Romelu Lukaku said he could get at Dejan Lovren — Jose Mourinho

An Eric Bailly own goal halved the deficit but Liverpool couldn't find the equaliser. He was unsurprisingly subbed just after the hour mark.

Liverpool's players failed to recover from a first half in which they were bullied by United, and failed to deal with the hosts' direct and aggressive approach. The Hard Tackle now runs the rule over Jurgen Klopp's men. The defender did have enough time to admire his opponent's work but that was all.

Manchester United and Liverpool have rarely produced a classic in recent years but they give it a right good go on Saturday afternoon.

An outstanding display for the academy product.

GK Loris Karius, 6 - Little to do and even less he could do about the goals. Despite a dominant 68 per cent possession for the match, Liverpool found themselves 2-0 down within the first half-hour, with both United goals originated from a David De Gea long balls won by Lukaku. And there was more. He pulled off two selection masterstrokes for the big one against Liverpool. His long-ball tactics proved very effective against a team that presses high with vulnerabilities in defence. His attitude is phenomenal. But, his final ball left a lot to be desired apart from a couple of fine crosses.

The match finished 2-1 as a booming Old Trafford serenaded the players when leaving the pitch. An even uglier loss for West Ham. Two-goal Rashford was ravenous and Bailly was a beast, with the only blemish being the Ivorian's own goal. But Mourinho is not like that.

Rashford marked his first Premier League start since Boxing Day in perfect fashion with two well-taken goals, his first double since his league debut in February 2016.

"If you're a centre-back and you keep losing headers, you can't play at this level", The former Liverpool striker said on Matchday Live.

He feels the Reds lack attention to detail and tactical preparedness.

The English attacker had to settle for a few minutes at the end of the game, replacing Juan Mata with just a minute of normal time remaining. Later on, his assist for Jesse Lingard completely broke the champions. "It's difficult to say after a game what exactly what it was but as a team we could have done better and defended the situations better". Since the arrival of Sanchez, he has been a more marginal figure on the pitch for United, but was irrepressible on Saturday. Liverpool's best defensive performer. Kept to his task well, though.

There have been glimpses of excellence from Manchester United's forward line, but they have been seldom showings since Alexis Sánchez arrived from Arsenal in the January transfer window. Perhaps still needs a game to get his rhythm back.
