A significant number of football fans believe so, judging by comments on social media, with Mourinho’s men only enjoying 35 per cent possession at Anfield - their lowest figure in a Premier League match since Opta’s records began in 2003.
United failed to seriously test the nervy-looking Loris Karius in the Liverpool goal, while David de Gea pulled off two superb saves in the second half to effectively secure the visitors a point.
Sky Sports, in their closing statement, described the draw as a “Mourinho masterclass”, indicating the Portuguese tactician had succeeded in his job to stifle and frustrate the home side in their own back-yard.
This opinion was shared, you suspect, by a large number of their viewers.
Mourinho blames Liverpool for boring match
But Mourinho believes there’s only team to blame for the dull 90 minutes - and it wasn’t his.
"Two shots on target with 65% of possession, you have to be critical of Liverpool,” Mourinho told the media, per Richard Jolly, in his post-match press conference. “It is their problem, not our problem."
Mourinho also criticised the media for believing that Liverpool are an attacking team and an attacking team only.
“You like to say they are the last wonder of the world in attacking football but they also defend and like to think defensively,” he added.
