Following Manchester United’s 0-0 draw against Liverpool last month, there was plenty of talk about the tactics Jose Mourinho employed.
The truth is, both sides created one good chance each, with David de Gea making a fantastic save to deny Matip, and Romelu Lukaku fluffing his opportunity.
Yet Mourinho has faced plenty of scrutiny while Jurgen Klopp has escaped without too much criticism. When you consider United are currently second in the table, seven points ahead of Liverpool, it’s puzzling as to why Mourinho is the one getting it in the neck.
Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, has launched a scathing attack on the scousers.
It’s hard to figure out Liverpool at the moment. It’s hard to get excited about them. To me, they are going nowhere fast.They’re neat and tidy, but defensively… come the end of the season when the prizes are being given out, Liverpool will be nowhere near them. If Liverpool were playing out in my back garden, I wouldn’t watch them. They’re just drifting. Drifting nowhere.
