Graeme Souness warns Jose Mourinho about his tactics for Man United v Tottenham
The Liverpool legend says Manchester United will have to show more adventure against Spurs then they did at Anfield
Graeme Souness has warned Tottenham Hotspur that Jose Mourinho will want his Manchester United side to carry more of a threat on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils slumped to their first Premier League defeat of the season last weekend following a surprise 2-1 loss to Huddersfield Town at the John Smith Stadium.
Manchester United were outfought by the promoted team as Mourinho’s side extended their winless run in the Premier League to two games ahead of the visit of Spurs.
The 20-time English champions scored 21 times in their opening seven Premier League games but Mourinho’s side have only mustered two goals in their last three outings in all competitions.
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has also failed to get on the score sheet since a 4-0 win against Premier League’s basement club Crystal Palace before the international break.
Former Liverpool captain Souness believes Manchester United will be aiming to create more chances against Tottenham at Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend.
“They’ll have to carry more of a threat than they did at Liverpool. Jose will want to carry more of a threat,” Souness told Sky Sports.
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term.
