Don't need reassurance over role at Manchester United, says Marcus Rashford

The encounter with the Reds marked Rashford's first start of the year in the Premier League, and he has struggled somewhat to maintain the momentum he gained from his electric start to life at Old Trafford two seasons ago. "For sure when you have so many chances it is important to be clinical, but we must be pleased with the performance and prepare for Barcelona".

United's record signing Pogba had withdrawn with an injury the day before the game according to boss Jose Mourinho.

You could look at this from several angles. "Even in set pieces, corners, unsafe situations we were in control so I think we deserved it", said Mourinho. Yet, that is not my point exactly.

Olivier Giroud provided a welcome focal point for Chelsea in their 2-1 win over Crystal Palace - giving Blues boss Antonio Conte a hard decision to make as he plans his team for Wednesday's Champions League clash against Barcelona.

"Ours is lacking and our on the spot decisions are lacking in the big, big games - that's where it matters". Yet, things stand like this. Tottenham moved one point ahead of the Reds with its 4-1 win Sunday over Bournemouth. Roma hosts Shakhtar Donetsk in the other tie Tuesday (3:45 p.m. FS2 and, with the visitors holding a 2-1 advantage after the first leg.

That is not bad at all. "Liverpool is Liverpool, it is a big match, it is a match against a direct competition for the top four".

How Lovren, with 35 Croatian caps and 133 Premier League appearances behind him, is deemed aware enough to take his place in central defence for Liverpool for so long is one of life's great mysteries. Yet, United fought back quickly.

Jesse Lingard, a late substitute, also echoed the manager's sentiment. It was similar how important Lukaku was for Man United and how well he played all around the pitch. We didn't, so that was the problem around the two goals [and] they could use these situations.

Manchester United had the ideal start against Liverpool at Old Trafford with Marcus Rashford's double putting the Red Devils 2-0 up at half-time.

Both of these wins were a bit Mourinho-esque.

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress. Something similar they proved again against Crystal Palace, while the Liverpool win was a typical thing for the manager.

He was unhappy that referee Craig Pawson did not blow for a penalty for Fellani's clash with Sadio Mane and also the two defensive errors which led to United's goals.
