Gary Neville wants Manchester United forwards to learn from Liverpool
Gary Neville challenges Manchester United forwards Anthony Martial and Co to learn from ‘what Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah do for Liverpool’
- Gary Neville thinks Manchester United’s attackers need to change how they play
- The ex-United captain believes they should learn from Sadio Mane and Mo Salah
- He challenges Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to make more runs inside
Gary Neville believes Manchester United will improve significantly if their forwards start to play like their Liverpool counterparts.
Former United captain Neville thinks the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should take inspiration from Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
Mane and Salah have become two of the Premier League’s most prolific marksmen by frequently running inside and beyond Liverpool’s No 9, which is usually Roberto Firmino.

Neville wants United’s wide attackers to do likewise and run beyond chief frontman Romelu Lukuku more often.
‘They need more from the front three, there’s so much talent there,’ Neville told Sky Sports. ‘If you think of Lukaku, Sanchez, Martial and Rashford… they need more from them.
‘I want to see more runs past Lukaku. I want the two wide players, whoever they are… you see what Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah do for Liverpool, how they make those narrow runs inside.
‘I’m not saying they have to play narrow but wherever you start, you’ve got to end up in goalscoring positions more often and you’ve got to show that little bit of quality and composure in the final third.’
Martial scored twice in the second half of United’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Saturday.
But Neville was disappointed with how his former side performed for much of the match at Stamford Bridge.
He explained: ‘I thought in the first half, there was an absolute gulf in the quality of the wide players — between Eden Hazard and Willian and Rashford and Martial.
‘But in the second half, Martial gives you a glimpse. He shows you what he can do and Rashford does that as well but they’ve got to perform consistently.’
