Klopp questions United tactics while Mourinho rues stalemate

Jose Mourinho

"I think United came here for the point and they got it".

Mourinho said he did not have enough options to play a more attacking game.

"Manchester United came here for a point and got it", the German said in a TV interview.

Manchester United ceded the initiative in the Premier League title race after drawing 0-0 with arch foes Liverpool in a drab game at Anfield yesterday.

Klopp said that while he was disappointed not to pick up all three points, he was pleased with the way his team performed against one of the title favourites.

"Liverpool will be more interested in Arsenal's results - maybe Chelsea and Tottenham - although those two probably think they're capable of catching the two Manchester clubs".

"It's quite hard when a top-class team like Man United has that defensive approach".

"We came for three (points)". "I had to score and maybe we would have won this game". I am okay with the performance - it is not my job to judge the United performance.

ICC gives green light to test championship, ODI league
It will be contested by the 12 full members plus the winners of the current ICC World Cricket League Championship. The ODI league will first have a two-year cycle ahead of the 2023 World Cup.

Just one win in seven matches between the worldwide breaks have left the Reds seventh in the Premier League table, without a win from two Champions League games and eliminated from the EFL Cup following a hugely disappointing September.

The United manager, however, was defiant about his tactics.

"It's away from home at Anfield - a hard stadium and a hard team, so we're happy with the point".

"And I have no midfielder to do what I do many, many times, which is to be with three strong midfielders and then give more freedom to all three attacking players".

By contrast to United's flying start to the season, Liverpool's has so far been mixed, at times being both thrilling and woeful - brilliant going forward, but shaky to say the least in defence.

The injury-enforced absences of Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick did not help him at Anfield but sooner or later, he will have a full hand to choose from and if Mourinho and United are to beat City to the title, he will have to play it. It's not that we play on different planets, it's not that they are really good and we don't find the entrance of the stadium. "The second half was like a game of chess but my opponent didn't open the door for me to win the game".

Describing this match as a must-win game for Liverpool would be premature - they have only lost once in the Premier League this season and are only one point off the top four, after all - but it is verging on a must-not-lose contest if the Reds have any serious designs on challenging for the title.
