Liverpool dominated Manchester United more than 7-0 game, says Klopp after goalless draw

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his team were more dominant against Manchester United on Sunday than last season’s 7-0 Anfield victory.

Liverpool were held to a goalless draw against their rivals Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday night. The Reds lost the top of the league to Arsenal ahead of their match at Anfield next Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s team registered 34 shots on Sunday, while Man United had only six shots.

“I can’t remember such a dominant performance against Man United — even the 7-0 they were more in the game,” Klopp said. “Now it’s 0-0 they probably feel slightly better than us. But we take the point and keep going.

It was the type of game I expected. If we play like this, it is difficult for the opposite team to get out of their own half and the way United defending was clean with a lot of passion.

If you score it changes the dynamic of the game and they open up a bit and take more risk. But nothing changed, they threw everything in and it’s a 0-0.

If you play in the Premier League with a team of quality like Man United and they just defend, then it doesn’t make life easy. We should have scored and that would have changed the dynamic of the game. The chances were big enough, so we were unlucky.”

Klopp: It’s a tough period

Liverpool next will face West Ham in the Carabao Cup quarterfinal on Wednesday. Klopp’s side is in second place in the Premier League table after 17 matches, one point behind Arsenal.

“It’s a tough period,” Klopp said. “We play Wednesday against West Ham, they’re flying and playing really well at the moment, then we have Arsenal and Burnley.

It’s horrendous. We have to make sure we get enough points in this period, but then there’s a lot of football to play after that too. It’s important we get through this with as many players as possible.”
