Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool did not play ‘as well as they could have played’ as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Manchester United at Anfield.
“I have mixed emotions,” said Klopp.
“I’m not happy about the game – we didn’t play as well as we could have played – but it’s a first clean sheet, which is all I’m happy about.”
“We started OK and immediately with their defending we weren’t brave anymore.
“We weren’t calm enough, that is their style that is OK you need to have respect but be cool.
“That is not the way we want to play but I accept it we got a point, there are worse things in the world.”
Skipper Jordan Henderson added: “We didn’t play to the level we are capable of.
“We didn’t create many clear cut chances and we could have been a little more decisive.
“I am not sure if it was nerves but maybe we tried to force it. At the end of the day we kept a clean sheet, they came and did a job.”
