Gary Neville is delighted with Manchester United's home form under Jose Mourinho this season and also critcised Liverpool's inability to break down teams at home.

The Red Devils struggled in the league with a lot of draws, particualrly at Old Trafford. However, things have been different for them at home as the 20-time English champions have scored 13 goals in all competitions, out of which 10 of them have come in the Premier League.

Neville, who played as a right-back for United throughout his club career, believes the Portuguese tactician has the squad at his disposal, which can break down teams at Old Trafford to get three points in the league.

"Jose Mourinho has always been a good manager at home and he is happy to sit in and let teams expose themselves, and United's record at Old Trafford is now no defeats in 12 months since City won there," Neville told Sky Sports.

"To me they are looking a lot better than before in terms of breaking sides down and killing off games.

"There's a really exciting battle going on between Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial for that left-side striker role and every time we see the team sheet the fans are asking why the other isn't starting.

"The interesting thing is that one seems to be profiting from the other's work, with Martial scoring again after coming on for Rashford."

Meanwhile, Liverpool have struggled in the last few fixtures as they are without a win since the last international break. They suffered a 5-0 crushing defeat at the hands of Manchester City, followed by draws against Sevilla and Burnely at Anfield.

Neville believes Jurgen Klopp's side's defence is their weakness and believes Liverpool have not moved forward when it comes to improving their defence.

"What we have already seen this season is Liverpool demonstrating what they can do, but also their absolute weaknesses," United legend explained.

"If you think about conceding unnecessary goals and struggling to break down teams at home, they don't seem to have moved forward in that sense.

"They can beat any side on their day a team opens up against them, as we saw with Arsenal, but if you can be compact and not give them space then you can stop them."
