Liverpool head in to the weekend action sitting one point clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table so they'll be looking to at least maintain that advantage with a win over fierce rivals Man Utd on Sunday.
United meanwhile were enduring a horrific season, with most commentators labelling David Moyes a dead man walking.
"But they are a good team, the intensity they play at makes the game hard, but we have to match that and try to improve it".
United languish 16 points behind their rivals in sixth place, but Mourinho led the Old Trafford outfit to Europa League and League Cup victories in his first season in Manchester in 2017.
"They have a good run of fixtures coming - start to build with a result against Liverpool and see what happens", he said.

When we won those games at the start of the season, maybe there was some surprise because we were adapting to a new style under a new manager. "I think they came second a year ago".
"When you can hear them pushing you on, it gives you that extra burst to go again and I think that's something that is tough to explain because the adrenaline overtakes what's going on and you find that extra burst of energy". One win in their last five Premier League games certainly does underline the malaise United are in, and a game against heated rivals Liverpool is yet another ideal opportunity for Mourinho to frustrate Klopp with his defensive lead tactics.
