Ultimately, Red Monday was sarcastically hailed as a "tactical masterclass" by Mourinho after the fact, but Saturday was an astute performance from both manager and team - it was a fixture worthy of the spectacle of Manchester United vs Liverpool, and United's man for the occasion, fittingly a local lad, rose once more to decide it all.

Marcus Rashford insists he has not been fazed by his spell out of the Manchester United team.

United pulled off an important win in the Premier League on Saturday, as they defeated arch-rivals Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford to further cement their second spot in the table.

United stifled Liverpool's exhilarating attack early on at Old Trafford and raced into a two-goal lead with 24 minutes on the clock after a double from Rashford. Jurgen Klopp's side dominated possession as United sat back for long periods and Eric Bailly's 66th-minute own goal set up a tense finish.

"I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a ideal performance". We don't ignore the goals we conceded, but if you ignore them for a second you would say, "OK, that's how you have to play".

It could be said that the visitors were not at their highest level, but it must be also said that the biggest part of that was down to Jose Mourinho's tactics and United's overall display. We didn't, so that was the problem around the two goals [and] they could use these situations. The most important thing is sticking together as a squad. West Ham's 3-0 thumping by Burnley at the London Stadium was marred by unsavoury scenes as disgruntled Hammers' fans invaded the pitch, chanted expletives at the club's management, and hurled coins at the owners.

"No. That's something that we can develop and we're going to develop with time, with experience and living these experiences together", said the manager.

"Against Liverpool, if you play bad when you have the ball you can quickly be in trouble".

Romelu Lukaku created two chances, which the energetic and accurate Rashford scored from within a space of 10 minutes, in the first quarter of the game.

"I think they're the closest team to be challenging", Sherwood told Sky Sports before Liverpool FC's 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

"It didn't go our way because of the two goals we conceded", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. "Liverpool pushed us to a more defensive situation, credit to them, but we were in control and our full backs they defended very well".

United moved to 65 points and five points clear of fourth-placed Liverpool with the victory. Tottenham Hotspurs had to come from a goal behind to dispatch four past Bournemouth in a convincing win.
