Jose Mourinho Claims Sky Sports’ Man Utd Possession Stats Are Wrong

Jose Mourinho has claimed Sky Sports’ possession stats for the Liverpool v Manchester United game on Monday night were incorrect, and claimed United’s statistician recorded different figures.

In a classic Mourinho-esque performance, United went to Anfield and played for a 0-0 draw and got it, managing just one shot on target whilst taking the sting from Liverpool’s pacey attacks.

It was a drab, uninspiring affair, with broadcasters Sky claiming that United only had 35% possession throughout – their lowest recorded since the beginning of the Premier League era.

But, in his post-match press conference, Mourinho took issue with the figures put out into the public domain, insisting the real number was 42%:

Ah, good old Jose, eh? He never misses an opportunity to cause a bit of a stir, does he?

What do you make of his claims that United were 7% better off than everyone is making out? Does it even matter, really?
