What Jurgen Klopp And Jose Mourinho Said After The Draw On Sunday

You would call it a conflict of words. 

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, said his side played better at Old Trafford, as Manchester United only resorted to 'long balls'.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho said his side played better, pressed the Liverpool side more as they only defended through out the game.

Klopp said: They play 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.  Klopp added.

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," added Klopp.

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

The German believes Liverpool were "dominating" until the 75th minute and, though his side only had 45% of possession, they did better the shot count with 13 to United's nine.

The Reds ran 12km further than their hosts but are now on their longest winless run of the season in all competitions.

Jose Mourinho said: We attacked and Liverpool were the team that defended.

They were clever, added Mourinho. They took their time, they know how to play football and control the emotions of the game.

They knew they would be in trouble in the final few minutes.
