Liverpool had 66 per cent possession and 17 shots, though it was United who arguably had the better chances with Alisson making some crucial saves.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer set his side up to hit on the counter attack and they soaked up pressure from the reigning Prem champions.

Klopp said: “The worst thing you can face in football is you play against a side with world class players and they all defend with all they have, deep in the box and are good in counter attacking.

"With all the things that were said before the game – United are flying and we were struggling – and then to play this kind of game, I was happy with that.

"We tried in the second half again, but you cannot deny United over 90 minutes, not with the counter-attacking threat they have. So they had two really good chances, I have to say, but we had our chances in the second half as well.”
