English Premier League: Rashford double helps Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1

Ashley Young Has Proved Once And For All He's A Manchester United Player At Last

"That would let him play the system that worked against Liverpool - and still leave him a formidable defensive platform". Pep Guardiola's side walloped the Ukrainians 7-0 in the second game at the Allianz Arena, the largest margin following a scoreless opening game in Champions League history.

"He trained after [the media] left", Mourinho said. But nothing is decided yet.

FW Roberto Firmino, 6 - Tried everything but for some reason his teammates never seemed close enough to benefit from the few quality touches and crosses he supplied. "But Seville and Brighton are die or live games so the next two are much more important than this one".

Unsurprisingly, United's tactics were hardly sophisticated - defend deeply and in numbers, and hit Liverpool with the long ball - but they worked perfectly, at least in the first half.

Little did he know at the time, things were about to get decidedly worse; if not as shocking as certain analysts would have you believe.

People forget that it's still possible for us to win two big titles this season - the Champions League and FA Cup.

Alejandro Moreno and Steve Nicol applaud Manchester United's first-half display against Liverpool, but explain what went wrong in the second half of their 2-1 win.

Manchester United beat Liverpool on Saturday with Rashford's brace giving them some breathing space in second. After a mini-revival at the turn of the year, West Ham have started to slide back towards the drop zone and, having now endured three straight Premier League defeats, off-field problems could hasten their demise.

Jesse Lingard, a late substitute, also echoed the manager's sentiment.

Key stat: Marouane Fellaini did not misplace a single pass against Liverpool (4/4).

United have won all three of their matches since drawing in Seville, including coming from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 and Saturday's 2-1 triumph over in-form Liverpool.

"Yeah especially the first goal was fantastic with his quality", he told MUTV.

De Boer said: 'It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally he's an English player you want to give him time and he can then make mistakes.

So do United actually play better without the £89million French superstar? "It was a wonderful solution and the fans reacted against the kid".

Paul Pogba was unavailable for the Liverpool game after a training ground accident. "When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best but anything can happen".

The player had a cardiac ablation to correct the condition and said in a statement last November that he was "healthy". "If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn't have happened".

Mourinho was delighted his selection paid dividends. But Mourinho is not like that.

"Classic Mourinho, in fact. He is a good learner".
