Scholes: Times have Changed "Parking the bus” Approach NecessaryReacting to Manchester United’s new tactics of “packing the bus”, Paul Scholars said times has changed as a result different approaches are required.

During Sir Alex Ferguson era, United were always expected to attack almost the entire time they took to the field of play.
Scholes: Times have Changed "Parking the bus” Approach Necessary
There have been a lot of criticism levelled at Mourinho after Man United drew 0-0 away at Liverpool last weekend. However, Scholes told BT Sport that:

“I think it is now, probably two, three or four years ago maybe not. I think it is now because of the position they have been in.

“They haven’t been in a position to win the league. I’m not saying they are in a position to win the league now, it’s very early, but to go to Anfield is very difficult.

“You could win the game, don’t get me wrong, you could score goals, but I think that was a typical Man United performance really, he got everything organised and defended brilliantly well and got the point they needed.”

Playing not to lose, rather than playing to win, is a tactic which has served Mourinho well down the years.

He has an enviable collection of major honours on his CV to suggest that his methods should not be questioned.
A stalemate at Anfield may not have been to everybody’s liking, but the result did stretch United’s unbeaten start to the season

Despite contending with a lengthy injury list, the Red Devils remain on track in Premier League, Carabao Cup and Champions League competitions.
They followed up their draw at Liverpool with a dogged 1-0 victory away at Benfica in Europe, with Mourinho’s men now having one foot in the knockout stage.

Liverpool 0:0 Manchester United: Tight Affair at Anfield

Mohamed Salah Hopes to Score against Manchester United

Mohamed Salah would be looking forward to getting at least a goal against Manchester United when they meet this weekend.

If Salah will complete a remarkable record of scoring against all the top six sides in the English Premier League this season.

The Egyptian is the joint top scorer in the division with 24 goals, which include strikes against Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal, with the Red Devils the only side missing in the top-six list.

Sarah, 25, is willing to complete the haul in Saturday’s encounter at Old Trafford.

Recall that the summer signing fired blank against Jose Mourinho’s side when both sides clashed in October’s draw; a tie most remembered for David De Gea’s stunning save from a Joel Matip effort.

“I remember it [De Gea’s save]. I also missed an easy chance in that game, but he is great,” Salah told Sky Sports.
