Loris Karius: 'Liverpool at fault for defeat at Manchester United'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho said he was happy with the referee's decision to not send Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to the stands during United's 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Saturday. "Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important".

"Mourinho, look how hard it is to win when you don't want to", Spanish sports daily Marca said in a withering critique of the Portuguese's set-up. "There are 11 players that start, it's just one of those things".

And Waddle believes Rashford is a must for the plane to Russian Federation this summer, as he brings a different element to his game in being able to carry the ball well - something he believes English players lack. While Klopp was frustrated with that decision, he admitted the Reds had only themselves to blame for poor defending on both of Rashford's goals.

"In the situations around the two goals, it was not like it should be - you can not leave a player alone".

However, with Pogba soon to be back from injury, Mourinho will most likely have to make a courageous decision by dropping the £89 million ($123 million) Frenchman or Sanchez if he is to continue to show faith in Rashford.

The Manchester-born player proceeded to check inside and take out Trent Alexander-Arnold before beating Loris Karius at his far post. The 20-year-old striker was subsequently crowned Man of the Match by United fans on Twitter, after receiving a massive 81 per cent of the votes.

The Spaniard cemented legendary status with supporters for his two goals at Anfield in 2014 - including one acrobatic finish.

"So I had to revive it, recover it with my second touch and the rest of it was quite simple for me".

Rashford has recently struggled for form and fitness with Anthony Martial overtaking him in the pecking order. Of course he was fundamental.

"The last few months it was not happening for him and he was feeling it a bit in terms of confidence".

At the London Stadium, West Ham could face a heavy fine or possibly even a temporary ground closure as a result of their fans' shameful behaviour.

"You do not see what is going on and how well the players are training, how badly they are training".

"He's downstairs now and I will go and speak with him".

With the World Cup coming up around the corner, Marcus Rashford will aim to end his campaign in fine form to be a starter for England in Russian Federation.
