    Funnily enough Herrera is exactly the mould of a Mourinho midfielder. He's not small(considering Mourinho's used the likes of Makalele/Essien who are smaller players than him and Alonso is literally 1 cm taller than Herrera), he puts himself about and on top of that he has technique to boot. I think he provides balance alongside somebody like Fellaini as he can cover Fellaini as well as create chances when on the ball, while complimenting the physical nature of Fellaini.

    Yeah he may not be black and bulky but he's exactly what Mourinho looks for in a midfielder imo.

    I think Pogba's fast becoming a problem, but him alongside Ibra for me is where he'd play best.

    Difference is that we're 3 points clear after playing some disgusting opening fixtures.
    Liverpool's problem hasn't been the big games though, it's dropping silly points in games you should be winning.

    Loved Jose calling out Sky Sports in his interview for completing overhyping Liverpool. Put a smile on my face.

    I'm happy with a point and a clean sheet, if we had proper wingers we'd have won. Rashford was dire and Young wasn't much better, I hope Martial was only left out as a precaution because we need him & Mkhi for Chelsea.

    Same applies to you, you assumed you would of kept a clean sheet with our first choice midfield players playing for 70 minutes so I'm assuming we would of scored by then.

    Mourinho 1 - 0 Klopp.
    I believe the score was 0-0.
    Mourinho spends £150 million including £90 million for a central midfielder and he parks the bus and gets one shot on target.

    For me I see that as a good point especially as it was at Anfield.

    I was pretty disappointed to see Young and Fellaini starting but they proved me wrong and were outstanding. I think if Zlatan continues like this then I'd like to see Martial/Rashford at CF with the other at LW which would also give more chances to Depay. Also nice to see Rooney giving back some abuse to the crowd, an angry Rooney could be amazing for us

    Its something to build from as a loss would have been a disaster so although im not overly pleased i'm not sad like I was after City. I don't think we parked the bus though, that's just Liverpool fans throwing a fit because apparently they would destroy us and yet couldn't even score. Valencia was my MOTM

    Football is all about momentum, nobody gave United a chance tonight. A Mourinho masterclass brought us through.

    Drawing a game is never a masterclass, doesn't matter who we're playing

    It wasn't a masterclass. It was stick 11 men behind the ball and hope for the best.

    It's the same tactics that Stuart Pearce used to use for Man City, the only difference is that its with better players.

    United went to Liverpool and had one shot on target. Imagine Ferguson being happy with that.

    What did Pogba, the £90 million man do tonight?

    It's rather strange to see a United team that's spent £150 million on transfers celebrate a 0-0 draw after having one shot on target.

    Remember all those times you said Mourinho was anti-football? Now you have to defend that.

    Hypocrites.

    We got the first piece of the puzzle right, we can defend against teams which apparently play amazing football. Once we get the hang of the counter attack then we'll start winning games

    You can put 11 men behind the ball and repel an attack? Jesus Christ you spent your money well...

    Stop being butthurt...

    and actually we did spend our money well, 25m for Bailey is a steal considering Luiz went for 50m then 32m, 26m for Mickey is a good price for an excellent player, Ibra on a free is a win win and Pogba for 89m is a lot of money for a brand and a quality player who is adapting to the league.

    and you, as a liverpool fan, can hardly mention money because if we start speaking about Liverpools transfer business you'll end up going back to the hole you came from...

    Also shout out to Blind for his Steven Gerrard tribute
