Jurgen Klopp disappointed penalty appeal

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has said that he is doing most of his learning in training after scoring both goals in his team's 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday. It was his first start since December 26, having fallen further down the pecking order at United following the arrival in January of Alexis Sanchez.

United had be content with playing Matic and Mctominay in the midfield as star midfielder Paul Pogba got injured in training yesterday and could not make it to the squad today.

"We managed to score two very quick goals thanks to Marcus Rashford". "Of course he was fundamental".

The first goal in particular would remind fans of a marauding Portuguese who would often cut back before unleashing a powerful shot into the corner.

Liverpool center back Dejan Lovren was bullied by Romelu Lukaku, experiencing the kind of game he endured against Tottenham in October when he was embarrassingly substituted after 31 minutes.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claimed the key moment was referee Craig Pawson's failure to award a penalty for United midfielder Marouane Fellaini's tackle on Sadio Mane in the final 10 minutes.

"They didn't have a lot of moments but when they did they were really unsafe so we could have done better as a team. But Seville and Brighton are die or live games so the next two are much more important than this one".

While that may have been news for fans and media, it may not have been to Rashford, who said post-game that he was never concerned about his place with England, adding that Southgate keeps players consistently updated as to their standing. Having been denied multiple times at home, Muriel should be focused to beat arguably the best goalkeeper in the world right now in David De Gea to give his side a fighter's chance in this tie.

"It was nice that he was here to watch but there are a lot of players in contention", said Rashford. We need to make sure we bounce back from this and get a result next week, going into the global break.

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 think there's always that rivalry, but even more this year", he told MUTV.
