Alan Shearer Praises Jose Mourinho After Liverpool Beat Man City


Jose Mourinho

Man City will not finish the season unbeaten.

Liverpool exerted revenge on the Sky Blues after a 5-0 thrashing earlier in the season on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won 4-3, although Sergio Aguero almost levelled in the 94th minute.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all found the target for the Reds.

Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan found the net for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Alan Shearer praises Jose Mourinho

On Monday in the Sun, Alan Shearer has turned attention on Man United manager Jose Mourinho is the wake of Liverpool’s Man City win.

Of course, when Man United went to Anfield this season, a dull match ended 0-0.

Yet MOTD pundit Shearer now believes Man United’s draw should be seen in a new light:

I think we can all understand just why Jose Mourinho played the way he did when he went to Anfield earlier this season.

Mourinho, you could argue, got his tactics spot on that day.

On a big occasion he nullified Liverpool and refused to let them play their game.

That was his way of getting a result and in many ways he deserves as much credit for that as Pep Guardiola does for his part in a spectacle that had us all breathless yesterday.

Man United vs Stoke

Will Man United take advantage of City’s dropped points on Monday night.

Stoke sacked manager Mark Hughes last Saturday after losing in the FA Cup to Coventry.

Hughes’ final season at Stoke was desperately poor and it was a huge surprise that the former Manchester United legend lasted so long at the Bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are in the bottom three coming into this encounter and the likes of Crystal Palace and West Ham will have heaped more pressure on them by pulling away.

Fellow relegation zone dwellers West Brom and Swansea also picked up points.

Stoke appeared to be looking to bring in Quique Sanchez Flores but the Spaniard has chosen to stay with Espanyol.

The mess at Stoke right now is summed up by the fact that Saido Berahino turned up for the Manchester United game a day early.
