Jose Mourinho: 'Referee right not to send off Jurgen Klopp'

In the aftermath of Saturday lunchtime's victory over local rivals Liverpool, Lingard's social media joked that McTominay had to remind Lingard and fellow United teammate Marcus Rashford about United's match on Tuesday night, putting an end to their plans for a celebration of the Liverpool victory.

Jurgen Klopp revealed his starting XI for the huge Premier League game against Man United on Saturday and fans are stunned that he has dropped Jordan Henderson.

"Perfect result. I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a ideal performance". We had a lot of OK moments, two good moments in the first half where we could have finished a little better, more clinical.

Lukaku scored in United's last game against Crystal Palace, having netted a week earlier against Chelsea. "Clyney is back but he's got absolutely no rhythm", Klopp said.

We are under pressure whether we are ahead of United or five points behind'.

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.


"You know why? Well we might not win the league this year, but everybody loves watching them play, I love watching them play".

"He is doing well, he has come in and he has got the right mentality and he has shown the manager what he can do". "What matters is the points".

The native of Manchester is presently enjoying his third season as a senior United player.

The African pair have been sensational for the Reds this season, scoring 46 goals between them, and Klopp is now delighted the pair will not miss crucial league games after the Africa Cup of Nations was moved to the summer time.

"We have to defend these situations better".

"With Romelu Lukaku, he can win the headers sometimes - we did it afterwards [won the headers], but in these two situations we didn't".
