De Boer is worst manager in history-Mourinho

Marcus Rashford scored a first half double for United, and Liverpool did not have enough to turn the game around in the second half, despite an Eric Bailly own goal.

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.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes you need "luck or help" to get right decisions from officials against Manchester United.

"Maybe they are not in the best shape, but still they win ugly", Lovren told reporters.

Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier once famously declared the only way his captain should leave the pitch before the final whistle away at Manchester United is "on a stretcher".

United held on for a win that sent them five points clear of third-placed Liverpool in the Premier League, although Tottenham can move to within four by beating Bournemouth on Sunday, leaving Klopp frustrated.

"You have to bring the right things on the pitch".

"You need to be there, everyone knows that and we trained that of course, around second balls where we had to be - but we were not there". We would have more points and it would change my life massively.

He said: "With the Chelsea game last week, and this game, we showed real heart and desire to win games". The two situations that lost us the game had nothing to do with their style our our style'.

"It's a very hard game, who can go there and think three points are already in the pocket, it doesn't work". Big rivalry for ages but in the last few years Man United were more successful than us, we respect that.

Nicol said on ESPN FC when asked who is the best behind Guardiola: "Obviously I would go with Klopp".

"He was upset with a player and the same happened to me against Crystal Palace [last Monday] where I was upset with my player and therefore they [the officials] understood that too".
