Predicted: Manchester United Will Apply Defensive Tactics against Liverpool
Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish expects Jose Mourinho to apply defensive style when Manchester United visit Anfield on Saturday (14/10/2017) Lapaksbobet.com.
Manchester United appear prolific in the Premier League this season, they created 21 goals from seven games. Currently, the Red Devils lost only one goal difference from Manchester City who leads the standings.
However, Dalgish believes United will return to their more conservative style against the attacking Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp. Mourinho is likely to repeat last season’s strategy when the game ended in a goalless draw at Merseyside.
“Three years ago Jose took Chelsea to do their (enduring) duty and they did very well. So I do not blame him because Liverpool failed champion. He is very professional, neat and you can not criticize him (because of his survival), “Dalgish told mirror.co.uk (12/10).
“He returned to Anfield with Manchester United last year with a similar philosophy. There is no rule that says you can not play defensive and they almost won when Zlatan Ibrahimovic got a chance. ”
Manchester United’s first heavy opponent
Manchester United did a good start in the first seven Premier League matches this season. But the away game to Anfield will be a real test of course considering the Red Devils have not met a heavy opponent before. For that reason, Dalglish suspects Mouriho will not risk attacking.
“And when he came back for this match, I’m sure he’ll be careful because this is United’s first game against one of the top six clubs.”
“In relation to other Premier League teams, this will probably determine who will lift the trophy in May.”
“Mourinho has the ability to know how to win the game and if he thinks the best chance is to close the meeting (hold) he is entitled to do that. But for us, Jurgen Klopp will be a complete opponent for him, ”
Liverpool appear less convincing before the international break, they only got one victory from the last five games – the last two games draw against Spartak Moscow and Newcastle United. (Source: fourfourtwo.com)
