Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes sacking of Jose Mourinho could work out well for Jurgen Klopp’s men

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that the sacking of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United could work out well for the Reds when the two teams meet on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United are yet to lose a league game and are playing a more attacking brand of football.

While that is good for supporters in red side of Manchester, it does offer a better chance for Liverpool to win the game this weekend, according to Carragher.

He said: “The way they are setting up now, they’re really attacking, on the front foot, exciting to watch.

“Maybe that will give Liverpool more chance in terms of space at Old Trafford.

“Whenever Mourinho’s teams played against Liverpool at Old Trafford there was very little space for Mane and Salah, they always found it really difficult in the last couple of years.

“So maybe that might change, maybe a more open game.

“But Liverpool’s record is really poor at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson left so that is something that has to change.

“If Liverpool could get a result there they have a big week, Watford then Everton.

“But Manchester United is the real big one, that’s the one where Man City expect Liverpool to drop points. If they get three points there it will be a little body blow to Manchester City.”

After they play United, Liverpool have a home game against Watford three days later.
