Mourinho outwits Klopp as Rashford & Lukaku expose Liverpool’s soft centre
There was plenty of talk of Liverpool’s attacking threat as they headed to Old Trafford on Saturday, but Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku did all the damage as Manchester United took a tighter grip on second place in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory very much in the mould of Jose Mourinho.
After consecutive poor starts which materialised into come-from-behind victories, it was an electrifying opening period that led United past Jurgen Klopp’s men. If Rashford was the hero, Lukaku was the beating heart of a wonderfully determined performance from the hosts.
Rashford opened the scoring after making the most of Lukaku’s flick-on from a David de Gea goal kick. With plenty still to do, the England man took a touch, then knocked the ball inside Trent Alexander-Arnold and turned superbly to fire across Loris Karius into the far corner.
Mourinho will be making a huge mistake if he forgets about match-winner Rashford
