Jose Mourinho felt Manchester United had both “heart” and “a game plan”, following their 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.
The Red Devils led for a large period of the game after Marcus Rashford’s first half opener, but Adam Lallana struck a late equaliser for the visitors.
Former United boss, Mourinho, claimed his successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be feeling “proud and a little bit frustrated” after what felt like two points dropped.
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “It’s hard to say. I think they did something to hurt them, and Jurgen, in the last 20 minutes of the game, he tried to do something.
“He tried to give the team different problems for United to resolve. More people through the middle, more occupation of spaces in the box, more projection of the full-backs.
