Klopp got the unexpected at Old Trafford – Mourinho


Jose Mourinho was at his game once again last night, after his former team, Manchester United was impressive against in form Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Klopp “didn’t like the menu” Manchester United served up in a 1-1 Premier League draw at Old Trafford on Sunday, Jose Mourinho Said.

Mourinho was happy with Solskjaer’s game plan on the night, as it troubled Klopp, with Liverpool unable to match a Premier League record with an 18th win in succession.


“[Klopp] didn’t like the menu he wanted meat and got fish,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports .

“They are happy playing against opposition who give chances on the counterattack. Of course, United, with the limitations they have at the moment, played a different profile of game.

“They tried to stop the transition, played always with three centre-backs in position, always compact. Liverpool didn’t like the menu.

“Liverpool missed the quality to play against a low block. I have to admit I’m really happy they didn’t win because the other record [Chelsea’s nine-match winning streak to start a season in 2005-06] is mine, not theirs.

“Sometimes they have limitations against teams with the low block. They have fantastic results but sometimes they win just in the limits.”
