Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hit out after being questioned on his side’s boring football following their 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Monday evening, according to the Mirror.
The Red Devils had the lowest possession stats they’ve ever recorded in the Premier League with just 35%.
However, Mourinho has stated that the poor game of football was in-fact down to Liverpool.
The Portuguese tactician questioned Jurgen Klopp’s decision to start with two holding midfielders in Emre Can and Jordan Henderson and stated that United had move shots on goal than the Reds.
“Look last season United won here, Liverpool had 14 shots on target and United had one,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“How many shots on target did Liverpool have today, Two? So two shots with 65 percent possession – you have to be critical because that’s their problem, it’s not our problem.”
“They played Can and Henderson for some reason (sitting) and they did that for 90 mins. They normally project more players in attack but they were very cautious,” he said.
However, Liverpool did have the games best two chances saved in incredible fashion by United keeper David de Gea.
The Red Devils take on Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday night before traveling to London to face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.
United find themselves in seventh place in the league with 14 points after eight games. Mourinho’s side are already five points behind leaders Manchester City.
