Top Manchester United fan Mark Goldbridge believes that Liverpool are a better team than Manchester United – even with a two-man disadvantage.

The Reds were reduced to nine men in their controversial 2-1 defeat against Tottenham on Saturday evening, and still put in a spirited display.

Speaking on his show, talkSPORT’s Goldbridge agreed with a fan’s claim that nine-man Liverpool are better than his beloved United as a result.

“There’s a lot of teams better than United but it’s a big statement to say that Liverpool with nine men are better than United with 11.

“But it is true, United don’t have an identity, they don’t have players that want to play football and they don’t really seem to know how to do it.

“I don’t really blame the manager, I don’t think [Jurgen] Klopp or Pep [Guardiola] or [Roberto] De Zerbi even as a trio would get United playing better football because I don’t think they’ve got the IQ to do it in the final third, they just haven’t.

“That’s why a team with nine men all working together as a team, as one purpose, can do what Liverpool did which is almost the impossible.”
