Did Liverpool's performance against Manchester United prove they can be more defensively solid in the Premier League? Aside from the opportunity he spurned, his performance at Anfield was possibly the worst he's turned in as a United player so far.
Managers are forbidden from talking about referees in the build-up to matches and Mourinho would likely face a fine if the FA opt to charge him.
"It was a good game and a hard game at the same time, away against Liverpool, who have been beating the big teams". "You could be hypercritical and sit here and say: 'United lacked ambition and that is not the United way.' However, when I have come to this ground over the years with Sir Alex Ferguson, there was many a time when we have done that and sometimes scored the victor", Neville admitted.
He said: "I respect them all and it showed when we played West Brom. It is good for us to have those games in this period and, if we can come out of them with positive results, it can be the start of something for us this season".
Jose Mourinho predictably set his side up to not get beaten, often playing six at the back and producing hardly any attacks of note throughout. They want a result and we need to find a way to play them.
Lallana's introduction for the anonymous Sturridge just before the hour enlivened Liverpool and Mourinho responded by sending on Wayne Rooney for Rashford.
When asked last Friday, at his weekly press conference, whether he believed Taylor was under too much pressure to take charge of the game, manager Mourinho said, "Somebody with intention is putting such a pressure on him".
The very fact that he was happy to take a goalless draw as early on in the campaign as October, is a sign that we are being viewed as a team to watch out for.
Nobody gave United a chance against a high-flying Liverpool side that put four past Arsenal and three past Chelsea.

"I think we've got a fantastic squad who are ready and capable of challenging". "I've got a lot of football left".
"Then again, I was there in the right position and that is the important thing".
United now turn their attention to the Europa League with a match at Old Trafford against Fenerbahce on Thursday before travelling to Chelsea on Sunday in the Premier League.
