Jose Mourinho turned 58 on Tuesday, but what do you get the manager that has seemingly had it all?
Well, us over at Odds Manager want to give the “Special One” something that money can’t buy – our unbridled backing in Thursday night’s match against the champions.
Jurgen Klopp won’t be in the mood for celebrating milestones in north London.
The only milestone on the German’s mind is ending their five-match winless run in the Premier League.
When Mourinho smells blood he is a dangerous manager, and we think Thursday night has the makings of a classic.
Check out our top Odds Picks for Tuesday’s match including a 5/1 Long Shot that could be bagged at half-time.

Our Top Odds Pick – Tottenham to win – 9/4 at Paddy Power
Okay, we’re going to level with you – recent history isn’t kind to this pick.
Tottenham have registered just one win over Liverpool in their last 18 meetings, with the Reds currently on a six-game winning streak against the London club.
But we believe that records are for DJs, and we are going to spin them how we like.
Mourinho’s added an edge to this Spurs side and they’ve started winning matches that would usually fall above their pay grade.
Liverpool are in the midst of a mini-crisis and 9/4 for a home win is too good to let slide.
Our Long Shot – Half-time score – Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool – 5/1 at BetVictor
Tottenham are the epitome of a first-half team, leading in seven of their nine home matches at the break.
We fancy Mourinho to nick an early lead in this one, batten down the hatches and try to frustrate Klopp’s blunt strike force.
1-0 at half-time seems a sensible punt for Spurs, with 5/1 a tasty price.
