Neil Mellor has slammed Man Utd and Jose Mourinho for their negative approach in the game at Anfield on Monday night.
United adopted a 6-4-0 formation for long periods of the game and showed no desire to attack after the first 20 minutes.
The game ended with them being stuck on smidge over 30% possession — the lowest they’ve ever had in the Premier League era — and only six touches in our box all game.
“United have spent £600m since Ferguson left and still don’t go toe to toe with their rivals,” said Mellor (Echo).
“I think you have to ask questions about their approach.
“It’s not a brand of football I like to see. You expect it from West Brom, not from one of your big rivals.”
Mourinho has been widely mocked for his comments in the post-match interviews when he said we were the defensive side.
Next up is a game against West Brom on Saturday night. WBA are sure to adopt a similar approach to Jose “bus driver” Mourinho, so let’s hope that United game gave us some good practice in breaking them down.
