English Premier League: Rashford double helps Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1

Danny Ward goes the wrong way as Callum Gribbin puts Manchester United ahead at Anfield

(Files) Manchester United's English striker Marcus Rashford (2nd R) celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal at Old Trafford in Manchester, on August 26, 2017.

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly needed some serious skill and extremely bad luck for an own goal against Liverpool.

"When Pogba returns to fitness, I can only see him making the bench".

United manager Mourinho told BBC: "I spoke with Gareth Southgate a few weeks ago and Gareth told me it doesn't matter if he plays or he doesn't play". Two big wins in quick succession could mean a great victory against great rival just days after an incredible comeback against Crystal Palace.

"We need to be a bit more lucky in these situations".

In a typically frenetic match between England's two biggest teams historically, Liverpool failed to handle United's aggressive and direct start as two long balls forward resulted in goals from the 20-year-old Rashford in the 14th and 24th minutes.

Thankfully, the Croat offered himself up for sacrifice, seeming to go on a one-man mission to ensure that his Reds side, indeed, did not play to earn a point - they played to lose all three.

There were unsavoury scenes at London Stadium where pitch invasions and mass protests in the stands forced owners David Sullivan and David Gold to leave the director's box, with police brought in to restore order. We had also the in the first half (a chance) to finish the game and make it 3-0 but we didn't use our chance. United's Romelu Lukaku hit a through ball to Juan Mata, which was denied by the Reds' defense.

"It didn't go our way because of the two goals we conceded", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said: "We have to defend these situations better".

"Romelu Lukaku is strong in these challenges, so if you can not avoid the long ball then you have to be there to help your mate for the second ball".

In the North East, Newcastle United secured a 3-0 victory over Southampton to move five points clear of the bottom three, piling the pressure on Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino.

Klopp charged down the Old Trafford touch line to berate Lovren late in his side's 2-1 defeat on Saturday.

Tottenham bounced back from their bitterly disappointing Champions League exit at the hands of Juventus by coming from behind to thrash Bournemouth and leapfrog Liverpool into third.
