You are probably underestimating what it takes to coach a team to press in the synchronized way that Liverpool do. At United, individual players like Fernandes try to get it going while the rest of the team is static.What style of play is that then exactly ?
Everytime I have watched them (admittedly its very rare !) their main attacking stratedgy is to turn the ball over then whack a long ball to the wings or push both wing backs high up the field to again cross the ball.
I dont see anything else in their play, long balls, press and long balls then rely on individual talent ...
It is not surprising that a lot of United fans seem to have forgotten what a team press looks like, since we have had reactive, defensive managers since 2016 (or 2014 really).
