Man Utd forward Marcus Rashford starts against Liverpool

Jose Mourinho came out swinging after Manchester United secured a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday, as he insisted he could not care less if people believed his side were not worthy winners.

Despite not naturally being a left-back, the former Aston Villa winger kept the Premier League's joint top scorer Mo Salah quiet throughout the 90 minutes. It was his first start since Dec. 26, having fallen further down the pecking order at United following the arrival in January of Alexis Sanchez.

Ashley Barnes fired the visitors ahead on 66 minutes, prompting a couple of supporters to run on to the pitch, with West Ham captain Mark Noble involved in a confrontation before stewards intervened. Then Lovren fell to the ground in an aerial challenge with Lukaku, whose pass into the area was intercepted only for Rashford to sidefoot home the loose ball. "It's very tight battling for second position and we want to make sure we get that spot" Marcus Rashford said after the final whistle.

But United stuck to Mourinho's conservative game-plan to clinch the points and the Portuguese coach was in typically defiant mood when asked about the defensive tactics.

"It was two really poor goals, and we knocked at the door and should have had two penalties'".


"It wasn't their style that won and our style that lost", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

United deserved to win playing this way.

Wood added insult to injury in the 81st minute when he tapped in after a mistake by Hammers goalkeeper Joe Hart.

"It was a clear penalty with Fellaini on Mane, in situations like this you need the right decision", Klopp said. They defended on the edge of their box and broke the play up whenever they could.

Liverpool had chances for an immediate response as Sadio Mane just failed to get on the end of Roberto Firmino's dangerous cross before Virgil Van Dijk skewed a header wide from close range when unmarked from a corner.


Lackluster in the first half, Liverpool improved and reduced the deficit through an own-goal by Eric Bailly but couldn't manage an equalizer, slipping five points behind United in the race for second place behind Manchester City.

"They might think a change is a better thing for the club, I don't know", said Pardew.

"I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a perfect performance".

West Brom remain rooted to the bottom of the table as Leicester's 4-1 win at the Hawthorns increased the pressure on boss Alan Pardew.
