Manchester United Show Big Improvements Against The Big Six Sides

Rashford's start against Liverpool was just his third in United's last 14 games.

The Reds fell to two Marcus Rashford goals and could only claim one back after Eric Bailly put the ball into his own net.

'Before the game I asked him how many minutes do you have for me? The second one was a reminiscent of the first goal too but here Rashford combined well with the United attack and scored past a helpless Karius.

United's record signing Pogba has been criticised for his performances this season and Mourinho benched the 24-year-old for their goalless draw at Sevilla in the first leg last month. Two big wins in quick succession could mean a great victory against great rival just days after an incredible comeback against Crystal Palace. They could easily have been three ahead at the break when Juan Mata came close with an overhead kick. The most important thing is sticking together as a squad.

There were unsavoury scenes at London Stadium where pitch invasions and mass protests in the stands forced owners David Sullivan and David Gold to leave the director's box, with police brought in to restore order.

"It was a complete performance by us with two different halves, so I think we deserve [the win]".

Said Rashford of making the most of his limited minutes: "It's partly been patience but you have to be ready for your chance".

Matters on the pitch added to the vitriolic mood, with Ashley Barnes and a Chris Wood double steering Burnley to a second win in a week, closing the gap on sixth-placed Arsenal, who host Watford on Sunday, to two points.

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.

United know they need to beat Sevilla to book a place in the Champions League quarterfinals. "Liverpool pushed us to a more defensive situation, credit to them, but we were in control and our full backs they defended very well". Jose Mourinho's side is 12 points clear of fifth-place Chelsea, which played later Saturday.

"My experiences of the past, I understand that's part of the game".

Saturday's 2-1 defeat against the Red Devils presented Klopp's men with only their fourth top-flight loss from 30 outings during the current campaign. Salomon Rondon gave West Brom the lead at The Hawthorns, but four Leicester goals without reply ensured West Brom stayed bottom, eight points from safety. Everton ended Brighton's recent good run with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park during which former England star Wayne Rooney had a penalty saved.
