Jose Mourinho told Jurgen Klopp 'the best team lost' and takes dig at Liverpool boss for 'behaviour' in touchline spat

JOSE MOURINHO told Jurgen Klopp 'the best team lost' as Tottenham fell 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield.

The Portuguese could only watch on as Roberto Firmino powered home a 90th minute header to see the Reds leapfrog their visitors at the top of the table.

After the match, the two managers appeared to bicker on the touchline, with Klopp seeming incredulous at something his Spurs counterpart had said.

And speaking to Amazon Prime video, Mourinho, 57, revealed: "I told him the best team lost.

"He disagreed but that's his opinion. By the way, if I behave on the touchline the same way he does, I have no way to stay there and I'm out one minute after.

"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's sad."

Klopp, however, insisted that his team did deserve to win, but was keen to offer his compliments to 'counter-attacking monster' Spurs.

He said: "I think it was a really good game against a top side which is a counter-attacking monster.

"You lose one ball and there's an 80 per cent chance it will end up in your own box.

"It was absolutely deserved. What a wonderful goal, sensational header from Bobby.

"Spurs is 100 per cent one of the favourites with the quality they have and the way they play. They will be there until the end of the season."

Liverpool now sit atop table with 28 points from their opening 13 games, while Spurs are three points back in second on 25.
