Manchester United fans may not have much to shout about this season – they may even see Manchester City secure the Premier League title against them this weekend – but they’re gloating tonight.
Liverpool have just beaten City 3-0 at Anfield to put themselves in a very strong position in their Champions League quarter-final, with the second leg still to play at the Etihad Stadium next week.
That means Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side, who are so often lauded for playing football the ‘right way’, have now let in seven goals in their last 180 minutes played at Anfield.
In comparison, the negative, cynical, unambitious Jose Mourinho has picked up two 0-0 draws.
Slammed for parking the bus away to Liverpool earlier this season, that result doesn’t look so bad now, does it? And United fans are certainly making their voices heard on the matter on Twitter tonight…

To think, Mourinho was lambasted for his tactical approach at Anfield earlier in the season. ????? #mufc

Conceding 7 goals in 2 games at Anfield is just tactical naivety. You would think he’d learn from the first time around, wouldn’t ya?
It’s a notoriously difficult ground to go to – there’s no shame in setting up to stop them then try and beat them at home. José Mourinho anyone?

If Pep doesn’t get nailed for this… He basically did the same thing he did vs liverpool in the league and lost again. That’s why he’ll never win the UCL again.
Mourinho gets hated for going and getting a point at anfield(where pool havent lost all season).

The abuse some Utd fand directed to Mourinho for getting a clean sheet and a draw at Anfield with several key players injured,rather that than lose 3-0 without a shot on target.

Mourinho was hammered for months because of a tactical error at anfield; he drew 0-0.
Guardiola got it all wrong tonight and lost 3-0 without a single shot on target; will he be critisised? Maybe till Friday.
