Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Liverpool were the better team against Manchester United. The Red Devils drew their seventh game of this season as they played out a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. James Milner scored for the Reds while Zlatan Ibrahimovic was on target for the home side.

United came into the game on the back of a six-match winning streak in the Premier league while Liverpool had failed to win their previous three matches. Mourinho unleashed a strong United side with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line.

Liverpool were plagued by injuries with Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne missing the game. Philippe Coutinho, who recently recovered from an injury, was introduced much later by the German gaffer.

Klopp said, “They played long balls in a wild game. We played the better football and had the better plan.

“When you see the line-ups and our circumstances, we had lots of little issues, you say ‘a point at Old Trafford – let’s take it and go home.’ Of course it now doesn’t feel like that because of the performance of my boys.

“In the end period of the game when United started playing long balls – to Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – after 80 minutes high intense football it is really hard

“Usually you can accept a draw at Manchester United but I think after the entire 98 minutes we could have deserved a win.”
