3 things that went right for Manchester United against Liverpool
Marcus Rashford's two strikes in the first half were enough for Manchester United to beat Liverpool. The win strengthens their grip on second place – 5 points ahead of 3rd placed Liverpool.
Eric Bailly scored at the wrong end to give Liverpool some hope but they failed to capitalise on it. The Reds might argue about the 3 penalties that were not given but United were clearly the better team today.
Here are three things the Red Devils got right:
#3 Starting Marcus Rashford
Manchester United's wonderboy was the difference between the two sides in the first half. He was always on his toes and gave the flat-footed Trent Alexander-Arnold a tough time.
He squeezed past the full-back and Lovren and scored past Loris Karius with a blistering drive. In the build-up to the goal, he shipped Alexander-Arnold back to Liverpool.
The Englishman picked up a yellow card just after his second goal but was still jumping into tackles and showing the passion on the pitch – something United have been waiting to see!
