This period was supposed to be Manchester United's toughest period since the start of the season, but Jose Mourinho has somehow found a way to get a point from Liverpool, though losing to Huddersfield unexpected, and winning against Tottenham Hotspur to remain second on the Premier League table.

"Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp have got wonderful reputations for being attacking coaches,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“But Mourinho is a little bit like [Floyd] Mayweather at times. Mayweather is called boring at times, where he uses defence as a weapon, let's people punch themselves out.

"Jurgen Klopp in that game a few weeks ago didn't feel he could fully go for it, because he felt: 'He's going to do me, I don't want to get done by a Mourinho masterclass.' And I think Tottenham lacked the belief to go for it on Saturday.

"I think he gets into [the coaches'] heads, and has them thinking: 'I can't get done on the counter-attack here, he'll do me'.

“And that's a great coach, to think he can have other coaches spoiling their tactics.
“So in some ways I think he does deserve more respect, his record is unbelievable."
