Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Gary Neville, Jose Mourinho, Roy Keane, Graeme Souness give Old Trafford verdict


Liverpool were lucky to escape with some time after beingoutworked by Manchester United, according to the Super Sunday panel.
Jurgen Klopps side saw their lead on top of the Premier League table trimmed after having to come from behind to draw 1-1 at Old Trafford with United.
By playing with a strength so frequently lacking this year, the group leaders were hauled by united to some garbage, also Graeme Souness admitted his former side had been fortunate to come out with a purpose.
He told Sky Sports:I thought Liverpool got off with it now, but you have to give attention to Manchester United because during that first half, they worked his socks off. They didnt let Liverpool to get into the game at all.
Their midfield is famous for their work-rate however they were outworked and bossed in there now. Overall, I think that the outcome is fair if you inspect the stats.
But United will take a good deal from it. They turned up today – a risk was carried by them and they seemed organised.
Salah was outside and Manchester United did a fantastic job in their full-backs, except for the objective. For a lot of their players did not turn up but Liverpool have surely got out with one now.
Liverpool have a midfield that will outwork anybody, but they have outworked in the first half thats very unusual.
When they get to the last , they havent got any cuteness from the midfield but the things they do need is workaholics, with Fabinho, both Henderson and Wijnaldum.
Thats why they huffed and puffed for big intervals now as United sat so deep. Its very harsh to be overly critical about the Liverpool midfield.
While United needed the point more than Liverpool, a win from their competitors and Premier League leaders might have made a significant difference.
In the short term, the additional two things could have lifted Ole Gunnar Solskjaers negative to in the table instead of 13th, while a triumph that few people beyond Old Trafford seriously anticipated would have been the spark required to kickstart their season and lift morale among the group and fans.
Former United manager Jose Mourinho was amazed by how his successor set up to nullify the danger of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane with the effective use of somelow block.
I feel like Liverpool have some limitations if they come up against groups with reduced blocks, he told Sky Sports. They have excellent benefits but sometimes they win only in the constraints.
Sometimes they smash opponents that perform how that they want to play , but obviously theres a little bit of frustration for Jurgen. At Old Trafford, which is a unique spot for Liverpool to win, he has never done it.
I really believe he did not enjoy the menu. He likes meat, and fish was obtained by him.
He wasnt happy, and theyre obviously much stronger playing with a side who gives them opportunities on the counter-attack and on the transition, however, United now play with a different profile.
They strive to be strong at the back and they maintained the three centre-backs compact and solid with all the midfield. They didnt enjoy the menu.
Solskjaer is the manager with both encounters finish in a draw, Klopp has faced in the Premier League and failed to beat.
Roy Keane told Sky Sports:It definitely helps, and the manner of the operation was great. We wondered if it would be a negative set-up and looked in the system, but it turned out to be positive. However, the key for Ole is really to kick on from here.
Its quite simple to raise your match for this sort of game, with the United fans behind you from Liverpool, but its now exactly what they do over the upcoming few months. They need to kick on and get some type of momentum to a run and the season.
But now will have been a major boost for them.
I think both managers will be happy with the lure. The pressure has been building from Liverpool, and obviously their lads are speaking seriously about themselves, however I believe you need to give a bit of charge now to United.
They got the first goal and then were permitted to sit , but they have a little bit sloppy. United lacked a bit of composure.
With Liverpool, in case you are talking about winning titles, you are talking about amassing points when you play badly, and that is exactly what they did.
United go at the Europa League, before a trip on Sunday.
Gary Neville stated:Clearly theyre about to go and perform away from home – that they play with Belgrade, Norwich, Chelsea and Bournemouth.
I feel this team is appropriate for counter-attacking and playing away from home, only the way they setup only generally.
They have fought when teams have sat them off like Liverpool did today. Martial, Rashford and james need distance, so the away games may suit them – but they need to go and win at Bournemouth and at Norwich.
On the Europa League, I truly be concerned about the way this squad will deal with playing four matches apart in 10 days when you look at the bench today – there were young boys around there now.
Therell be creeks along the way and they can not afford to drop their best players – the league has to be the priority
