Manchester United spend more money than any other club in the world…
Yet when they’re in trouble, they bring Marouane Fellaini off the bench and fire long balls to the Belgian and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It’s exactly what they did today during the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, in which Liverpool were unlucky to concede a goal in the 85th minute because Antonio Valencia was miles offside in the buildup.
We’d have taken a point before the game, but when you get so close to the win, it’s quite hard to take.
Jurgen Klopp wasn’t especially enamoured with Jose Mourinho’s tactics, and let a reporter know after the game, when it was suggested to him that United were pressing for an equaliser (then win) in the second.
Reporter: “When United where coming on strong in second half…”
Klopp interrupts: “WITH THE LONG BALLS.”

We now face Plymouth on Wednesday, where we’re likely to deploy an Under-23 XI again, before we host Swansea next weekend in the Premier League.
As we’re seven points behind Chelsea now, a win is an absolute must against the Welsh strugglers.
