Man United 2-1 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp's touchline antics at Old Trafford on Saturday have received the unexpected support of Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho.

Lingard meanwhile has enjoyed his most prolific season to date with the Old Trafford club, scoring a career high eight league goals, as well as providing four assists in the Premier League to strengthen his claim for a place in England's World Cup squad for the tournament in Russian Federation this summer.

"We need to be a bit more lucky in these situations".

However, Liverpool were unable to really test David de Gea all afternoon and registered just two shots on target.

"Congratulations Mo", Klopp states during his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Liverpool's clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"Eric Bailly was exactly the opposite, he was on the pitch, after the own goal he showed the mentality we want - a fantastic example for everybody".

"It is all about the result and we lost".

"Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russia."In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".

Lukaku scored in United's last game against Crystal Palace, having netted a week earlier against Chelsea.

"If you win the title next year then everyone will know it was a good signing". For them, maybe a point is good but we never play for a point. I think I responded quite well even with some different things around my life - burglars and things like that - so it wasn't easy for me, especially in October. Big rivalry for ages but in the last few years Man United were more successful than us, we respect that. "Liverpool needed somebody who started the development with a big thirst for being immediately successful which is quite hard".
