Jose Mourinho hinted Manchester United's players are simply not good enough to compete with Liverpool after being brushed aside 3-1 at Anfield Sunday by the Premier League leaders. Mourinho claimed ahead of the game that Liverpool have had luck on their side this season, but while there was fortune in substitute Xherdan Shaqiri's two deflected strikes in the final 17 minutes, the visitors did not deserve anything more than a fifth league defeat of the season.However, there will be little sympathy for the Portuguese's protests as he left 89 million pound ($112 million) signing Paul Pogba on the bench for the full 90 minutes, while 50 million pound summer recruit Fred didn't even make the squad.Victory took Liverpool back a point above Manchester City and a mammoth 19 clear of United, who remain in sixth and are now 11 points off the top four.However, Mourinho insisted United can still qualify for next season's Champions League.
