Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at Liverpool's style of play in Monday night's 0-0 draw between the Reds and his United side, telling the media to blame Jurgen Klopp's side for the dull match rather than taking any responsibility himself.
Mourinho's United had just one shot on target themselves as they set up to frustrate the home side at Anfield, grinding out a turgid draw in a highly anticipated clash of two fierce rivals.
Speaking to the media after the match, Mourinho said: "Last season United won here. Liverpool had 14 shots on target and United had one. How many shots on target did Liverpool have on target today? Two [official statistics actually recorded three].
"Two shots on target with 65 percent of possession. You have to be critical of Liverpool. It is their problem, not our problem. I think it was a good performance. It was a difficult match for us and for them and I think we controlled the game tactically and emotionally and it is not easy to do both things here.
"The result I think is acceptable. We wanted more. For long periods in the game we thought that could be possible but we didn't score and, if you don't score, you don't win. But I think it was very positive performance.
"We stopped them playing, but they also did very well from the defensive point of view. They played [Emre] Can and [Jordan] Henderson for some reason and they did that for 90 minutes, so they normally project more players in attack.
"They were very cautious. They kept always Can and Henderson in position. They had only one player behind the three more offensive players. I think it was their intention to try and control us, which they also did well.''
