Carragher feels Mourinho sacking will help Liverpool

Jamie Carragher has said that Jose Mourinho being sacked by Manchester United will definitely help Liverpool in their weekend’s clash.

“The way they are setting up now, they’re really attacking, on the front foot, exciting to watch,” the former Liverpool defender told Viasport. “Maybe that will give Liverpool more chance in terms of space at Old Trafford.”

“Whenever Mourinho’s teams played against Liverpool at Old Trafford there was very little space for Mane and Salah, they always found it really difficult in the last couple of years.”

“So maybe that might change, maybe a more open game. But Liverpool’s record is really poor at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson left so that is something that has to change.”

“If Liverpool could get a result there they have a big week, Watford then Everton. But Manchester United is the real big one, that’s the one where Man City expect Liverpool to drop points. If they get three points there it will be a little body blow to Manchester City.”

Well, all well said and done Jamie, but maybe you are forgetting that Liverpool battered Jose Mourinho’s last Manchester United team at Anfield and that is what led to him getting sacked.
