From the two teams' performance, it was quite evident that Jose Mourinho got the better of Jurgen Klopp's tactics, and the fact that all three players on the scoresheet belonged to the home side summed up United's dominance on the pitch.

The Liverpool winger who has scored 33 goals so far this season beat the likes of Sergio Aguero, Eden Hazard and Mousa Dembele to the February award.

"Eric Bailly was exactly the opposite, he was on the pitch, after the own goal he showed the mentality we want - a fantastic example for everybody". "I still have to work to swallow this one and it's quite hard". That didn't happen, but everyone can see that the way is positive at least. But we knew Lukaku can win headers and when he did, we were not there for a second ball. He's doing a fantastic job.

"We are in a different situation".

However, even without the injured Paul Pogba, it was United who started on the front foot, adopting a more direct style with Romelu Lukaku the target and the Belgium striker was influential in both Rashford goals.

"People look at football, they don't look at what is going on around the life", the centre-half said. Playing very defensive and not being successful just doesn't work.


"We never play for a point."

". They have to get something if they don't get silverware at the end of the season.

Manchester United are now in pole position to finish behind Manchester City in second in the Premier League, with Liverpool having slipped down to fourth in the league table. Obviously they lost one or two kilos but he should be okay. They play a specific kind of football, we play a specific type of football and now everybody makes a big thing of it.

Salah has been named player of the month for February and Klopp is delighted with his summer signing from Roma.

"We need to be a bit more lucky in these situations". We don't live the 'but, ' we live the rest.

"If we can help to bring Mo and Sadio closer to the Ballon d'Or, we will try".
