Jose Mourinho told newsmen that he was satisfied with Manchester United’s display away to Liverpool Monday night in a match that saw United having their lowest possession in a game of football for over one year. United stayed back for most of the game and appeared satisfied with the draw to halt Liverpool’s winning run and deny the Kloop led team of full points at home.
It was a match with more than its fair share of tackles and it was the first goaless encounter between the two clubs since September 2005 involving 27 matches between them. Apart from a long range effort from Ibrahimovich, there was hardly any attempt from United. Liverpool started the second half brightly with Captain Jordan Herderson curling a corner to Roberto Firminio who’s effort was well dealt with by David Da Gea. Liverpool started second choice goal keeper who soon gave a pass away to Paul Pogba who flicked an offside Ibrahimovich to end the opportunity. Kloop appeared distraught about the draw and both teams failed to capitalise on Manchester City’s draw to edge up the table.
