Sadio Mane and Divock Origi were also substitutes as Klopp gave starts to Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, with the Old Trafford clash coming a week on from these two sides battling out a dreary goalless draw at Anfield in the league.

"So trying to win a Premier League, that is without a dominant team, has to be United's sole ambition now".

During the 2019-20 campaign, the 28-year-old England worldwide made nine starts and 13 substitute appearances in the league for the Red Devils, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

'I'm happy cause we win nothing more.

'I work a lot on those type of goals, this one was good. "When you leave him out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance", said the Red Devils boss.

West Brom are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment and have scored just 15 goals on 19 matches.

Mellor lavished praise on Fernandes, who he feels not only brings goals and assists to Manchester United, but also a galvanising element.

The Red Devils are now two points clear at the top of the league, although neighbours Manchester City, who are in second place, have a game in hand.

West Bromwich Albion have informed Manchester United that they want to sign Jesse Lingard on loan in the January transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.
