Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that his side lost 3-1 to Liverpool on Sunday, because the Reds are a better team.
Sadio Mane gave the hosts the lead, before Jesse Lingard pounced on Alisson Becker’s error to equalize.
Jurgen Klopp introduced Xherdan Shaqiri from the bench and the Swiss forward scored twice to secure victory and ensure they return to the top of the Premier League.
“They had a strong team. They showed they had the stronger team. It’s hard to accept the way the goals happened. We couldn’t cope with their fantastic intensity in the first 20 minutes, after that we were calm.
“If you want to speak about fortunate then you speak about their second and third goal. Our goal was the result of a good action. Their keeper made what I call a half mistake,” Mourinho told Sky Sports afterwards.
