Mourinho happy with Klopp decision

Mourinho happy with Klopp decision

Fellaini replaced goalscorer Marcus Rashford in the 70th minute.

Eric Bailly's freakish own goal gave Liverpool hope in the second half, but United held on for a first victory over their North West rivals since January, 2016.

"The manager doesn't have to (speak to me)", the 20-year-old told the club's website. In the first half, the game gave us the opportunity to be direct, fast and score goals, more than we did.

Mourinho barely celebrated United's first two goals but he couldn't hide his anger at Mata after the miss and his facial expressions said it all on the sidelines. "Liverpool is Liverpool, Liverpool is a big match, Liverpool is a match against a valid competitor for the top four, but nothing is decided".

The Hammers now sit in 16th, on 30 points, just three points out of the relegation zone.

Supporters flocked towards the director's box chanting "sack the board" at co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, while another ran onto the field to grab the corner flag. "They always assure him he is in a good place at the moment and what kid wouldn't want to be at United at the moment?"

"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. "Even in set pieces, corners, unsafe situations we were in control so I think we deserved it", said Mourinho. His limitations were really exposed when United retreated to their 18-yard line and challenged Liverpool to break them down.

Alexis Sanchez

Both the goals scored by Marcus Rashford in the opening 24 minutes came from long balls towards the head of United's Belgian target man Romelu Lukaku.

Sanchez was signed in a swap deal that reportedly made him the Premier League's best-paid player but the Chile worldwide has scored just one goal in eight United appearances, well below his career strike rate.

"It didn't go our way because of the two goals we conceded", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

"I think we deserved the goal and then it was the situation with the best piece of football in the whole game, the one-two between Roberto and Sadio and a clear foul and no penalty".

"But we are very similar in terms of points in the Premier League".

West Brom boss Pardew admitted his days in charge are numbered after a seventh successive defeat, 4-1 at home to Leicester on Saturday, left the Midlands club eight points adrift of safety at the bottom of the standings.
