Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responds to Jurgen Klopp's criticism

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed Jurgen Klopp's claim that Manchester United have been defensive when playing against Liverpool since he arrived in the English Premier League.

United led for large spells of the game after Marcus Rashford scored in the first half but a late Liverpool surge saw Adam Lallana score to hand them a point. Jurgen Klopp is winless in his five visits at Old Trafford with United securing back to back draws recently.

Klopp said, "Everybody is happy when United are playing against Liverpool, they think both teams are trying…they are not really trying. When we came here this year, last year and the year before they just defended."

Speaking after the match, Solskjaer rubbished Klopp's claims, "We set the team up to attack and be aggressive and create chances and I think we did that. You can say that it’s a bonus we made them look at tactics.

"When you get teams doing something different to what they normally do then you know you have executed your plan. But then they still caused us problems second half and we struggled with possession and that was why we were tired."
