Mourinho: Why I'm Happy The Ref Didn't Send Off Klopp

Mourinho: Why I'm Happy The Ref Didn't Send Off Klopp”

Jose Mourinho was "happy" that Jürgen Klopp was not sent to the stands during Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday, despite his counterpart being reprimanded for leaving his technical area.

Manchester United now switch their attentions back towards Champions League affairs and their crunch clash against Sevilla in the last 16 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Rashford was deadly at Old Trafford, grabbing both his goals within the first twenty minutes of action to set United up for smooth sailing for the rest of the match.

"Seville and Brighton are more important games than Liverpool", the United manager said.

"We need to take the confidence from this game into future games".

The midfielder missed the 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday after suffering an injury in training on Friday and he was not part of the training session open to the media on Monday morning.

The 20-year-old has played in 27 Premier League matches this season, however just a handful of those appearances have seen him complete the full 90 minutes, with new signing Alexis Sanchez seen by many as yet another threat to any sort of continued inclusion.

The result was the first time Jose Mourinho or Klopp have got one over each other on English soil, the three previous league games between the two having been drawn.

"We have to defend these situations better. We had also in the first half (a chance) to finish the game and make it 3-0 but we didn't use our chance". They were then even more concerned when they saw that Mourinho had reacted by deploying Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic in a midfield two.

"Scott is fantastic", he added.

An own goal from Eric Bailly offered the Reds a lifeline late in the second term but the damage had already been done as United moved five points clear of their fierce rivals in the race for second.

"He doesn't have to (speak to me)", the forward said.

"In the second half we did well but the first half of course was not really good so it's frustrating in the end, because you ask yourself why we didn't play as good (as we did in the) second half after the game", he told his club's website.

Eric Bailly's weird 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.

Lukaku was instrumental in allowing United to get an early foothold in yesterday's game, earning an assist for Marcus Rashford's opener, before playing a pivotal role for Rashford's second of the afternoon. He has got good people around him, and they always assure him he is in a good place at the moment and what kid wouldn't want to be at Manchester United at the moment?
