Kenny Dalglish asks Liverpool to be wary of Mourinho’s strategy
Former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has warned Liverpool to anticipate Jose Mourinho’s bus parking tactic when hosting Manchester United in a Premier League match at Anfield Stadium on Saturday (14/10/2017).
Jose Mourinho is known as a manager who likes to apply bus parking tactics. The Portuguese manager considers the end result is more important than the way the game is shown on the pitch.
Tactics are also applied when he met the Reds in the 2017-18 season. At that time, both games ended with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford and at 0-0 at Anfield.
“You will always expect Liverpool match versus Manchester United will be a tough game,” said Dalglish.
“Last year, when Manchester United came to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho used the bus parking tactic.”
“I think Manchester United will come and focus on defense but at the same time they have fantastic strikers like Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial I think Jose Mourinho will try to ensure his pressure on Liverpool.
Liverpool need a victory to continue to mengatrol their position in the standings. Currently, they occupy seventh position with a collection of 12 points, seven points behind Manchester City and Manchester United who are in the top position.
