Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho said he expected more from French midfielder, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their Monday night 0-0 draw against Liverpool.
The manager has criticised midfielder’s lack of impact in the game, saying “I was expecting more penetration where Pogba was playing.”
The Red Devils defended outstandingly but left a lot to be desired in attack.
Mourinho noted that the Frenchman was relatively anonymous in attack and believes it was part of his team’s problem, also noting the golden opportunity Ibrahimovic failed to head on target midway through the second half.
He told Sky Sports, “Had it been 1-0, it would have been finished.
“Where Pogba was playing, I was expecting more penetration.
“Defensively we did really well, we should have had a little bit more. We had a big chance that I thought Zlatan was going to score.
“It was a very difficult game for us and for them. More difficult game for them than us. We started really well and were completely in control.
“The game was completely under control. We controlled very well the emotions of the game. We could influence the crowd. They were waiting for an easy match.”
Man Utd will be up against a rejuvenated Chelsea at the Stanford Bridge next weekend after Europa League clash at Old Trafford against Fenerbahce Thursday.
