@flyingwingback for Spielverlagerung:
It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that Louis Van Gaal gave us a tactical masterclass in not only avoiding Liverpool’s pressing, but using it to his advantage too. United are now five points clear of Liverpool, but will also have their eyes on their other rivals, Manchester City, who they are still just two points behind.
Liverpool weren’t quite as bad as I’ve probably made them out to be but may need a little re-think in tactics when they play top sides they looked very easy to defend against. Champions League qualification is now looking unlikely and Rodgers will probably leave at the end of the season if they don’t make the top four.
