Gary Neville after Chelsea: Jose Mourinho’s forwards should copy Liverpool’s tactics

Chelsea 2 – Manchester United 2

Man United came within a whisker of claiming a superb win at Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League.

A 96th minute goal from Ross Barkley earned Chelsea a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw.

Anthony Martial scored twice in the second half to put Man United in the ascendancy at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Rudiger put Chelsea ahead in the first half with a free header from a corner.

Gary Neville: ‘Copy Liverpool’

Following the Chelsea-Man United match, Gary Neville recorded his latest podcast for Sky Sports.

Neville took the opportunity to compare Man United’s attacking options to Liverpool’s:

(Man United) need more from the front three, there’s so much talent there.

If you think of (Romelu) Lukaku, (Alexis) Sanchez, Martial and (Marcus) Rashford, they need more from them. I want to see more runs past Lukaku.

I want the two wide players, whoever they are – you see what Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah do for Liverpool, how they make those narrow runs inside.

I’m not saying they have to play narrow but wherever you start, you’ve got to end up in goalscoring positions more often.

There were no runs in behind with intent, there was a lack of quality on the ball. But in the second half, Martial gives you a glimpse.

Neville also laid out a challenge for Man United’s forwards, claiming they should be scoring at least 65 Premier League collectively this season.

Jose Mourinho vs Chelsea

Neville also talked about Mourinho’s reaction after Chelsea’s second goal.

The pundit defended the Special One for reacting badly on the touchline.

Neville noted that Mourinho was provoked by Chelsea’s Marco Ianni, while the former Man United defender noted he enjoys seeing such passion on the sidelines.
