Last weekend, Manchester United scored a late equaliser against Liverpool after bringing on Marouane Fellaini for the final 15 minutes.

After the game, Jurgen Klopp gave several bitter interviews, criticising United for playing long balls and claiming it “wasn’t football” once Fellaini was substituted on.

This afternoon, Liverpool lost 3-2 to Swansea at Anfield. At the start of the day, Swansea were bottom of the table, having lost six of their last seven games.

With Liverpool chasing an equaliser, Klopp opted to bringing on Joel Matip, the 6 foot 4 defender, and played him up front.

Yes, it took Klopp just six days to revert to the tactics Mourinho used to get a draw against Liverpool. The only difference is Liverpool lost, while United salvaged a point.
