Carragher warns Mourinho
Jamie Carragher has revealed what he believes could cost Manchester United the Premier League title.
The Liverpool legend was in his Sky Sports role for their Monday Night Football coverage. Looking back on the boring goalless draw between his beloved Reds and Jose Mourinho‘s side, Carragher held back his criticism.
However, he did say that Mourinho’s defensive tactics could cost United come the season’s end.
The Special One hasn’t had the magic touch when it comes to away games against the big six.
“I think the criticism will be saved to the end of the season if results in big away games don’t improve and it costs them the title,” Carragher said before Leicester City hosted West Brom.
“Jose Mourinho has always been lauded as the man for the big occasion, but his way of late is not working.
“With the top six now, there are 30 points up for grabs. If that doesn’t improve, they won’t win the league. Manchester City have got six points from matches against Chelsea and Liverpool.
“Somewhere along the line, Mourinho has got to pick up points.”

Schmeichel wants attacking football
Peter Schmeichel was another guest on Monday Night Football. A legend with United, he expressed his disappointment at seeing his former side playing such a dull brand of football.
He said: “I’m as disappointed as anyone else after that game. It was boring and it was a non-event. It might be naivety but I think Manchester United should play to win every game. They should play their style of football every game.
“I know you cannot win every game but I can remember very few occasions where we would change.”
