Manchester United derby hero Rashford unworried by time on the bench

The former Reds striker told the Irish Independent: "Jurgen Klopp claimed the referee cost Liverpool a point at Old Trafford, but I wouldn't agree with him on this occasion".

Eric Bailly's freaky 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.

"We have to defend these situations better".

Liverpool found themselves two goals down at half-time after two goal-kicks that were won superbly by Romelu Lukaku were twice punished by Rashford. "In training is where I'm doing most of my learning but you have to take it into the game and against Liverpool it worked".

While Rose could replace Luke Shaw at United, Milinkovic-Savic could fill the void created by the soon-to-retire Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini, who is yet to sign a new deal with the Red Devils and could leave on a free at the end of the campaign.

"It's really hard to take". I know Mohamed Salah scores the goals but when Firmino plays well he holds the ball up, drawing fouls, he brings the quicker players into play.

Does Mourinho deserve more credit for giving the youngster regular game time?

The key man will be Manchester United's most important player all season, De Gea. He was upset with a player and the same happened to me against Crystal Palace where I was upset with my player and therefore they (the officials) understood that too.

It wasn't pretty, but they set up to frustrate Liverpool and capitalise on their weaknesses, and the final scoreline says that worked-leaving Liverpool and Klopp a day or two to get over their annoyance and then get to work on showing they can bounce back.

But Aldridge has disagreed with Klopp for blaming the result on the lack of a penalty decision.

On the whole, though, Liverpool had a right to feel aggrieved given they were the better side and saw a clear penalty denied in the second half.
