Matt Le Tissier says Jose Mourinho will be happy to sit back and defend against Manchester City in Sunday’s fixture.
Le Tissier said: “I think the way City are at the moment he’d be foolish to try play against them as ‘you have an attack and we have an attack. They have got the better attack, they’ve got the best attack in the Premier League by a mile in my opinion. I think there has to be a game plan involved [on Sunday] and if that means sitting deeper at home I don’t think Jose will have a problem with doing that.”
He believes Lukaku has done enough already to justify his large fee and says: “He’s got enough goals, perhaps not enough goals against those big boys but enough to justify the money that was laid out for him.”
“However, with Ibrahimovic coming back it does put that little bit of extra pressure on him so last night’s goal (CSKA) was important because then he continued that run, if not then there’s pressure on Jose to put Ibrahimovic back in that team after what he achieved last season.”
“Last season because of that tag people were expecting so much more of him which perhaps he didn’t quite live up to, because of that bedding in season there. I’m expecting him to kick on this season, and he has done, He’s missed a few games through injury but there’s been a big difference in that United side with him in the team. It appeared that United were scoring so many goals more. You can see when he returned to the team they started scoring freely again. You look at that price tag now and think, ‘it’s not that bad really is it?'”
