Man Utd beat Liverpool because Paul Pogba was NOT playing


Only three times have United conceded the first goal at home in the Premier League and gone on to lose, with the last time being in 2008-09 against Liverpool. Later on, his assist for Jesse Lingard completely broke the champions.

After two impressive wins against Chelsea and now more recently Liverpool, José Mourinho is slowly turning the negative discourse surrounding his philosophy at Manchester United. "I am not the kind of mechanic coach that says A pass to B, B to C, C to D. We have different options", he said.

While Liverpool enjoyed the bulk of possession, especially in the second half, United's back four showed other timeless qualities providing solid, organised defence and gave little space to their opponents.

They'll be calling him "The Psychic One" before long.

The 57-year-old also believes Rashford's progress has been hindered since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, as the young forward made only his first start since Boxing Day on Saturday. Of course he was fundamental.

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

"He bullied Dejan Lovren and it was his presence and ability in the air that created both of Marcus Rashford's goals".

The England global headed the ball into his stride, before skilfully chopping young Trent Alexander-Arnold onto his right foot and expertly finishing into the bottom right.

"Nobody asks me one second - I had six interviews - about the penalty". It was because he was impressing a lot in training and, sometimes, that's the point. Every time he is left out of the starting line-up, questions are raised about his long-term future and his relationship with Mourinho, but the United boss insisted that his selection or otherwise has been based purely upon his impact in training.

"I think the withdrawal of Paul Pogba yesterday sort of fell into José Mourinho's lap in terms of team selection".

The youngster cut inside and blasted a finish past Loris Karius and got his second when confusion in the box ended with the ball falling to Rashford and he converted from just inside the box. "The injury? It was contact with a player in the last minute of the session yesterday". "That's why I don't like the winter market very much".

"My experiences of the past, I understand that's part of the game".
