Manchester United and Liverpool met today at Old Trafford for their Premier League match and the full-time result was 2-1 in favour of the former.
Marcus Rashford hit the net twice giving Mourinho’s side the points despite a largely defensive display in which they had just 32% of possession and two shots on target.
The win meant Mourinho’s side narrowed the gap on runaway leaders Manchester City to 13 points – at least until City play at Stoke on Monday – but, more pertinently, they are now five points clear of the third-placed Merseysiders.
Rashford, making his first league start since 26 December, will rightly grab the headlines but Romelu Lukaku was instrumental in both goals, and Liverpool simply could not deal with his physical power in the first half.
