De Gea and Man Utd hold Liverpool at Anfield

Jose Mourinho

GETTY Jose Mourinho to learn from Arsenal's mistakes against Liverpool

After the away draw, Manchester United provisionally leads the Premier League table with 20 points, one point ahead of Manchester City. Palace had failed to score a single goal as they lost their first seven league games, but Roy Hodgson's side gave their fans something to celebrate in the 11th minute at Selhurst Park.

"For me today, one team who can become champion this year was in our stadium and is not a world apart from us", the Liverpool boss said.

Meanwhile, Klopp's men have won just one of their last five Premier League matches and Carragher thinks they can forget about challenging for outright honours in the league this season.

Asked later at the post-match press conference to expand on his thoughts about Mourinho's tactics, the German, whose team still trail United by seven points, was more diplomatic. But United are a different team with different objectives 12 months on, and this trip to Anfield was an opportunity for them to cut loose and ruthlessly dispatch a Liverpool team that is short on confidence and without its best attacking player in Sadio Mane.

"I don't know if it's as good as the one from Coutinho previous year".

Nonetheless, Mourinho was unrepentant after the game, refusing to accept that his safety-first approach had been unambitious.

"So they are happy and we are not happy". I waited for Jurgen to make a change, go more attacking, but he kept with the three strong central midfielders. "A point at Anfield is OK".

"We came for three (points)".

"I think Man United came here for the point and they got it".

"I never see a player complain "oh, this atmosphere was very strong" - we complain when the atmosphere is flat", he said. Obviously for Man United it is OK.

Having scored four goals four times in the league this season, Mourinho had joked he would play nine attackers at Anfield this time, but it was another safety-first game plan from the arch pragmatist. Liverpool stuck to Plan A. If either side had a Plan B, neither reverted to it and the game ground to a goalless conclusion for the second season running. It was not the case, though, and Mourinho's team did what Mourinho's teams do: they denied their opponent and emerged with something. One guy behind, and we go with a new system.

"We are speaking about Old Trafford, in this case Anfield, like it's a big problem".

"We were dominant, it is a home game for us so we should be dominant". United still lack an out-and-out winger, which is why Ashley Young has returned to the fold, and it is no secret that Mourinho was desperate to add Inter Milan's left-sided Ivan Perisic to his squad this summer.
