Drawing away from home isn’t exactly the achievement that any United supporter should be celebrating like it’s Christmas as our last 2 visits to Anfield were perfect wins. But a solid performance is a solid performance. Mourinho was playing into Klopp’s game and it worked well, nevermind poor ball positions at 35% (the figure which Mou denies), currently the lowest in the league, when we have 99% but we can’t even shoot and trouble opposition’s goalkeepers presented by the previous manager.
On our best performers; it’s important to note, should Ibrahimovic converted his chance, which he usually does, we would take home full points. It apparently just wasn’t his night. Meanwhile Herrera was a commanding boss at deep midfield with man of the match performance and his Spaniard fellow David De Gea also pulled incredible saves, taking away 2 points from the side who currently have the time of their life.
Like Mourinho said it best:

The lads try hard, throw endless attacking creativities, and show never give up attitude against Mike Phelan’s stubborn 10 man defence Hull. At the end, our young Marcus Rashford delivered the goal at “Fergie time”. What a game.
It’s hard to pick a man of the match but Dailey Blind was again calm and composed protecting De Gea while his partner Eric Bailly show again why Mourinho signed him. Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia were outstanding at full backs. Rooney and Ibrahimovic had a decent game as well.

What a header by Ibrahimovic after a superb Wayne Rooney’s pass that creates the first home goal of the season. The Swedish legend stole the show from Paul Pogba after scoring both of the goals in a chill summer night in Manchester.
Update: The video predictably has gone from YouTube. But thankfully the official site has posted their own well-edited highlight video to promote MUTV subscription.
