Marcus Rashford scored a first half double for United, and Liverpool did not have enough to turn the game around in the second half, despite an Eric Bailly own goal.

His two goals against Juergen Klopp's side took his league tally to six.

Asked about Rashford ahead of United's Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday night, Mourinho said: 'I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League - Frank De Boer.

"They try to win matches in an honest way, by outpassing and outscoring opponents and what we saw yesterday was a team winning via an alternative route".

United managed to hold out for the victory, which means they have a five-point cushion over Liverpool in second place.

"He is doing well, he has come in and he has got the right mentality and he has shown the manager what he can do".

'But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons. We were more offensive than Manchester, but not too offensive.

"When we have the ball we have to play football, they are physically very strong.If we can win the ball, we can use the space, it'll help of course, it's not an attacking team against a defending team".

Mohamed Salah was also spotted having his shirt tugged back by Ashley Young inside the box upon replay, but the Egyptian stayed on his feet and the officials opted against pointing to the spot. For them it will be maybe a good point but for us, 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. "Liverpool needed somebody who started the development with a big thirst for being immediately successful which is quite hard".
