Jose Mourinho felt Manchester United proved Liverpool are not “the last wonder of the world” in Monday’s goalless draw at Anfield.
“I think it was a more difficult game for them than it was for us,” Mourinho told Sky Sports 1.
“We knew it would be very difficult for them to score a goal and thought we’d score a goal to win the match, which we tried to do.
“We tried to start strong in both halves but they are a good team.
“They are not the last wonder of the world like you (the media) say they are but they are a very good team so we had to adapt a little to them.”
“I have mixed emotions,” said Klopp. “I’m not happy about the game – we didn’t play as well as we could have played – but it’s a first clean sheet, which is all I’m happy about.”
Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera was named man of the match and he said: “We did a fantastic job and can be very proud.
“Every player gave everything and this is the way we have to play big matches.
“It’s a fair draw – neither side deserved to lose. “We can take a lot of things from this game but now we have to win matches. We want to be champions.”
Ashley Young echoed his team-mate’s sentiments, saying: “There were chances for both teams but we cancelled each other out “We had chances to win but it’s a tough place to come and we’re happy with a point.”
