Mourinho, Man United got things right vs. Liverpool at noisy Old Trafford

United opened up a five-point gap on their arch-rivals with the narrow victory in the race to finish as runners-up.

The style of head coach Vincenzo Montella is similar with Unai Emery, but the Italian doesn't make enough changes during or between games and shows a lack of understanding the opposition.

The Frenchman missed Man United's 2-1 win over Liverpool after suffering a gash to his leg in training on the eve of the game.

"I've tried all sorts of different things to bring the best out of me over the years and I can say that I've given my best, so I can look back with no regrets". Marcus Rashford's skill in scoring the first goal on Saturday was stunning, and players like Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard add a sprinkling of flair.

United drew the first leg in Seville 0-0...

Rashford has made 27 league appearances this season, coming off the bench 13 times. Last season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho did an admirable job convincing his club and everybody else that winning the Europa League was the point.

Most clubs would be delighted to be sitting second in the Premier League, into the FA Cup quarter-finals and on the verge of a return to the last eight of the Champions League.

The boss discussed a wide range of topics in his press conference at Old Trafford, including Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford and the challenge facing the Reds on Tuesday night.

As Memphis Depay secured his move to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in 2015, the then 21-year-old was dubbed "the next" Portugal worldwide; only for lack of opportunity and low confidence to quickly bring that short-lasting theory to an end.

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress. But you've got to always work hard, and he does. But he's a player that we trust and I told that before the Liverpool match where probably not many of you [the media] were expecting him to start. "So I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us".

Rashford's man-of-the-match display made up for two big absences in Mourinho's lineup. Among left-wingers, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez are now superior players than the 20-year-old on their day. The formidable troika of Mohammad Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were found wanting against the might of Mourinho, who set up his team in such a way that it negated the high-flying Liverpool side, who had scored a whopping 67 goals in 29 matches, prior to this blockbuster clash at Old Trafford.
