Marcus Rashford insists Jose Mourinho doesn't need to explain prolonged absence

Marcus Rashford's double put the Red Devils ahead by half-time but Liverpool were gifted a lifeline in the second half when Bailly's botched clearance ended up beating David De Gea.

After the game it was revealed that United are nearly unbeatable at Old Trafford in the league when they take the lead in the first half.

Jurgen Klopp's touchline antics at Old Trafford on Saturday have received the unexpected support of Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho.

"You know why? Well we might not win the league this year, but everybody loves watching them play, I love watching them play".

"The two goals made the game not easy, we had a lot of okay moments, two good moments in the first half where we could finish better".

"Second place may now be out of reach as United have a five point advantage that may be hard to drag back, but does that mean the winners of the game yesterday are a better team".

Rashford was the local boy who had just scored a quite superb...

Liverpool found themselves two goals down at half-time after two goal-kicks that were won superbly by Romelu Lukaku were twice punished by Rashford.

"In the situations around the two goals, it was not like it should be - you can not leave a player alone", assessed Klopp.

"We have to defend these situations better", Klopp told Sky Sports News after the game.

Two goals from Kenedy, on loan from Chelsea, and a Matt Ritchie strike were enough for a second successive Premier League home win for Rafael Benitez's side.

Swansea City, who had Jordan Ayew sent off in the 11th minute, held Huddersfield Town to a 0-0 draw at the John Smith's Stadium while Wayne Rooney's penalty miss mattered little as Everton beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at Goodison Park.
