Yes, that patented Mourinho 6-3-1 formation in big games with four central defenders and wingers playing as full backs.

Seriously though. Forget Liverpool's form or how good or bad their defence is. Man U - Liverpool matches are the most bitter rivalry in English football. Liverpool always "turn up" against Man U. They could send their U16s out against Man Utd and still give them a game. Plus Liverpool now have that dreaded Fantastic Four in attach with Coutinho, Mane, Firmino, and Salah. That is a scary prospect for any defender to face.

Egbon, I am a fan of parking the bus o...as long as there is a good plan of hitting them on the counter. I just need three delicious points from that match.

Matches like these are the reasons I am a huge fan of mourinho. No matter what happens, one thing you are guaranteed is to see an absolute tactical masterclass! To even make it sweeter, the man has 2 weeks to plan it out! :lol: :lol: :lol: I am looking forward to seeing what he comes up with. Remember Chelsea had at old traffird last season? The Herrera man-marking masterclass? :lol:

I actually do not like bus garages. I do not like the "6 at the back" monstrosity he tried last season. It worked ONCE. The other times his team got run ragged by Arsenal and Spurs.

Surprised no one spoke about Lindelof's "performance" for Sweden against Holland. He committed a Sunday football style error. He tried to clear the ball and accidentally booted the ball onto his hand inside his own penalty area! (I kid you not) He gave away a penalty and a goal.

He is really a WIP. If Man Utd wanted a defender with lots of room to improve, they could have just groomed Tuanzebe rather than paying nearly 40 million for a defender that needs remoulding.

We need our top players back from injury, Pogba makes things happen in the midfield, so much ability on the ball

I know this is out of our control as fans on CE, but how would you love to see Man United set up against Spurs next weekend, given current players unavailable and how Spurs has tackled Real Madrid and Liverpool.

I know there's all this talk about Jose and parking buses, but once again i find myself itching for a nice longish bus at Old Trafford :rotf: :taunt: Oloyeeeee !

Tuanzebe > Lindelof

The team fell apart once Jonesy got injured. Lindelof is really suspect. Speaking of Jonesy, I looked away from the screen just before he got injured and overheard the commentators talking about Man Utd needing to make a sub. Without even looking at the screen, I knew exactly which Man Utd player had got injured and needed to be subbed off...

Next week's team should be:

DDG
Tony V-Smalling-Bailly-Darmian
Smith-Matic
Young-Lingard-Rashford
Lukaku

*if fit
Subs: Romero, Blind, Tuanzebe, Mata, Mkhi, Martial, Wilson

Clinical victory for Man Utd in the Carabao Cup over Swansea last night. Youngsters McTominay and Tuanzebe got a much needed 90 minutes. Lindelof should be very concerned by the fact that a rookie teenager outperformed and looked far more composed than him. Tuanzebe's game stats were:

100% of dribbles completed
100% of tackles won
97% pass accuracy


Even Gary Lineker commented that "Axel Tuanzebe looks a real prospect. Confident, quick, comfortable on the ball and real intelligence to his game".

The mystifying aspect is why Mourinho does not give him more game time. Man Utd need to be careful here or they will end up with another Pogba, Pique, Keane, Shawcross, Drinkwater, Simpson, or Heaton situation.

While youngsters Tuanzebe, McTominay, and Rashford are showing plenty of promise. Luke Shaw's career is going the other way. I do not think Mourinho trusts him.

He signed for Man Utd 4 years ago as the hottest teenage defensive project in England. Now he cannot get into the starting 11 of a Carabao cup game where first team regulars are rested. Instead three guys 3-4 years younger than him got into the team ahead of him.

Still he is getting paid 100K a week.

I have high hopes for this kid. Everytime I have seen him, he has convinced me. Mourinho did well to play him as a RB and DM last season, and now at LCB in a back three. These experiences will mold him.

You hear his comments and attitude, and you compare it to Luke Shaw's and you just shake your head. Tomorrow now, my Uncle, OLOYE, will say MOurinho murdered Shaw.

As I have been saying since last season, the best move for Shaw's career is for him to go out on loan (maybe even abroad where he can recover without the EPL spotlight and pressure on him). Right now his first team prospects look grim as Mourinho prefers to play Blind, Darmian, Rojo, Ashley Young (a winger!), and Steve from the canteen at LB ahead of Shaw.

Man Utd:

*are undefeated in their last 36 home games.
*have not conceded a goal from open play at Old Trafford since December 2016 (11 months).
*have not conceded a goal at home this season in the EPL.
*are the only team in Europe's top 5 leagues that have not conceded a goal at home this season.

But most of this is due to how Mourinho sets up the team to defend first.
Remember at some point LVG 's team was coming up with similar stats and fans cried that it's because he does not attack.

By the way i saw that Mourinho has been defending Lukaku and saying that he deserves more respect from fans, i missed the Spurs game, what did they do to him.
Is it justified for Man United fans to be criticising Lukaku.

^Again, its the lack of finesse about Lukaku that incites the critique. First touch of Harvey Weinstein on Dating in the Dark.

With the Chelsea game coming up next weekend, Man Utd should rest Tony V, Jonesy's fragile body, Matic, and Lukaku for the CL game against Benfica today (since they realistically need only 1 point from their remaining 2 games to qualify for the KO round).

I would pick:

DDG
Darmian-Smalling-Bailly-Young
Smith-Blind
Kills-Mkhi-Martial
Rashford*

*finally stops being a teenager today
Subs: Romero, Shaw, Tuanzebe, Matic, McTominay, Lingard, Lukaku

Yesterday's line-up v Benfica gave little clues about Jose's likely tactical approach against Chelsea this coming weekend. Jose left out Tony V, Jonesy, Ashley Young, and Andrew Smith. I think there is a 99% chance that all 4 players will start against Chelsea.

Smith's omission from the starting 11 (rather than Matic who needed the rest more after playing every single league and Champions League game this season) was a intriguing. Smith has been sitting on the bench most of the season and came into the side only because of injuries to Pogba and Fellaini. Why would Jose go to such lengths to rest a player who is the 3rd choice option in his position?

I think this indicates that Smith will reactivate the man marking job he did on Hazard last season when Man Utd beat Chelsea 2-0, and that Young will play on the left hand side. Get ready for Jose to roll out the "Back Six" again and the queue of luxury buses...
