Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney put his side on the way to a Champions League quarter-final win over Chelsea with a goal at Stamford Bridge

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.

He said: "First, we respect the responsibilities of the government of Nigeria and the territorial integrity of Nigeria". But we have been supporting, equipping, training and when we can provide information.

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'.
