The results Manchester United have posted of recent show that that Jose Mourinho could be on his way to post worse stats that former coaches David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, according to MailOnline Sport.
If the first season of LVG is ignored, then the Red Devils have had fewer points based on their first ten games.
Van Gaal’s start at Old Trafford shows he led the team to get 13 points at a similar stage in the tournament as he lost to Swansea, Leicester City and Manchester City.
United are still in the top ten but the confidence reposed on the team has gradually declined since the start of the season under Mourinho. Sir Alex Ferguson recently backed the team as the public outcry continued. He named his former club a title contender, despite their current challenges.
On the other hand, the Sun’s Anthony Kastrinakis opines that Liverpool would not be able to win the Premier League with their current defense system. Liverpool crushed Crystal Palace but the game showed that the team still has a lot to do at the back.
“No team has won the title without first building a solid defense. Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United’s triumph started from the back. Arsene Wenger inherited Arsenal’s famous ‘back five.’
“Jose Mourinho’s first two Chelsea signings were right-back Paulo Ferreira and centre-back Ricardo Carvalho. Manchester City based their successes on Vincent Kompany and Joe Hart. Even Pep Guardiola’s first signing for Barcelona was Gerard Pique,” the analyst wrote.
The writer spoke well of Reds need to reinforce or reorganize but the Premier League winning team of 2012/13 conceded more goals than Liverpool at this stage of the season. For some of the cases he referenced, many other factors pushed the title the way of the winners.
