Jose Mourinho has revealed why he is happy Liverpool drew against Manchester United on Sunday.

The English Premier League game which was played at Old Trafford saw Manchester United open scoring in the second half. This was later equalized by Liverpool to see the game end in a 1-1 draw.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho stated that the draw prevented Liverpool from achieving a record of his with Chelsea.

“[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.

“They can smash opponents who play the way they want to play against. Jurgen, clearly a bit of frustration. Old Trafford is a special place for Liverpool to win but he’s never done it.”
