Carragher Delighted with United’s Offensive Game against City

Jamie Carragher claimed that Manchester United’s impressive win over Manchester City witnessed one of the best performances from the front three up until now. Daniel James, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford were able to destroy City’s title hopes with a 2-1 victory. Rashford and Martial were able to score in the first 30 minutes of the game to put a huge advantage for the Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium. Even though City threatened with a late leveller thanks to a goal from Nicholas Otamendi, City were beaten by a much better outfit.


United have had a mixed run when it comes to offensive football this season. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been at the end of criticism with many suggesting that he could even be replaced by Mauricio Pochettino, who is suddenly available after leaving Tottenham only a few weeks ago. The initial period underSolskjaer was excellent, but United have not been consistent since the start of the season. The team has also been unable to attract a lot of new signings, while existing star players are threatening to leave. In such an instance, United need a lot of positivity that can ensure the club recovers from the downturn. This positivity can come in the form of goals, but it has so far not been the case.

Jurgen Klopp dismisses talk of a rift between Sadio Mane and Salah

Liverpool
boss Jurgen Klopp has indicated that there is no rift between Sadio Mane and
Mohamed Salah. Mane was understandably furious after he failed to receive the
ball from Salah in a goalscoring position against Burnley and the frustration
was quite evident even after his substitution at the closing stages of the
game.

Speaking
exclusively to TalkSPORT, Klopp said that Mane and Salah have forgotten the
incident and everything is fine between them, he told: “There’s nothing left.
It’s something we left immediately after the game. There was a little talk. It
was Monday when we met first after our international break and everything was
fine. Training was brilliant, the boys are fine with each other, they like each
other! That’s how it is and that’s how it was before. Football is high emotions
and the only problem that we have is that all of our emotions are shown in
public – and I like that.”

Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said that the Gunners will certainly not compete for the league title this term but they have the credentials to make another strong push for the top four positions.

Carragher hoping Liverpool sign some players before the transfer deadline

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that he is hopeful the Reds can pursue a quality signing before the transfer window closes next week. The European champions have secured the services of teenage duo Sepp van den Burg and Harvey Elliot this summer but neither of them are expected to feature predominantly with the first-team next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Carragher acknowledged that the club are short in the left-back department with the departure of Alberto Moreno while they may require another creative midfielder in their ranks, he said: “I’d like them to bring someone in. I still think we’re a little bit short at left-back. [Alberto] Moreno’s gone. I still think a creative midfield player [is needed but] the front three is a difficult one for managers and clubs when you’ve got such a set front three.”
