At full-time, pundits and Jamie Redknapp argued over whether the draw is a good result for the Reds or if they have instead dropped two points.

Klopp is adamant that it’s a point gained as he told Sky Sports: ‘We should have won the game – that’s clear. We caused a few problems for ourselves.

‘We controlled the game, scored first and should’ve had other goals. They had no shots in the first half. But we made a mistake and they used that immediately – it was well executed from Bruno Fernandes.

‘Then the stadium is coming and they score another screamer. A wonderful goal. But we found a way back in the game. We had big chances before they scored and after they scored. It’s a point at Manchester United.

‘I know how people will see it – two points lost but we have a point more than we had before the game in an away game at Manchester United. These games are more special for us than other teams. They put an extra shift it.

‘I know the outside world will get nervous but we have to be calm – it’s going to be full of life, excitement and desire. The goals we have scored have got us where we are. We need to build on that. We’re deal with that in the right way.

‘I’m not over the moon but it’s OK. You take what you get. If we were more clinical then we could’ve won here. The team that wins the league deserves it – that means it’s really difficult. We are in that race. And I’m fine with it.’

‘For Liverpool, they should have won the game,’ Keane said. ‘But that point might be crucial come the end of the season. They were behind with five to 10 minutes to go at Old Trafford where it is never easy.

‘I’m sure Jurgen Klopp will have mixed emotions. He will be delighted with his side’s performance but they gifted United a way into the game.

‘In the end, they clawed their way back for a draw and that could be vital at the end of the season.’

Redknapp added: ‘Man Utd will be delighted with a point but Liverpool on the hand, they should have been 3-0 up at half time. They had so many chances. They dominated the match.

‘It’s certainly two points dropped. They will be furious because it is a game they had so much control in. At the end, they tried to muster something and it would have been a massive three points if they could have got it.

‘But you can see in the faces of the players, they are dejected right now. it’s a game they should have won.’
