The Football Spin featuring Shaqiri going big, Mourinho thinking small and Roy Keane the influencer
It may not have been a decisive moment in the title race, but it seemed like an important one in the history of Manchester United.
Shaqiri's goals may have made the difference at Anfield, but, as they moved back to the top of the Premier League, what did his signing say about Liverpool's approach this season?
When Liverpool needed something new, they sent for Shaqiri who unpicked Manchester United. Jose Mourinho's side on the other hand didn't have that variety.
On The Football Spin, Paddy McKenna and Dion Fanning are joined from Anfield by Melissa Reddy to discuss Liverpool's title challenge, the transfer decisions that have allowed it and where they go from here.
Melissa also discussed the strange approach of Mourinho and if this was a decisive moment in his time at the club and how they do not appear to be a club united. Dion, meanwhile, says the game on Sunday was the future versus the past.
Roy Keane offered clear solutions to United's problems but is he able to accept that United aren't the club he played for. Were Gary Neville and Keane right to take issue with Jesse Lingard's launch of clothing range or is this just a complaint of the proper football man?
