While Pogba’s supporters will might speak of a his diligence here when he helped close down the angles where Liverpool’s defenders and midfield might have been able to build some momentum, he offered absolutely nothing in a creative sense and was slow to react to potential goalscoring opportunities on the few occasions when United broke from their defensive rhythm.
It remains to be seen whether Pogba is best suited to a No. 6 position, a No. 8 or acting as a No. 10.
For £89 million and considering his history with the club, you’d have expected someone at United to know exactly what they were getting.
Anthony Taylor might be an Altrincham fan after all In order not to become the story and therefore the focus of the questions aimed at both managers in the post-match press conference, there was a feeling that referee Anthony Taylor would need to deliver a faultless display.
Taylor, who lives a Marouane Fellaini misplaced pass away from Old Trafford and was born in Wythenshawe, says he supports his local team, Altrincham.
His appointment to this match was met by bewilderment, particularly from Jose Mourinho, who suggested it would be “difficult” to referee a match at Anfield when United are the visiting team.
It might be a challenge to believe someone with even a passing interest in football when they claim not to be touched by rivalry when growing up in a city with such entrenched views about partisanship and yet, Taylor’s demeanour was cool and his decision making, consistent. – The Independent
