Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Watched United and then Liverpool yesterday.
United did their usual start and gave a sloppy goal away and let Chelsea take command. Second half and the other United turned up. They pressed Chelsea and exposed weaknesses in the Chelsea defence. The result was panic for Chelsea while Martial helped himself to a couple of good goals. They continued to threaten more but then in the 6th Minute of injury time the defence went to sleep and gave away another sloppy goal. United deserved to win but must sort that defence out.
In the Liverpool game they were given a fright after Salah recovered his goal scoring form. They were pressed by Huddersfield who were unlucky with at least two decisons going against them. Liverpool are having to win ugly to get results. Just like united had to do over last two years under Mourinho.
Clopp says that tightening his defence has affected his attacking force, You don't have to be a genious to work that out.
All in all an interesting afternoon of football.
