Liverpool vs Manchester United: Mourinho’s game plan revealed

Former Liverpool player and manager, Kenny Dalglish has revealed the pattern of game Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho will adopt as the two teams clash in the Premier League on Saturday.
According to Dalglish, the Portuguese will use a similar defensive approach to last season when they played Liverpool.
Mourinho’s first encounter with Liverpool as United boss was a 0-0 draw at Anfield nearly 12 months ago, with the visitors having just 35 percent of possession.
Dalglish is predicting another close-fought encounter this weekend, with Jurgen Klopp’s side expected to take the game to United.
He told Liverpool Echo, “You would always expect Liverpool vs. Manchester United to be a tight game.
“Last year, when United came to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho parked the bus. But it wasn’t just the one bus, I think it was a couple of double-deckers he put there.
“That’s not to give him stick in any way. It was very difficult for Liverpool and [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic nearly got a late winner.
“I think United will come and set up quite defensively, but at the same time they have fantastic frontmen in Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial. I think Jose will try to make sure the pressure is on Liverpool, but the pressure is on everyone when it comes to a game like that.”
