Manchester United deserved the win against Liverpool, says Jose Mourinho

Rashford was without a Premier League goal since December, but his two against Liverpool took him to 12 in all competitions this season to make it his most productive campaign in front of goal. Later on, his assist for Jesse Lingard completely broke the champions.

Something similar they proved again against Crystal Palace, while the Liverpool win was a typical thing for the manager.

He said: "Right now I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch".

While Liverpool enjoyed the bulk of possession, especially in the second half, United's back four showed other timeless qualities providing solid, organised defence and gave little space to their opponents. Against champions Chelsea, they have one win and one defeat.

"He plays like he has already played five or six years in the Premier League - but he is still young". Of course he was fundamental.

"If you leave the technical area by a couple of metres - or in this case 20 metres - but to speak to your own player and not to complain about the referee's decision, they made the right decision".

"But also the assists are going up so I think, at the end of the day, I will be up there in terms of goals". Mata was ultimately beaten to the ball, but Rashford was on hand to put United two up inside 25 minutes. It was because he was impressing a lot in training and, sometimes, that's the point.

The shrugged reaction answered the question clearly enough, even before Rashford revealed that he wasn't the slightest bit concerned about his global place, thanks to the England manager maintaining a consistent line of contact during recent weeks and months.

"The next game is very important for us, maybe the most important game of the season".

Rashford pulled out the "Ronaldo Chop" too - but needed one less touch to find the back of the net.

Indeed, had it not been for an impact injury suffered by Paul Pogba in what Mourinho described as "the final minute" of training on Friday, there is every chance Rashford would have been sidelined once more. I don't remember David [De Gea] having to make an awesome save or many unsafe situations.

"However, with assists, I really want to be up there as well because I want to be known for my all-round game as it is something that people don't think I can do".
