Liverpool beat Manchester United because Liverpool are better at football than Manchester United. Decisively. In every phase of the game. That’s just how it is, and Jürgen Klopp’s side showed it today. He was clearly very pleased after the game.
“It’s a big relief”, the Liverpool manager told Sky Sports, as reported by BBC Sport. “I was really happy with 85-90% of the game, we were brilliant. We dominated the game, especially in the first half. The energy they put on the pitch was incredible.
”On a normal day we would have scored three times in the first half and in the second half until 65 minutes we should have been more clear.
”But then United have obvious quality, played a bit more football and we had to defend. There we little mistakes here and there, we didn’t use possession well enough and so the game stays open.
”Then we scored a wonderful, wonderful goal at the end, a really good feeling.”
Everything is good right now because Liverpool are an outstanding football team. Man Utd actually played fairly well today and they could still barely lay a glove at Anfield. Jürgen Klopp’s side are far, far superior to Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side. That’s how it is.
