De Boer: It's a pity that Mourinho is Rashford's manager

The 55-year-old, who was heavily criticised for his negative tactics after United's 0-0 draw away to Sevilla in the Champions League last month, has helped the Red Devils register successive victories over Chelsea, Crystal Palace and now Liverpool. Mourinho was booed by the United fans for his decision, which he defended by citing a fear Rashford could have seen a second yellow card.

"We need to take the confidence from this game into future games".

Premier League legend Alan Shearer has claimed that Jose Mourinho's Manchester United should be admired for their performances this season, especially after beating Liverpool at the weekend.

The manager was not anxious about that response, but was unhappy with the jeers for Scott McTominay after he passed the ball backwards during a second-half counter-attack. "Lukaku is one of the best strikers in the world, we needed to be around to pick up the ball, we were not and Rashford could use the situation twice", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp.

If Saturday again raised questions about this Liverpool side's ability, like Spurs, to get over the line, it is not a failing that can be levelled at Mourinho.

United now prepare to face Sevilla in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.

It was only when Mane and Firmino dropped deeper in the second half Liverpool found a higher tempo, but too often out of danger zones.

"We're definitely going to play well because the team knows how important it is, it's been the implication of everything since Montella arrived", Castro added, according to the Spanish club's official website. "Liverpool is Liverpool, it is a big match, it is a match against a direct competition for the top four".

"We managed to score two very quick goals thanks to Marcus Rashford. We didn't defend the counter-attack so good when they had their moments".

"With 2-0 down that's rare that you can turn a game against Man United".

Yet, had it not been for an impact injury suffered by Paul Pogba in what Mourinho described as "the final minute" of training on Friday, there was every chance Rashford would have been sidelined once more. "I'm not upset at all with that reaction", insisted Mourinho before launching a staunch defence of Scott McTominay, who was selected ahead of Pogba for the first leg against Sevilla. I still have to work to swallow this one and it's quite hard. I think we would've deserved a draw, that's a fact, but we don't have it so it's not important. "But you can't cross the line and come on the pitch", West Ham manager David Moyes said.
