They left it looking rather shakier.

"I think with all the minutes around the two goals we conceded then a draw would have been deserved for us, but because we made these two mistakes we have to take the result like it is".

They're down to fourth in the table, five points behind United in second, and looked largely ineffective on Saturday against their rivals.

Marcus Rashford naturally grabbed all the headlines due to his brace, but one unlikely United player managed to surprising garner a lot of praised from the fans, thanks to a moment that occurred around the 58th minute of the game.

Mourinho, who was sent off himself for putting one foot on the pitch during United's game at Southampton earlier this season, said: "Probably you are not expecting my answer - but I'm happy with the decision".

'We should have had a penalty around the Fellaini situation with Sadio, ' said Klopp.

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

The Reds conceded both their goals in nearly identical positions as twice Dejan Lovren was bullied off the ball by Lukaku and Rashford made Klopp's team pay for their mistakes as he took both his goals superbly. "You can always lose a header or a challenge with Romelu Lukaku, of course, but there is a gap in behind and we need to close that".

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.

West Bromwich Albion's woes continued as they slipped to a 4-1 home defeat by Leicester City.
