Liverpool boss, Jürgen Klopp, has suggested that Manchester United got lucky to win the clash at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The visitors took the lead via Mohamed Salah, but United fought back to get level and take the lead through goals from Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.
Salah then added a second to bring his team level, but second half substitute, Bruno Fernandes, had the final say, as he clinically dispatched a free kick late in the second half to give us the victory, following a foul on Edinson Cavani.
However, Klopp is of the opinion that United’s goal was out of sheer luck because he was told the foul on Cavani actually shouldn’t have stood.
While speaking to the media recently, the German said, “It’s not what we wanted so it’s always frustrating. We started the game well, and then we made decisive mistakes.
“We made obvious mistakes around the goals, and with the third, your colleagues tell me it wasn’t a foul but I didn’t see it. I was told that it might not have been a foul for the free-kick but that’s how it is.
“In the end, they scored three and we scored two but we can take positives out of this game. We know exactly what we need to work on, but we have to make steps. We made big steps tonight, which for the moment is OK.”
This isn’t the first time Klopp would try to come up with an excuse after his side failed to win a game against United. He also blamed Olé Gunnar Solskjaer for coming to Anfield with a defensive game plan, after the draw between the two sides a week ago.
