Dalglish expects United to park bus at Anfield
MANCHESTER United have scored 21 goals in their opening seven Premier League games but former Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish believes they will take a more defensive approach at Anfield tomorrow.
United are second in the Premier League behind Manchester City on goal difference while Liverpool sit seventh after a mixed start to the season.
Despite leaking 12 goals, Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool have shown plenty of attacking flair and Dalglish feels United’s defence will exercise caution.
“You would always expect Liverpool v Manchester United to be a tight game,” Dalglish said.
“Last year, when United came to Liverpool, Jose Mourinho parked the bus. But it wasn’t just the one bus, I think it was a couple of double deckers he put there.
“That’s not to give him stick in any way, it was very difficult for Liverpool and (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic nearly got a late winner.
“United will come and set up quite defensively, but they have fantastic front men in Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.”
Dalglish praised Liverpool’s new signing Mohamed Salah for his early impact. The Egyptian forward has scored four goals and formed a good understanding with his fellow forwards.
“Mo Salah has been the most exciting signing of the summer for Liverpool. He’s really quick, he takes it up to people and they start to panic.” – Reuters
