United beat Liverpool at Old Trafford thanks to two first half goals from Marcus Rashford, yet the statistics from the game confirmed that Jurgen Klopp's visitors had dominated most of the key statistics from the game.
"Second place may now be out of reach as United have a five point advantage that may be hard to drag back, but does that mean the winners of the game yesterday are a better team".
"Ours is lacking and our on the spot decisions are lacking in the big, big games - that's where it matters".
"I think that was probably something that, looking back with hindsight, the club would probably regret, trying to keep him in the summer", said Le Tissier, who scored 209 goals for Southampton during his 16 years at the club. Rashford is an English player and you want to give him time and he may make mistakes, but Mourinho is not like that, he wants results.
"I think we were all on the same page".
He said the players, while in the dressing room, told Bailly that he had scored an incredible goal.
"We have to defend these situations better". The first chance he had. he scored. They're playing well and have confidence.
United won't open it up, I don't see that happening at all. I reckon he would have got a penalty, but that is not the way Klopp has his players thinking.
It feels like he's nailed on to score every time he walks onto a football pitch right now. The most marvellous smarmy git of them all.
"If he has one or two not good games, he puts him out".
"We want to go directly into the Champions League again, there's not many places for it and second (place) would be ideal obviously". If the game becomes open then Liverpool will win and Jose knows that, and doesn't like it.
But it was far too little, too late for United. Therefore the longer the game goes on the more it suits United. He starts some and comes from the bench in others.
