Video: Jose Mourinho Suggests Liverpool Parked the Bus Against Man Utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that Liverpool parked the bus when the two teams met at Anfield in the Premier League on Monday night.

Liverpool went into the fixture as favourites, having won five of their seven league games in the build-up, and United seemingly struggling to put together any run of form.

But Mourinho’s side managed to come up with a disciplined performance, and ground out a dogged 0-0.

The general narrative surrounding the result seems to be that Mourinho managed to stifle Jurgen Klopp’s free-flowing attacking tactics, but the Red Devils boss has another theory about the game, and insists his team weren’t the only ones playing defensively:

According to Opta and broadcasters Sky Sports, United had just 35% possession in the stalemate – the lowest ever recorded for United in the Premier League era.

But is Jose correct to claim Liverpool played their part in the boring display?
