From the two teams' performance, it was quite evident that Jose Mourinho got the better of Jurgen Klopp's tactics, and the fact that all three players on the scoresheet belonged to the home side summed up United's dominance on the pitch.
After the game it was revealed that United are nearly unbeatable at Old Trafford in the league when they take the lead in the first half.
"I would argue that if Klopp's Liverpool team were a little more streetwise, they would have got at least a draw out of the game, but they are too honest for their own good at times".
'I don't think anybody could have had a big argument about the draw. "I still have to work to swallow this one and it's quite hard".More news: Taylor Swift hides Joe Alwyn references in Delicate music video

Earlier this season during United's win at Southampton, Mourinho was sent to the stands by Pawson for encroaching onto the field of play while telling his team to drop back.
"You need to be there, everyone knows that and we trained that of course, around second balls where we had to be - but we were not there". It doesn't work like this.
"In the situations around the two goals it was not like it should be". We don't ignore the goals we conceded, but you would say, 'OK, that's how you have to play.' We had these things in pretty much all moments, but we didn't score. "It feels massively rubbish and that's not nice".
