‘We did not want to, but we got it’ – Klopp and Solskjaer’s estimations
Liverpool 0: 0, Manchester United. The goalless match left no one satisfied. Klopp and Solskjaer estimated the game.
Reigning champions Liverpool in the 18th round of the English Premier League faced the leader of the tournament, Manchester United, and got away with a goalless draw. The game didn’t live up to expectations and was not really the quality of football these teams deserve. The match was evaluated by the coaches after the match.
Manchester United captain Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not really satisfied with the quality of his team play. “This is a good result only if we win the next round. Given the moments we had, we missed the win. However, we played against a very strong team. We started the first half badly, we did not have peace, and we could not order the game. “The team is making progress. Overall I am disappointed not only with the result but also with the quality of the game because I know these guys can do more.”
“If we had won 1: 0, I would have thought that everything went very well. We cannot deny that Manchester United had very dangerous moments. Now this team is in very good shape. My team started very well today, we played great in an attack in the first half, but scored. We missed the most important thing in football. The second half was more open, they had two cool chances, but Allison made a brilliant save twice. “I liked this match. I saw a lot of individual action from my players, and overall it was a good game. The draw is not the result we wanted, but what we got,” Klopp said.
Recall that Manchester United have 37 points after 18 rounds and leads the tournament table, while Liverpool is third with 34 points. It is noteworthy that Jürgen Klopp’s team has failed to score in the last 3 matches of the Premier League and has such a bad series for the first time in the last 16 years. In addition, the Reds have a 4-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League – for the first time in the last 4 years.
