Kevin De Bruyne scored in both legs as Manchester City beat Paris St Germain in the quarter-final

Jurgen Klopp revealed his starting XI for the huge Premier League game against Man United on Saturday and fans are stunned that he has dropped Jordan Henderson.

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

Liverpool FC are aiming to at least finish in the top four this season after they ended up in fourth place in the table last term under Klopp.

Marcus Rashford scored United's goals after Romelu Lukaku overpowered Dejan Lovren to bring down long balls up the pitch, and Klopp felt his team should have been more resilient at the back. They left it looking rather shakier.

Mourinho added: "I think Martin Atkinson, after so many years of this, I think made the right decision". We would have more points and it would change my life massively.

Stormy Daniels' lawyer: Trump missed deadline for offer to return nondisclosure money
Following initial reports of Cohen's payment to Daniels, Cohen said Trump "vehemently denies" any affair. She taped an interview with CBS News' 60 Minutes programme last week that has yet to be aired.

But away from the field, Rashford, who admits he is "more comfortable in the middle", does not feel the need to express any frustration to Mourinho. We don't ignore the goals we conceded, but you would say, 'OK, that's how you have to play.' We had these things in pretty much all moments, but we didn't score.

"In the situations around the two goals it was not like it should be".

"We have to defend these situations better", he said. "You can always lose a header or a challenge with Lukaku of course but there is a gap in behind and we need to close that", he said. We are under pressure whether we are ahead of United or five points behind'.
