Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

On Sunday afternoon, perhaps the worst United side in living memory lined up against arguably the best Liverpool side in living memory, and most certainly the best side in the Premier League era. With Mohamed Salah unavailable through injury, Sadio Mané was positioned on the right of Liverpool’s 4-3-3, and Divock Origi on the left. Conceptually, even without Salah, these two forwards were supposed to operate inside United’s wingbacks, and attack the spaces outside of the centre-backs. From this, it …

The Reds return from the international break facing one of their biggest matches in any season, but this one has a different feel to it than many that have taken place before it.

Victory at Old Trafford More Significant Than 2009?

Victory at Old Trafford More Significant Than 2009?

Liverpool's 4-1 win at Man United in 2009 remains my favourite-ever away win by the Reds, in any competition. Having started supporting Liverpool in 1994, it took until December 2000 to even see them prevail at Old Trafford, as Danny Murphy scored the only goal. He went on to do that twice more in the next three and a half years, during the only golden spell away to United in the last 25 years. While those trio of 1-0 victories …

Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

January 24th, 1999. It’s a Sunday afternoon that still fills me with horror, and always will. I was turning 12 years of age the following day, and with Sky Sports still not a part of my household, my Dad took me to the pub to watch Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Man United, as a pre-birthday treat. Not only did we miss Michael Owen head the Reds into a very early lead at Old Trafford (the traffic in …
