Jose Mourinho felt that his Manchester United team proved that Liverpool are not ‘the last wonder of the world’ as they held them to a goalless draw at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been touted as title challengers after eye-catching wins at Arsenal and Chelsea but they were frustrated by United in a drab contest.
“I think it was a more difficult game for them than it was for us,” Mourinho told Sky Sports 1.
“We knew it would be very difficult for them to score a goal and thought we’d score a goal to win the match, which we tried to do.
“We tried to start strong in both halves but they are a good team.
“They are not the last wonder of the world like you (the media) say they are but they are a very good team so we had to adapt a little to them.”
Liverpool had the better chances but Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho were denied by fine David de Gea saves as the sides cancelled each other out for the first time in five years.
