Andy Robertson swung a corner in and Roberto Firmino powered home a header to win the game for the home side.

There was needle at the full-time whistle between Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho.

The Portuguese manager was adamant that his team were better on the night and deserved to win all three points.

“A draw would be a bad result in relation to the performance,” he started. “So you can imagine how we feel with the defeat.

“A great performance and a very, very unfair result.

“Tonight we played against the champions in their stadium. We came to win and we had the best chances to win.”

Mourinho then sent a dig at Klopp as he explained their late disagreement.

“I told him ‘the best team lost’ and he disagreed, but that’s his opinion.

“By the way, if I behaved the same way on the touchline like he does, I have no chance to stay there and I’m out in a minute.”

Mourinho then took a shot at Pep Guardiola, who lost his head on Tuesday and grabbed the fourth official’s board as he was about to display the time added on.

“That’s animated? Or do you want me to take the table with the time from the fourth official’s hands to see what happens to me?

“For some reason I am different, and that is sad.”

Another classic Jose Mourinho interview.
