvestre claiming this week that a game in Anfield was like "going to hell".
