Liverpool kept a first Premier League clean-sheet of the season last night against Manchester United, but there were very little positives Jurgen Klopp took from the ‘hectic’ performance.
We dominated possession against Jose Mourinho’s bus-parkers, but in truth created very few clear-cut chances. Coutinho almost bagged from range and Emre Can forced an excellent save from the world-class David de Gea as well, but against a side who were only there to destroy, it could have been plenty better.
“I think we didn’t play as good as we could have played, so that’s our fault,” he began.
“With their man on man defending, we weren’t brave anymore…
“It’s the first clean-sheet. So Yippee – but that’s actually all that I’m happy about.”
Pretty fair analysis. For us though, we missed Adam Lallana massively and would have won the game had he tarted over Daniel Sturridge – whose time at Anfield looks like it may be coming to an end.
