Liverpool owner John W Henry’s wife, Linda Pizzuti, could not resist the opportunity to remind the world that the Reds remain unbeaten this season and still top of the Premier League after Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Man Utd.
Marcus Rashford’s first-half opener was cancelled out by Adam Lallana’s strike five minutes from time in a game that appeared to hinge on two controversial VAR decisions; Jurgen Klopp was certainly laughing about it.
However, with Jose Mourinho quick to rub in the fact that Klopp is yet to win at Old Trafford, and with the draw seeing their long-winning streak in the Premier League halted at 17, it would be easy for Liverpool to leave the match with a feeling of negativity.
However, Pizzuti was only able to see the positives as she took to Twitter to reflect on the result.
“Today’s away draw at Old Trafford is only one point,” she tweeted. “But Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League and top of the table.”

And Mourinho was also happy to rub salt into Klopp’s wounds after the match when he suggested the Reds manager was simply bitter at his inability to win at Old Trafford.
“[It’s] Because he never beat Manchester United at Old Trafford,” was Mourinho’s simple reply, before he added: “He didn’t like the menu. He likes meat and got fish, so he was not happy.”
