    Because that's legitimately the only reason you didn't lose this game.

    You played amazing today but we still got at you late on. No other keeper in the league is saving the Can effort, and no other keeper in the world - bar Neuer - is saving the Coutinho strike.

    The difference Lallana makes is ridiculous - if he's not injured and starts the game, maybe it's a different result.
    That second one wasn't that great, it just looked better because he went late and went with a harder technique.

    Fair result, you were dreadful in the first half.

    Mourinho away in a mother****ing nutshell.

    He probably will do the same thing next week too.
    This man is very angry.

    The fact is that we were missing 2 of our midfield 3 and still matched you. That says a lot to me.
    Are we gunna act like we weren't missing Martial and Mhki? If we had their quality in our attack we would have slapped you

    You made a couple good passes through our defence but they were swiftly dealt with.

    Face it, Klopp got Mourinho'd.
    All I'd say is that without Wijnaldum and Lallana, we played an awful game of football. Therefore to get a point against a side like United (even at home) isn't the worst result in the world.

    I'll take it all day long.

    If you had them in your side, you would've been more attacking and played completely in to our hands.

    Mourinho had his defensive gameplay and it worked perfectly. Martial and Mhki were of no use to you today whether they were fit or not.

    If we played Mata and Carrick we would have probably slapped them as well but we would be a bit more open

    If you were more open you would've lost. Not even in question...

    Na, I may get very angry on Sunday, but this was the ideal result personally. I thought you'd probably draw anyway.

    I still think early days with United but you're in need of a consistent threat in attack that wins you games.

    More optimistic about the Chelsea game. Obvious threat is Hazard but they look suspect defensively.
    Zlatan better get his **** together.

    Difference is that we're 3 points clear after playing some disgusting opening fixtures.

    We actually don't look suspect though and Hazard ain't even our main threat, he goes in and out of games too often this season. Main threat is clearly Costa and also how we have the option of going two up top. Moses also is a big threat and how your midfield responds to the Kante-Matic holding pairing.

    You also have us playing a 6 man midfield against your 5 and hurting you guys in wide areas(when you like to camp the middle).

    I would take that result, although slightly left feeling for more in terms of the performance that could have resulted in a win. Herrera, Blind, Valencia were brilliant - the former Bilbao man was everywhere and he might not be the tallest or fit the archetypal Mourinho man but his energy and tenacity is endearing.

    Zlatan and Pogba were poor and didn't take control of the game but that could be down to the strategy yet with Pogba you expect more especially as he was in a role devoid of major defensive responsibilities.

    We couldn't lose today but this gives us confidence going into the Chelsea match.
