Gary Neville insists Man Utd should not settle for a draw against Liverpool:
In the latest Super 6 Class of ’92 Diary, Gary Neville discusses Manchester United’s Strategic approach against Liverpool and the Way Jose Mourinho will look to utilise Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.
I think, to be fair, there should be a level of caution applied to the first 60 minutes of the game by Manchester United.
Anyone who opens up against Liverpool has the potential to be blown off the pitch in the first 30 minutes. They are absolutely outstanding when they have space and you simply cannot open yourself up to those counter-attacks.
What I’d like to see is a controlled approach in the first half and then a clear intent to win the game in the second half.
The idea that it could be like the last meeting at Anfield, I would not accept that. They can never be boring in big games at Old Trafford. That does not necessarily mean goals but being passionate, intense, physical and fighting to win the game.
I said after the last meeting it was not acceptable and it is about showing intent to win the game, which they can do more and more as the game goes on against Liverpool.
I actually think United were too attacking against Tottenham and Manchester City and I hope they don’t go that way this weekend.
What Manchester United fans want is a victory and to see a game plan to win, unlike the ‘do-not-lose’ approach at Anfield. They will not accept it if the game passes by without that happening at some stage.
