Man United will be better off without Mourinho and Pogba, even if their exits prove costly

Following Manchester United's resounding defeat at Liverpool, Craig Burley slams the club's lack of leadership, from the boardroom to the pitch.
Jose Mourinho was happy with his team selection and has no regrets about not playing Paul Pogba
Jose Mourinho did not appreciate getting asked if he has the backing of the dressing room following Manchester United's loss to Liverpool.

Will Paul Pogba be a Manchester United player by the time United play Paris Saint-Germain in his home city of Paris in March? The French World Cup winner, who sat on the bench as United were outclassed and beaten 3-1 at Liverpool on Sunday for a second defeat in five days, might be United's record signing and the man with the most commercial pull at the club, but he has long been open to leaving, and his coach, Jose Mourinho, would have no problem with him doing so.

Liverpool's win over Man United wasn't a surprise, but their dominance was

What stands out about Liverpool's win over Manchester United isn't that it happened -- they were at home, and there's a reason the sides were separated by 16 points at kickoff -- it's the way it occurred.

To put on a display of this intensity just a few days after a massive Champions League clash isn't to be taken lightly. It's not just a physical thing -- it's mental as well. Great teams can win multiple games in a row against big opponents; doing it while also turning in top-notch performances...

Manchester United sacking Jose Mourinho won't solve everything, but it's a start

Problem of the weekend

In the end, the only real surprise was that Jose Mourinho admitted Liverpool are a better side than Manchester United, rather than railing against some perceived slight or trying some other form of distraction.

But even then, that just emphasises what a bad job Mourinho has done in constructing his side. Liverpool fielded some wildly expensive talent, but on Sunday they also had three players bought from relegated teams: one scored twice (Xherdan Shaqiri), one was singled...

LIVERPOOL, England -- When a manager becomes the subject of ridicule, it rarely ends well; remember when Arsenal opponents serenaded Arsene Wenger with "we want you to stay"? We all know how that turned out.

So only time will tell how damaging it was for Jose Mourinho to hear Liverpool fans chanting "Don't sack Mourinho!" in the final minutes of their team's 3-1 win vs. Manchester United at Anfield. The buoyant Liverpool supporters were mocking Mourinho not only because their team was better in...

LIVERPOOL, England -- Xherdan Shaqiri came off the substitutes bench to score twice and send Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League in a 3-1 win over fierce rivals Manchester United.

Shaqiri, who replaced Naby Keita in the 70th minute, scored in the 73rd and 80th minute at Anfield after Jesse Lingard canceled out Sadio Mane's opener.

Positives

Shaqiri might be the best value signing of the season at £13 million. His impact during a match-winning, 20-minute cameo was sublime. United...
