Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has singled out Manchester United midfielder, Marouane Fellaini for praise following the Reds’ 3-1 victory over Jose Mourinho’s side in the Premier League on Sunday.
Goals from Sadio Mane (1), Xherdan Shaqiri (2) gave Jurgen Klopp’s men all three points against United.
However, Jesse Lingard did score for the Red Devils.
Klopp said Fellaini changes game whenever he is on the pitch, adding that it was always difficult to defend against the Belgium international.
“I am very, very pleased,” Klopp was quoted by Talksport as saying after the match.
“It was a good game. A brilliant start, one of the best performances we’ve had since I’m at Liverpool.
“The first half an hour was outstanding. We scored only one but I don’t think anyone expected to score four or five times or whatever.
“How we played was just perfect: we tried to pass in the right areas, we played in behind the lines and was just good.
“Then after half an hour we lost momentum of the game a little bit, they scored then, it was a little bit open.
“It wasn’t as if Man United come completely on top of the game, it was just a bit more open.
“Then they changed and when Marouane Fellaini is on the pitch it is never a good sign for the opposition because these balls are so difficult to defend.
“But we got the dominance back step-by-step and then Shaq closed the game.
“It was really nice and I think absolutely deserved.”
